I've been going to Royal China since it opened at this location...could it be...back in the early 1990's?! The food here has always been great...way above your ordinary Chinese food restaurant.The staff is almost invisible yet you feel well served. The current restaurant decor is warm and intimate...it feels like an evening dinner even though you may be having lunch.... More

Had dinner with friends last week. The only thing that had any real authentic Chinese taste were the Hot and Spicy Soup and the salt and pepper calamari. All other dishes were simply American versions of Chinese food. Rather disappointing because it has the reputation as being the best Chinese restaurant in Santa Rosa. I lived in China for 12...

Very good food. The flavors are exceptional. Hearty portions, enough to take home with you. The sweet and sour soup is wonderful. The service is exceptional . A restaurant to put on your " To Do" list.

This is our new basic but good chinese restaurant. We can eat in or take out. Don't know about delivery. Chow Mein, Lemon Chicken and Broccoli Beef all quite good. The Pot Stickers were too doughy for me, but the filling was good.

I used to live right around the corner and was addicted to their Honey Walnut prawns and Mongolian Lamb. Stopped in a little while back and the food is as tasty as all those years ago. If you want a decadent food experience try their Honey Walnut Prawns. It is food for the Gods

We are on a quest to find the best Chinese food in SR. Sadly this did not fit the bill for us. The food was average, the sauces were sparse, the rice was undercooked plus it was $2 per serving. Tea was extra too and bland. Service was decent. Our 2 favorite places closed, so we are still looking.

Read the reviews on TA and decided to give this place a try for lunch. Arrived on a Tuesday at 12:15pm. Had to wait 3-4 minutes while they prepped a table for me. No one else was waiting when I arrived but the dinning area was full when I was seated. First impression were good. The decor is quite nice... More

The atmosphere is calm and spacious and the wait staff is polite and friendly. The food is consistently good and fresh.The prices are very reasonable and the portions are always large. I particularly like the various prawn dishes and usually have that because I like it so much. The broccoli and beef is also delicious. The menu is very extensive... More

Royal China has been around for a long time and is usually crowed at lunch, for good reason. It is clean, quiet, elegant, tasty, quick and CHEAP for lunch. All lunch specials are under $10 and come with salad (with a great poppy seed dressing), soup- your choice an entree and rice-fried or white or chow mein. Every dish has... More

The vegetarian hot and sour soup wss fantastic. My curried tofu with vegetables was with yellow curry and loaded with nice vegetables and lots of baby bok choy. The staff was very nice, efficient. Would definitely return.
