Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Unfortunately we would not return. We waited over an hour from ordering for our first course to arrive. Then the same again for the second. We talked about going home when our main course finally arrived with one of the dishes missing . The service...was appalling , the reason given busy with takeaways.More

Had a wonderful night at China royal with a group of 7 friends. We was welcomed by a friendly member of staff and seated. Our drinks order was promptly taken, we were left to decide on our food. Most of us opted for starters they...looked amazing, food was hot and tasted delicious, we all looked forward to our mains dishes. Next came out our mains, Food was delicious and very plentiful, portion sizes were very good value for money, we was all very impressed, it was all delightful, everyone enjoyed their meals. The owner even came out and spoke to us, he was lovely. We all highly recommend this place, won’t be long till we visit again, 10/10 for us! ThankyouMore

What has happened to this place, we have used this takeaway for over 10 years, granted not weekly and we have not had one for a long time, but this would be always our go to Chinese Takeaway. Never again, now Greasy, Heavy and poor...quality. Tonight’s spare ribs were more fat than meat and left pools of oil on the late, even our dog walked away. We paid over £60 for food for a TV family night in that has left us all over thirsty and bloated and uncomfortable. In hind sight we should have returned the food for a refund but once dished up persevering thing it will get better, 70% went in the bin. The chicken balls were doughy and soft, all in all a very disappointing meal. My husband did ring to advise and the young man on the phone said sorry then advised the restaurant now has a new owner, but chef is the same. We find this hard to believe as the food is nowhere near the quality it used to be. Such a shame.More

We had a meal at this excellent Chinese restaurant with friends last night, it was our first visit but it certainly won’t be our last! We had pre-booked a table thank goodness, as it was very busy all evening with no spare tables that I...could see. We were warmly welcomed by the owner and shown to our table immediately, where we enjoyed ore dinner drinks while we read the menu. We decided to have the set meal for five people, which included a starter of pork spare ribs, and wontons. The spare ribs were huge, the biggest we’d ever had, and more importantly, they were delicious! The main courses included sweet and sour chicken (we swapped the S&P pork for chicken), beef in oyster sauce, chicken in blank bean sauce, king prawns in tomato sauce, roasted duck and young chow fried rice. Tea and coffee was also included in the menu and other dishes could be ordered as an extra. We had an excellent evening, the staff were efficient and friendly and looked after us very well.More

So beef in oyster sauce- beef was boiled not freshly cut and fried as was the chicken in a basket. Why would you say it’s fried chicken / beef then just boil it?? Anyway with the 10% hike in pricing for lesser food offerings we...will not be returning..More

This would have been a 5 star review because the food was great and all the waitresses were lovely , however unfortunately the meal was ruined when the manager/waiter came over and asked us to ‘keep the noise down’ regarding our 1 year old baby....We were eating at 5pm to avoid the busier times - so uncalled for and won’t be coming back.More

The last time we visited the China Royal was about 10 years ago and in our opinion our recent visit was just as enjoyable as then. We had booked our table earlier and we were pleased we had as the restaurant got very busy after...we arrived. Service was excellent and the staff very helpful and allowed us to try the wine before ordering . We ordered a couple of starters to share which were the chicken wings and a portion of ribs as well as getting a complimentary bowl of prawn crackers. We decided to share a beef curry and a portion of fried rice and chips and there was more than enough food for the both of us. The food was very good and we had a bottle of the house Pinot Grigio which was excellent and reasonably priced. We really enjoyed our visit and looking forward to our next one.More

I've visited China Royal many times over the years and have always enjoyed the experience. Within the last year the restaurant has changed hands but has definitely not suffered as a result. The new owner is very attentive and hands on, serving food and clearing...tables etc. His staff are friendly and seem to be happy working there. The menu is very similar to the previous owner's and the standard and quality of the food is as good, if not slightly better. The restaurant is small and cosy which I find very welcoming. I shall definitely be continuing to visit and look forward to the next time.More
