Visited last weekend, the Owner began to serve my husband and then abandoned him because someone more important came to the bar. He was extremely rude and dismissive. Food quality has gone down, even the famous spare ribs were dry and chewy. Food was tasteless and not worth the money, drinks were very expensive.

We have had some fabulous meals from her in the past - both eating in and takeaway. Unfortunately our last two visits have been very disappointing. A couple of months ago, we ordered a takeaway, drove the ten miles to pick it up, got home, went and served it up and the order was wrong. Rather than the sweet and... More

Nice cosy little place and reasonably attentive service but unfortunately the food was not good at all. Soggy seaweed, dry salt & pepper prawns, flavourless duck and our sizzling beef fillet tasted like stewing steak, plus it was lacking in fresh peppers just lots of bamboo shoots and water chestnuts. We had to send back our deep fried chicken with... More

We have just visited the China Royal and have to say It was very disappointing. We are on holiday and was recommended this restaurant but from walking in felt un comfortable and not welcome. We had our 2 young children with us which I think was probably the issue. The youngest waiter from behind the bar seemed rude and un... More

Having been disappointed with the take away last time, we were pleased the standard of the food had improved considerably.

Five years ago it was difficult to fault the place. it is still excellent but not as good; crispy duck with pancakes used to be served on the bone and shredded at the table: now it comes ready shredded leaving one unsure whether it is has been freshly cooked or out of one of the large containers of pre-cooked meat....

Had a table of 2 - book ahead, very busy. food staff and service excellent. Crispy spare ribs the best in the world. This business has been on the go forty odd years and I can see why. Owner is very lovely and kind.Will definitely be back - thanks Simon.

I came here for dinner recently and it was just as good as last time I came. The food was faultless and full of flavour. I had the famous spare ribs for a starter followed by satay kings prawns. This place is a must.

Visited a couple of times now both the restaurant and takeaway and never been disappointed. Gorgeous sweet and sour chicken, packed full of flavour and meat. Would recommend a visit.
