“Expensive takeaway”
Reviewed 4 December 2013 via mobile

We have used this take away several times recently, over all the food quality is above average for the area with the odd questionable quality of the slimy chicken as others have mentioned.

It is considerably more expensive than the local alternatives, whilst at the same time being marginally better food.

We have never been upset by the service/staff etc but never blown away either. The carpark is a disaster area just waiting to happen.

In conclusion: if you have to have a Chinese in Attleborough then this is depressingly probably your best bet, if you just fancy a Chinese, then go get a curry or Thai

Visited the Royal Garden on Sunday 20th October with a party of friends. Was shown straight to the table and drinks served promptly. We had booked for the buffet eat whatever you like for a set price. The service although quick bordered on being rude, as the waitress hardly let us take off our coats before wanting to take our food order for starters. We were half way through these and the waitress was there again wanting to know what else if anything we wanted. We all felt very rushed. Maybe they thought that if they kept us eating quickly, we would not each so much as we did not have time to let our food settle between courses. I agree with some of the previous comments about the food, the smoked chicken starter did not resemble chicken, very rubbery. The butterfly prawn was all breadcrumb and no prawn. The duck mid course, did not resemble or taste like any other chinese duck I have ever tasted. The choice was also very limited if you did not like very spicy food or lots of garlic. When we came to pay the bill, it was wrong and had to be questioned as there were 3 children in our party of 9, and one of these had been charged full price. For a restaurant that I was led to believe was top quality, I can honestly say that I would not rush back again in a hurry.

Had takeaways a few times and the food has been very good. Sat for a meal and the service was slightly over attentive to start with and then gradually wained. Food didn't turn up and one waitress was rude. I would think twice before booking again.

“Not as good as before!”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

The last time we went was four years ago. This time we went on Sunday 22nd Sept. We had the chicken satay . The chicken was tough and the sauce was thick and gloopy. The smoke chicken was hard. Next we had chicken chow mein, crispy beef, black bean chicken. The chicken in the chow mein was rubbery, the crispy beef hard. The black bean was alright apart from the chicken which felt artificial and, frankly, horrible. The air conditioning was not switched on until the heat in the restaurant became unbearable. When we came here four years ago the staff cared, but now it feels as if they are just going through the motions. We will not come here again.
