Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 October 2013

According to the address on card and receipt this is now the Restaurant Chinese Royal, Z.X.Z Hotelaria LDA. It is large and near the Hotel Oura Praia, on the roundabout on Estrada Santa Eulalia and Rua Jose Fontana and next to the Karoake bar, The Old House.
Restaurant was recommended by a patron of the hotel we stayed at so thought would be okay??
We paid 21 euros, for two mains, glass of wine and lemonade, but left most of the food as tasteless. Front shop staff were rude, spending time glaring at us through the window whilst eating, and serving staff unhelpful. If this were in UK, I would have gone to Immigration and Trading Standards! Restaurant at front in the open but right on the main road, which is where they wanted us to sit. Inside was better with a few nice decorations.

Nice change to eat out and a walk to this place in the fresh air to generate appetite was hardly worth while. Although this was out of season and very quiet, the food was average and the wine selection poor.
It was as though the staff were also on vacation, service slow and mediocre.

Began by waiting for 10 mins after being seated (we were the only ones in the place).
Then we were asked if we would like drinks.

We ordered the entire meal (starter, main, and drink) from the "Tourist" menu.

The starters arrived, before the drinks, one short.
I pointed this out, and the main courses were brought. One main course short.

Two starters were then brought out (we only needed one remember).
The finally the remaining main course was brought out.
THen we got our drinks.

If this is the level of confusion when there are 5 people eating there, who knows what the comedy value might be with a few more.

The starter was nice - crisp, not too greasy and tasty.
The main courses were bland and uninteresting.
There are better places to eat in the area.

A shame, as the starters showed some promise.
