“Quite good fun but a little dreary”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2009

The waiters here are good fun and leap on you as soon as you enetr the door although there is an elderly lady here who seems a little tense perhaps because the large room is half empty. Food is not too bad if a little on the expensive side.

“Nice Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2009

We visited Royal China of a lunchtime and found the food to be lovely but not the atmosphere. We were only given the expensive menu and were not offered the lunchtime set menu - although we found out later this was available after we had ordered! We also noted a large table came in and they quickly took the set menu down off the wall and again only offered them the expensive one. So if you go at lunchtime make sure you ask for the lunchtime set menu! For this reason we would not go back!

“Best chinese restaurant I've ever visited!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2009

This place is great!!

Very friendly staff, and the food is absolutely fantastic!! During my last trip to the island, I ended up at this restaurant several times, even though I normally like to visit different restaurants every night.

“great takeaway or eat in restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2008

This chinese restaurant in sandown high street offers a tasty well priced menu. The lunch menu at only £5.99 for 2 courses is extremely good value. In the evenings they will make free deliveries to hotels (and homes ) within a 2-3 mile radius.
The staff are lovely and not pushy. All food is cooked to order.
The spare ribs are to die for!!!
