“what happened?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2012

This place does indeed have the best chinese food on the island. Always consistent, hot, and flavorful. Unfortunately I have to give it an average rating as the service has become absolutely terrible. The service used to match the food. I used to look forward to my frequent visits here as the staff was always very friendly and efficient. The last couple of visits however has left me wondering where the old staff went as the current new staff that i have encountered have no business being in the service industry. Not even a hello. just drop the menu on your table without even looking at you and come back a bit later and stare at you notepad in hand as if telepathically asking you if you are ready to order. Mains appear at your table when youve barely started the apps, Drinks don't arrive until after another table is cleared, cleaned and reset (not busy either by the way, only 2 tables in the place) , Bill gets dropped on your table in the middle of your mains (no I guess i won't be having dessert or coffee) I just don't get it. I will probably still go back as it seems to be the only good chinese food on the island but it is truly a shame what has happened to the service.

“The best Chinese-Canadian on P.E.I.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2012

I've tried pretty much all of the Chinese-Canadian restaurants on the Island and the Royal Garden is not only the best food-wise but it is the best overall value as well.
