We had dinner here on a Sunday evening and enjoyed it enough that we'd consider coming back. However, there were a few things that would keep me from rating the Royal Palace better than average. My first, and most significant issue is that I ordered shredded pork with broccoli, and what I received was a huge platter of broccoli, with... More

The purveyors - two brothers from Taiwan eschew ordering from China and source their produce and meats very well. Free range chicken, etc. Ask for the Chinese menu! This will give you a broader and more authentic menu option. We invariably go for the chicken dish which is cooked bone in and covered with red pepper flakes - it is... More

Ordered for delivery and was initially let down solely by the fact that it took over an hour for them to deliver. Then it was continually disappointing as we discovered our meals were not what they expected... rice tasted unusual and the sauce on the 'general tsao's' was not even close to every other general tsao's meal I've eaten.

The food was just okay. Not very impressive but good enough when you are hungry. There was a mistake with our order but this was quickly sorted by the restaurant sending the right order.

I used to live in downtown New Haven years ago and patronized this restaurant. I was always fond of it. Then I moved into the neighboring suburbs and frequented less often, but still occasionally would patronize it. Over the past few years, I've noticed the restaurant often seems very empty, and I could never get my head around why as... More

so sad to write this review. I have been coming here for years and the food was consistently amazing. For the last two years it has gone from an excellent always packed restaurant with a fabulous menu, to an empty place with lousy food and service.

I'd first like to talk about just how cheap Royal's lunch specials are -- around $5.99 for soup, fried rice, and a good sized entree dish. That said, while the prices may be out of this world, the food isn't. My dish tasted OK but was quite oily. Other members of my party had it less good -- one had... More

I came here for lunch on a Saturday. I was the only customer for a while. I ordered hot and sour soup, which in my experience is an excellent predictor of the overall quality of the food in a Chinese restaurant. So it was here. The soup was not great and not bad. There was no meat in it. I... More

I usually visit at least once a month with good friends at lunch time. The past several times it seemed like something was always off, well today was the last time I will be visiting them. From bringing me the wrong soup, the wrong rice and then the wrong main dish was beyond belief. Then to have the owner come... More
