I have eaten here dozens of times with family and friends! Royal Chinese BBQ should be listed under St. Louis rather than the small inner suburb of Olivette. Excellent Hong Kong style cuisine, friendly staff, clean/pleasant restaurant. Roast duck, BBQ pork, honey walnut shrimp, stir-fried green beans, sizzling rice seafood soup, chicken with black bean sauce and asparagus, Singapore fried... More

We arrived fairly early and were the only ones there for a while. We were served quickly and professionally, but they could smile a little more, or actually, at all. We enjoyed wonderful dumplings and shared a hot and sour soup - both were great. We then shared the Peking Duck which was extraordinary. Very nicely done. The atmosphere is... More

If you are in the Olive Blvd area in STL and looking for Chinese food, this is a required stop. We always order the Barbeque Wonton Noodle soup (sometimes even get a second bowl). Another staple is the beef stew pot. If you like seafood, try the salt and pepper calamari.

Best local Asian cuisine in town. Marginal wine list. Steady, longstanding waitstaff. Garlic green beans are *****. Black bean chicken is too. Super place for families.

Hands down the best Chinese sit down restaurant in the Chinese district and surrounding area's. We eat here a lot and we have never been disappointed in our selection of foods. This place sells roasted ducks that sit in the window.

I've been going to Royal Chinese BBQ for years. It's one of my favorites and it has always been one of my Chinese friends' favorites and it is very authentic. I went with extended family for a family celebration, and it was as good as ever. I especially recommend the hot pots, BBQ duck, and bean dishes. Those are things... More

Homemade Peking ducks hang to your right as you enter the restaurant, dripping with the promise of crispy skin and luscious fat. We got an array of beef, chicken, and vegetable dishes and all were top notch. Authentic? When I asked for fortune cookies the host scoffed and said, "We don't sell those here!"

My husband and I have been eating there for years. Food is always good. He loves the Singapore noodles and I like the barbecue pork. Would recommend this restaurant.

Good ingredients, great recopies very well executed. We met some friends 7 people in the party and we took full advantage of the lazy susan in the middle of the table to share the great meals. The owners were nice enough to spend time with my son who is learning Chinese at school. The prices were fair and reasonable and... More

I was introduced to Salt and Pepper dishes last year and found the Royal has a variety of dishes prepared this way. We enjoyed the salt and pepper tofu, salt and pepper fish/chicken fried rice and Orange Chicken. Very fresh food and friendly service.
