Royal Seafood in Chinatown

Hi All,

Has anyone been recently? My wife read this week's review in the Times and wants to try, but some older posts here suggest that it's leaves a bit to be desired. Would love some first hand knowledge.

  1. Very old thread. Apologies, but wife and son went tonight.

    Lobster was excellent.
    Fried flounder was exceptional - I love that the bones on the edges of the flounder were fried so well that they could be chewed and eaten
    Watercrest with preserved bean curd was very well done.

    Can't wait to come back for Dim sum.

    1. they changed chefs like maybe 2 years ago? supposedly its alot better now (used to be awful). A friend of mine tried with her parents like a year ago and said it was surprisingly good

      ive been meaning to try, but just haven't gotten around to it.
