This is the first time that I've tried this restaurant and it was okay, a decent variety of food to choose from

We (three of us) walked into the Royal Buffet this evening at 6:50pm,we were promptly greeted & I asked "is there sushi on the buffet this evening?" I was assured that there was & we were then seated. There was one couple & a family of three seated elsewhere.(Which probably should have been a red flag at 7pm on a... More

It's an average buffet, same food every time you go. Go when it's busy to have fresh food on the buffet, otherwise some items may have been there awhile. Service is good.

The whole family got sick from eating here. We thought maybe it was a one time thing so tried it again awhile later and we all got sick again. Do not recommend it.

Nothing fancy as Chinese food goes, buffet style, but we eat a lot of Chinese and this Chinese food is above average... Now the American foods served are average or below.. Weak desert buffet, but self scooped ice cream is good. If you want eat-in, buffet, Chinese food nothing better for 30 miles. There are also good take-outs.

Most of my reviews are for attractions, not restaurants, because my wife has celiac disease (no gluten) which makes it difficult to find restaurant dishes that don't make her sick. The Royal Buffet has no MSG and plenty of things that are not breaded or fried so I don't wind up paying a buffet fee just for her to nibble... More

It is an average buffet. There are always the same selections without any variation which can either be a good or bad thing. If you go later in the supper hour, the food is not fresh. It's not bad at the beginning of the noon meal when everything is newly prepared.
