At the Royal Inn, I had the best veggie spring rolls ever!! The restaurant is a bit of the touristic centre, but worth the short walk!! Friendly staff.

This super-chic Chinese in Canterbury is popular with a trendy Kentish crowd, and is located in Longport. Perfect for posh dinner parties, stylish dates and events, the Royal Inn Contemporary Chinese is decorated with designer wallpaper, blonde wooden floors and suede seating, and the restaurant is popular for its authentic cuisine and Chinese tea. The Royal Inn has a cosmopolitan, energetic vibe, and there is a private dining room for exclusive soirees. Favourites from the menu include the lobster served with crispy noodles and a ginger and spring onion sauce; the crispy aromatic duck pancakes with cucumber and Hoi Sin sauce; and the tofu stir-fry with macadamia nuts. We also love the special artistic tea.
