Closed down because of poor service. The take-aways used to take forever, even though the food was mostly good. I also wasn't sure about hygiene - looked dicey. Pity, because it did seem popular amongst Chinese people, and the neighbourhood still lacks a good Chinese Restaurant.

The restaurant has been closed 4 at least 6 months!! The food was good but they have been closed by health inspectors! Guess they did not pay the expected bribe!

I don't know where Raymond JS was eating, but the photograph is not of the Regal Palace. On the contrary, I found the service polite and fast, and the food is genuine Chinese.This restaurant is the favoured one by local Chinese people, and their overseas guests. Garth Roodt

Rushed service and shortage of choice selected was what I experienced. Service is abrupt and brash, and unless you like being pushed around, avoid at all costs. Smoking was allowed in this restaurant dispite my objection to it. Food is overpriced and bland.

Thank RaymondJS
