This is a review for the Oranmore branch. Still get take out here on a regular basis but I fear they may have fallen foul to the down turn and trying to make a buck by other means. You are now greeted on entry to a display of various aroma therapy type products. The various smells permeate through out the entire Restaurant and unfortunately greatly detracts from the experience. Further some of the staff now try to sell you these products which totally takes from the dining experience. We don't get out often due to 2 small kids now and to be a sales target for something that really has no place in a restaurant is a bit bizzar. It's a pity as we loved this place for it's food, so take away it is from here until they rid the place of their new venture. They do have a BYOB also just as an FYI ;-)

This is our default Restaurant. The medium hot General TSO chicken is a must try if you like your food spicy and don't be afraid to ask for extra chilli if you like it hot hot. Further if a meal is not stated with your choice of meat of vegetarian they will gladly accommodate your request. Nice clean nearly cafe modern style with added oriental touches which actually works. Nice friendly atmosphere and relaxed. Only minor gripe is that they can be overly efiient sometimes clearing away your plates but this usually only happens when it's very quite. Usually a red & white wine on offer or you can bring your own which is nice. Child friendly also for early starts. Menu does not change very often though. Over all an excellent experience.

My husband and I were staying in Oranmore for the weekend and as we love chinese food gave the royal villa a visit. The restuarant itself was very nice as were the staff and service. I was very disappointed with the food however. I had salted chillie chicken wings for starter but it was covered in peppers. I like peppers but there were far too many. for the quality of the whole meal we both thought that this was an expensive restuarant compared to chinese restuarants in our home locality, which have food of superior quality and keener prices.

Lovely resturant, good atmosphere. Lovely food. Portion sizes were just about average, starter could have had a little varied salad rather than a token lettuce leaf to fill the plate, but the ribs were good. Service was very slow, though I was assured by my friend this was not general. Overall a good experience. Beer was super chilled, always good

We were in Oranmore for a quick weekend break and decided to try The Royal Villa chinese. The three of us had a table booked for 9pm and were very pleased with everything. The tables are well laid out so you have plenty of room and the staff were helpful but not overpowering. All the dishes we ordered were excellent form the meat sung to start to the sizziling dishes. The sizzling dish which a combination of prawn, chicken and beef was a great idea and tasted great. Overall I thought this restaurant had a nice relaxed atmosphere and was value for money. We all agreed to try and get back there again soon

This chinese restaurant situated in the small town of Oranmore has a very relaxed atmosphere and is great to out for a meal. The food is really good and they do a great midweek menu with two courses and a glass of wine for €20 which is great value. The staff are really friendly and made our evening very memorable, would def recommend.
