Royal Palace (Chinese) www.ctmenusonline.com/royalpalace.htm

this place is a disappointment. can not figure it out. many people recommended. but it was ok at best. may not be worthwhile to go back to unless we are really curious to see why it is do highly recommended.

(32  Orange St.) stick to the chinese menu (Lion’s Head, Ants Climbing the Tree Noodles, Doe Meow, which is soy bean leaves).
