Royal East Restaurant Review

: This longstanding, comfortable Chinese, Thai and Malaysian restaurant dishes up some of the most reliable food to be found outside of Chinatown. Although Hunan-Szechuan fare is available, the emphasis is on authentic Hong Kong-style recipes, particularly seafood. We like the crispy, aromatic squab, sweet corn with minced chicken soup, Kurma lamb and Peking duck. Be sure to ask your server about off-menu vegetable dishes, like pea pod stems and watercress. Lollipop shrimp is served with a sweet Thai dipping sauce, while tofu items are naturally sweetened with fruit like mango and pineapple chunks. Sip on a virgin Moscow Mule (no alcohol is served here) paired with marinated satay beef skewers that are as tender and juicy as the spicy Szechuan beef. For lighter fare, try the steamed whole grey sole, Malaysian curry fish filet or sliced pork with black mushrooms in a tasty black bean sauce.
