This place looks pretty run down from the outside an inside. Food is the usual "all you can eat". Nothing was extra special. We didn't get sick. We were there for Dinner. They kept adding to the food trays in very small portions of everything but rice dishes they had plenty in the trays. It gave me the impression that... More

Had lunch at the Royal Palace and really enjoyed everything about it. Just about every type of Chinese food that you could expect for lunch was available. Everything was hot and delicicious.

Let's be honest, this place looks a little sketchy on the outside but inside the food and service are great.

My husband likes this place because of the variety of fairly tasty foods to choose from (and because of the dearth of other Chinese options). The building needs a SERIOUS remodel, but at least they did recently replace the unpardonably dirty dropped ceiling tiles. So it is looking a little better... The hot and sour soup is usually pretty good.

We've eaten at Royal Palace once a month or more for 10 or more years, so obviously we like the food and the people there. There are several items there that I like a lot, the Asian green beans are really special the fried chicken is the best in town For the most part I'd say everything is good and... More

The food is ok but this place needs a good cleaning and make over in side and out. The whole place is dirty.

This place has been in Covington for at least 15 years or so. It was once an old Western Sizzlin Steak House and has been several restaurants before finally settling on a Chinese buffet. It looks completely run down on the outside, even more so on the inside, but when you have 2 choices for a Chinese buffet in this... More

Just like every other steak house that when out of business in the 80's and 90's they got fill with terrible Chinese buffets. Dirty, low scoring, and everybody eating in them should really think about their health. I was one of those people until a few months ago when this place made me open my eyes and start this tripadvisor... More

Among the variety are soups, salad items, many meat and vegetable dishes as well as steamed or fried rice and chow mien noodles The egg drop soup and fried chicken wings are exceptionally good and are my...
