Located in Shalford, Dragon Royal offers Peking, Thai and Vietnamese cuisine, served with skill and panache in a welcoming environment that exudes Oriental authenticity. The menu offers a wide variety of dishes to suit all tastes, and set menus for two start at just £17.50. During our visit we selected the Thai chicken satay skewers (£5), spare ribs with chilli pepper and garlic (£4.80) and the vegetarian spring rolls (£3.80). We also sampled the chicken wrapped in pandam leaf, which gave it a unique and particularly exciting aroma and flavour. To accompany our appetisers we enjoyed the delicious warm sake, its distinctive flavour juxtaposing the spicy dishes perfectly. The restaurant's sizzling dishes are a feast for the senses and the sizzling fillet steak with Mandarin sauce (black pepper sauce optional) is particularly excellent value at just £7.60. There is also a wide variety of soup, seafood, poultry and meat dishes available, all of which represent superb traditional Peking, Thai and Vietnamese cooking at its very best. For adventurous diners, we recommend rounding off your meal with Mu Kwei Lu Chinese coffee. Dragon Royal also offers a ten per cent discount on all takeaway orders over £10, and provides a special Sunday buffet between noon and 3pm.
