The China Club

This Old Dubai mainstay is popular with Chinese expats and does a roaring lunch trade

  • The China Club
Bathed in natural light and offering group tables or private booth seating, this popular lunch spot in Radisson Blu Deira is one of the city's most reliable Chinese eateries. The food is largely the type you'd come back for, though the deep-fried crumbed prawns ought to come with a health warning: they're caked in thick batter that somewhat stifles the flavour of the tiny crustaceans encased within. The stir-fried lobster with spring onion and ginger is cooked to perfection; the lobster tail cut into chunks and still in its shell, is well sauced and the dish is not too heavy. There are plenty of veggie dishes, such as wok-fried bean curd with Chinese pickles and the moreish stir-fried Szechuan fragrant eggplant. Don't stop there, as there are a handful of desserts vying for your attention, and the refreshing chilled coconut cream and sago pearls might just hit the spot.

    honestly, the best chinese restaurant that i have been so far to has to be this hole in the wall kind of place called "Nobel House" in imperial suites at bur dubai, on rolla street. Excellent food, great customer service and a cozy ambience. I've been to most chinese restaurants in dubai, but nothing beats the experience i have again and again at Nobel House. Not once have i been there and went, oh today the food was bad or the service was rude. Can you imagine, getting it right every single time. It's like the mcdonalds of the chinese restaurants in dubai :)

    That said, I am equally in love with china garden. I simply love the schezwan crispy beef. I keep recommending this place to all my colleagues and so far whoever have been here, they have enjoyed the food.

    This restaurant has really gone down in it's service and food. We have been there many times before and always thought it was a great Yum Cha. Last week, it was shocking - very bad service - no one came to our table to take any drinks order or even provide and tea or food. We had to get the Hostess attention so that she could ask one of the waiters to visit our table. The food was tasteless and dry, we the ordered a couple of a la carte dishes which were actually worse than the Yum Cha.

    Went to this restaurant yesterday evening with friends who had dined there a few years ago while on holiday in Dubai and who thought it was one of the best chinese meals they had at that time.

    Unfortunately, it must have gone downhill since then. The Dim Sum's were nice, the Peking Duck was good, but all five main courses were pretty terrible, when we mentioned to one of the staff about 1 dish which was partcularly bad, he looked at us with a smile and said 'Thank You for your comments' ! Everyone left terribly disappointed and we would not go back there and would not recommend it.

    We celebrate the Chinese New Year at The China Club. Thanks Time Out Dubai for the feature and for all the earlier feedback that made us decide to go there.

    We almost love all the food but the manner of serving was different from what we expect. There was 1 dish we didn't particularly like but the rest were amazing! Love the duck, love their wrap, love the dimsum & siomai, and the service was not perfect but the point that they are always smiling when they get near you is superb.
