Chinese

  • Royal China
A grand, charcoal-hued Far Eastern-themed dining room with bright red accents awaits diners at this high-class Chinese restaurant and London import. Jellyfish-like chandeliers hang overhead and the place does both a roaring lunch and dinner trade. The food here is fine-dining without being overly fussy nor fanciful, and the service is friendly and attentive. Order the jasmine flower tea to sip while you wait for your starters; it’s an artful creation, which springs open into a bloom once in hot water. The steamed platter of just-prepped dim sum is impeccably fresh, falling apart as you bite into the parcels of prawn and vegetable combinations. The deep-fried and wok-tossed salt and pepper squid is well-seasoned and the batter crunchy. The crispy fried aromatic duck is carved nearby, made into pancakes and then whipped over to the table – they’re the crunchiest we’ve tasted. For veggies, there are a few options, including the bok choy with garlic and stir-fried mushrooms with oyster sauce. Royal China

    Called for a reservation 8 pm Friday to be told first table would be free in three hours. Arrived 1 hour early to find it nearly empty, not unusual.

    Plasticised menu with pictures was very helpful. Starter of wasabi prawns was drowned in mayonaise, crab main was bland. Steamed sea bass main was over cooked.

    Overpriced and overrated by this year's Time Out award.

    Had a disappointing night on Chinese New Year eve. I had been told that there would be a special menu from the chef in London, which was not available when we got into the restaurant. Service was slow, waited 5 mins for food menu, 5 mins for drink menu, 10 mins for order, 10 mins for bill.....( It wasn't busy on the night)
    Food was good, but the service put me off.
