With muted decor, gentle background music and exquisitely polite service, The China Club feels a world away from Baniyas Street on the other side of the window. Featuring Peking, Szechuan and Cantonese cuisine, the menu is lengthy, but the knowledgeable staff will happily guide you through. To begin, there’s a large and tasty choice of steamed and fried dim sum – otherwise the roasted meat platter of duck, chicken and beef is a perfect appetiser for sharing – the meat succulent and tender, perfectly complemented by a light soy marinade. For mains, don’t miss the double cooked duck that’s crispy and packed full of flavour, while the black cod with spring onion and soya is delicate and melt-in-the-mouth. Well worth a visit.
