Following a full refurbishment in 2011, West London's premier dim-sum haunt is back with a bang. A gold-leaf ceiling and glossy black panelling overlaid with hand-painted Chinese art give the
large, windowless space an air of luxury, enhanced by an army of waiters who are keen to please. Queues can build for the aforementioned dim sum (served until 5pm), and the extensive menu features
the likes of prawn dumplings with coriander, fried crispy spring rolls and joyous roast-pork buns. Those heading along in the evening can expect a procession of greatest hits from sesame prawn
toasts to expertly handled Peking duck with pancakes, Cantonese honey-roasted pork, crispy shredded beef or whole steamed sea bass – all delivered with aplomb.
Royal China is known for their dim sum and has several branches across London. We usually go to the one in Queensway and I’d like to say it’s because it’s their original branch, but really it’s because it’s the closest and we’re a lazy bunch. It’s popular so you’ll probably have to queue. In fact, I don’t remember a time where I didn’t have to queue. But I guess that just proves how good they are. So if you ever need somewhere to satisfy your dim sum cravings, head to Royal China. Just be prepared to wait...
