Lunchtime at the gilded dining room of Royal China's eastern outpost is a lively affair, with Chinese diners and office workers scoffing their way through platefuls of dim sum. The long list runs from steamed chicken's feet through endless dumplings, deep-fried rolls, puffs, balls and buns to dinky desserts of baked egg tarts or chilled mango pudding. In the evening there's an equally extensive menu to peruse, with chicken, duck, pork and beef stir-fries mostly hovering around the £10 mark, and a set menu for £30. Lucky cat figurines greet you as you enter and lobsters lurk in their tank, ready to be fished out, sizzled and served. Service is courteous and pleasantly professional, while a long line of ice buckets invites chilled wines; alternatively, take a celebratory bottle out onto the gorgeous riverside terrace.
