Square Meal Review of Royal China ?

This Docklands outpost of the Royal China group makes a fitting destination when disembarking from one of the modern-day clippers that whizz up and down the Thames. Imagine you’re in Hong Kong as you sit with the lunchtime crowds nibbling on highly rated dim sum – fluffy pork buns, chicken’s feet, steamed dumplings and balls, crispy rolls, glutinous rice and dinky baked custard tarts. In the evening, dip into the full menu for specialities such as deep-fried Dover sole fillet with spiced salt, braised abalone with sea cucumber, aromatic crispy duck or chicken with mango. The alfresco terrace is a big draw, or you can eat in the handsome gold-hued dining room surrounded by lacquered screens, lucky cat figurines and tanks of live lobsters; either way, service is professional – if a tad brusque.

    Over the Hype :: Royal China

    I have yet to compile a list of all the decent Chinese restaurants in London (excl Ping Pong) not sure why I never got around to doing so but as they say… a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step! My quest will begin here at Royal China and end sometime in Dec when I go back to the motherland. Now I know the horse has been beaten to death by critics and bloggers alike but for the reasons below (please see) it’s good enough for me: Locations in Queensway, Baker Street, Canary Wharf, Fulham and Harrow you can’t miss it! The defining factor for any Chinese restaurant penultimately boils down to their ability to handle dim sums and some claim these are ‘Dim Sums to die for’. The last reason is more for my own peace of mind than anything and I’d like to think I wholeheartedly trust in the judgement of my fellow bloggers on this one...

  2. Not all my meals at restaurants make the blog, I've been mainly writing about fine dining establishments, with a focus on those which provide vegetarian menu's, and those with Michelin Stars. Chain restaurants, average, bad and even decent casual meals don't usually get blogged. Today though, I had a terrific lunch at Royal China, worthy of a write up. Royal China is a group of restaurants known to me, many years ago my family visited the Queensway branch regularly. The restaurants are very popular with the Chinese community, always a good sign.One our team members at work had her last day in the office, as she was heading off on maternity leave and wanted a goodbye lunch with the team...
