I love dimsum and the Royal China chain is pretty much the best of the best in London. Their Canary Wharf site is probably my favourite just because of the views and the fact you can sit outside on a sunny day. The dimsum itself is wonderful, perfectly steamed fat parcels of prawns and scallops. The charsiu buns were fantastic with plenty of filling and a light dough and the fried noodles are always lovely in flavour and not overly greasy.
This is the perfect lunch spot for a group of girls having a catch up. The atmosphere is buzzy and noisy with the sound of people enjoying themselves without any pretentiousness. Service is typically Chinese, in that it is brisk and functional without any subtlety or refinement. It isn't Hakkasan in style nor does it pretend to be. Instead Royal China just serves brilliant food in a lovely setting and it does this well.
