I note Squaremeal's review of the restaurant suggests that service has improved, but I guess all things are relative. We have been going to Royal China in Putney, on average, a couple of times a year for a decade and have always put up with the poor service because of the quality of food. Sadly, no more. At the weekend they achieved new lows. It did not start well, as we had to wait 10 minutes before being greeted and shown to our table. Further delays occurred, as only the head waitress was allowed to take food orders. A drinks order was never taken, and there was not a smile or a friendly face from any of the staff. To cap it all off, we were told at the end of the meal that they were only accepting cash (not even debit card, which is usually the case); they also over charged us by £20. It is a shame, as the food was of a generally good standard (save for the beef cheung fun), although overly expensive (£8.50 for a small portion of Chinese broccoli). Hare & Tortoise for us next time!
