Squaremeal Review of Royal China ?

"Perfect views of the Thames" are a given at this branch of the Royal China chain, which occupies a prime site facing a wide sweep of the river: with the Thames Ferry Pier next door, they've also put the terrace to good use. The group is famed for its tip-top, "extremely well-priced" dim sum, so be ready to work your way through exemplary steamed pork and radish dumplings, stuffed beancurd rolls, honey-roast pork puffs and a splendid rice pot of spicy chicken's feet and spare ribs. At teatime, the kitchen switches to a fancier menu of Hong Kong-style food, complete with helpful photographs. Cantonese classics such as crispy aromatic duck and lobster with ginger and spring onion line up alongside lemon chicken, stir-fried Dover sole with spicy salt or stewed pork belly with preserved cabbage. "Excellent service" makes the grade too.

I have been a loyal customer to this restaurant for years now and have been here maybe 30+ times? It always seemed busy and full of life although I heartily enjoyed the more relaxing atmosphere.

    We ordered all the usuals for dim sum...

    The Food Connoisseur :: the feel good dim sum - Royal China Canary Wharf -

    It’s those morsel little delights, that touches my heart, I can eat endlessly and never got bored of it. Silken paper-thin skins, crispy golden bites with varieties of flavours, pinched and assembled by hand. Eagerly watching the waiters walk pass with steaming hot bamboo baskets and little plates to arrive at your table. Dim sum has to be my favourite feel good food I adore so much. This time I headed to Royal China by the riverside of Canary Wharf, 12pm is a bit quieter before the rush from lots of financial business people and other dinners come pouring in...
