Royal China

Squaremeal Review of Royal China ?

For a mini-chain with a strong reputation for upmarket Chinese food in premier spots such as Baker Street, Bayswater and Canary Wharf, surprisingly little fanfare surrounds this branch of Royal China. The frontage might seem humdrum, but step inside and things get suitably regal. Glossy, gold-panelled walls adorned with Chinese art point up the black-lacquered theme that runs through the polished interior. A vast menu covers pretty much everything you’d hope for, and does so with some finesse – from steamed scallop dumplings, fried roast-pork puffs, yam paste with dried meat or other highly rated daytime dim sum to a signature dish of ‘empress chicken’ with ginger and spring onion sauce. A lengthy wine list offers good choices at most price points, and the timber-framed patio is a bonus.

Dont waste your time, money and patience going to this restaurant. Lousy service, rude people and average food. Staff is incredibly rude. I have never experienced something like this. The waiter was aggressive to the point of snatching the menu of our hands and telling us to hurry up. The manager came to ask us to move our chairs (mind you we were with a 5 year old boy) because it was disturbing HER customers. So we were not her customers? She was not only rude, but was screaming at us in front of...

I have literally made a square meal account just to write this review: Complete waste of money – food was average at best. The waitress' were ALL intense and weird. It really irritates me when you spend £95.00 on disgusting food in a terrible atmosphere. Just never go there. #justsaying

Woe betide anyone who has the gall to complain to the staff about their experience at the Royal China on the Fulham road. To do so will elicit a defensive and aggressive response from the waiting staff, whose approach to customer service appears to be modeled on Faulty Towers, minus the laughs. When our shredded duck was cleared by the waitress, most of it untouched, we commented that it was dry, chewy and overcooked and, therefore not particularly pleasant. “You ate it too slow”, came the response....

A real dissapointment and waste of money. A slip in quality compared to the one in Baker St. Arent ‘chains’ meant to have similar quality dinign experience? Id go to the less convenient Putney Branch any day instead – perfect for Sunday dim sum!

    The Royal China Group definitely holds the right to claim serving some of the most authentic Chinese food in town. I’ve visited four of their branches in London and I have to say they’ve always reminded me of proper Chinese restaurants in Asia, particularly Hong Kong, Philippines and Singapore. Royal China Group’s PR peeps recently invited me and a guest (I chose good ol’ MB) to try their Fulham branch to try their evening dim sum offering. I had to say yes, because there’s not enough places in London that serve dim sum at night (Hakkasan Mayfair, Yauatcha, and Opium are good, but I think we need more!).
