Royal China Club
Totally different to the branch of Royal China down the road (or indeed any of the renowned small chain), Royal China Club is ‘the posh one’. Signifiers are the added gilt and glitz, the generous space, big lobster tanks and extra-special teas, while service suggests that the customer is wise in all things. You would be daft to ignore the dim sum, carefully made by a dedicated team and served with supreme elegance: it’s hard to go wrong with minced pork dumplings jazzed up with crab roe. If you want more luxe additions, they’re here at a price. Move to the carte and there are standouts including crispy seaweed with smoked fish or lamb rack with lettuce wraps – though probably not the fresh lobster baked in melted cheese. There’s so much good stuff here that it’s easy to run up a bill, but hard to begrudge it.
