Eat Like A King - At Royal China
Having just come back from China exploring Beijing (with an absolutely fantastic Quanjude restaurant established in 1864 and famous for its Peking Duck cooked to perfection) and Shanghai (with a quirky retro-style restaurant with an unforgettable name 'Memory'), it took me only a day to start craving Chinese. Hunting for state-of-art dim-sum and duck in London's China Town is is frankly a little bit of a mission. Luckily, London is home to the famous Royal China restaurants. Having been open for more than 20 years now, Royal China in Queensway was the first Royal China's establishment to be opened in London. The big and beautiful 130-seat restaurant features a stunning gold leaf ceiling, and an ornate hand-painted Chinese mural with a modern twist on the classic Royal China wave motif. There is something quirky and funky about this traditional design combined with peculiar service and the buzzing crowd of visitors coming making their way to Royal China for the famous dim-sum lunch or a fine dinner. Having visited the restaurant with Sarah on a beautiful spring evening, we indulged ourselves with the fine Chinese dining that featured the famous duck, black cod, seasonal greens and delicious fried rice.
Royal China dishes represent the best of Chinese cuisine - so whether you are a 'beginner' or a true foodie, the menu will satisfy your taste. With the dishes perfectly sized for sharing, so just like us you should probably create your own 'tasting' menu and enjoy the amazing selection - whether you go for crab meat, pork or radish dumplings. We looooved the duck, pan-fried black cod, vegetables and fried rice. Having satisfied my Chinese food cravings, I already feel like planning my next visit to Royal China. This one will be for lunch and the famous dim-sum!
