First time here and it won't be the last. Hailing from Hong Kong, I am impressed by the authentic Cantonese food here. Here are my tips for ordering for a truely HK experience. We ordered a BBQ pork pastry; two steam rolls (cheung fun) - BBQ and beef; gluentenous rice in lotus leaf; dried bean curd roll; shanghainese style meat... More

Been coming to this busy Chinese Restaurant in Bayswater for many years. The food is very good and authentic. The staff are very busy running around and the service is quite rapid. Not a place for an intimate romantic date in my opinion but great for a large family gathering nosh up. Very good Dim Sum and also particularly like... More

This restaurant is situated next to the Queensway Tube station in London. We make it a point to have lunch here whenever we are in London. There are other branches in London e.g Baker St but this is our favorite. Decor is great, sizeable with seating for over 200. Their Dim Sum is good though rather expensive. We prefer the... More

Can't remember first time I ever visited RC...surely over 20 years ago and a frequent visitor...sadly last visit was poor and judging by the place, on a Friday night, three quarters empty which never used to be the case. The restaurant is looking old, tired and shabby. Service was poor and the food mediocre at best. New menus with pictures... More

One of the best chinese food I had in my entire life ! However the service is very bad, almost unacceptable. I will still come back but only for the food (you must have the dim sum and the crispy duck)

This is my favourite Chinese Restaurant in London. It has exquisite Chinese food such as dumplings, duck, spring rolls, crunchy shredded beef, crab and much more lovely food. The service is very good and the ambiance is wonderful. You eat in a very large room which have many tables, round for large parties and square for 1-2 people. The decorations... More

We had many dishes with king prawns, all really nice, and the honey roasted pork was also delicious. Jelly fish was not bad! We ate so well that we went back the following night.

This was my second visit to this wonderful Dim Sum spot just off Bayswater. The line formed well before 11:00, but I still made it in the first wave of hungry diners. I got a little adventuresome with the specials and ended up ordering (and eating) way too much, but it was all delicious. All in all, the best Dim... More

Extremely fresh, high quality dim sum at very reasonable prices. You can tell that they make everything from scratch here on premise. The menu is on the small side, but everything on it is extremely fresh and delightful. This is the best dim sum I have ever had, especially when taking into account the value. The atmosphere is on the... More

I went to the Royal China in Queensway to celebrate a friend's birthday on Saturday. The food was OK, and our waiter went the extra mile to make a fresh juice for us,and took his time explaining the food to us. Unfortunately, the evening was spoiled by the assisting manager (Luis) shouting and pointing his finger at one of the... More
