The atmosphere at Royal China is pleasant enough and the service was fine. The food was a mixed bag. The dumplings were succulent and spicy. The Prawn toasts were fine, nothing special, and tasted like a normal Chinese restaurant. They certainly weren't worth £7.50 for four. The baked duck for mains was juicy and flavourful, despite the skin being too... More

Over priced and rude staff. Serves shark fin soup, disgusting to see it on the menu. I walked out when I saw this.

On a street full of fast food places this is tucked away near the Queensway tube station. If you want good quality Chinese food then this is the place. Mostly Chinese eat here so that says a lot. There are queues on Saturday and Sunday so if you don't want to wait then come early. There are no bookings so... More

but I might be spoiled growing up in the San Gabriel Valley (So. California area) where Dim Sum is exceptional and inexpensive. We ate at the Queensway location. The food was quite good we ordered six dishes in addition to tea. We ordered an item off menu (steamed Chinese broccoli) and were a little surprised that it was 16USD. So... More

Ok so you have to queue. Consider why. It´s because the food is so good. They don´t take bookings and work on a first come first served basis which is as good a policy as any other. We were a group of 8 so obviously that was a little more difficult. Dum Sim, Dum Sim, Dum Sim; it´s hardly worth... More

We came here on a rainy Wednesday night, still busy, huge portions and tasty food, always reliable. The aubergine stuffed with prawns one of the highlights. You will be sure to enjoy your meal, and the waitresses have improved too!

We had the usual things like the prawn dumpling, siu mai, dumpling with chives and prawn fillings, and Chicken buns (gai bao). The food is up to the better Auckland and even Sydney standards. But the cons is it costs twice as much as in Auckland - no surprise, this is London after all. Will return if setting foot in... More

A filthy restaurant, the lavatories were shocking, overflowing bins and dirty and the food was Inedible.'heavy... More

This is my first ever review of a restaurant and I feel I need to inform people about this restaurant.....My boyfriend and I went to this restaurant today for lunch, we arrived at 13.25 and was told there would be a 30 min wait - however we ended up waiting an hour. This is because they don't take bookings, but... More

My good friend is Hong Kong Chinese and recommended Royal China at Queensway and she had good reason to. We allowed her to order for us and had an amazing selection of food that I wouldn't normally have selected from tofu in a hot pot to spicy calamari. The food is fantastic and the service phenomenal. The restaurant decor is... More
