It's a huge restaurant and they are very fast at turning tables. There are two menues, one in chinese which you should try some of the dishes, and an extended English one. The service is great and the food is really delicious. Book ahead as they are always full.

This restaurant specialises in dim sum. The quality was very good - the wraps were delicate and fillings tasty without being too salty. The dim sum list while not extensive was sufficient. Service was courteous and efficient. An order of 9 dim sum baskets, a plate of crispy noodles with beef and a pot of Chinese tea cost all of... More

Good food with better than average service. Large place so there is always likely to be a table. Nice roast duck.

Restaurant closes at 11 and we got there at at 10:30. They let us know we needed to have orders in by 10:45. Service was attentive and quick. Food was very good.

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
