Royal China – Queensway, London

If you are looking for a taste of a proper Hong Kong Dim Sum, I recommend Royal China in Queensway. To get a table you will need to get there early as you cannot do a lunch booking on the weekends.

My aunt and uncle and I went for a dim sum lunch one Saturday. We got there just before 12noon and luckily we got a seat but the restaurant was already almost full up!

You order from the menu at The Royal China and there is plenty to choose from.

We had some dumplings which were all made so beautifully and you could taste that they were freshly steamed.

We had some sticky rice which is wrapped and steamed in lotus leaf.

We had some fried bits like spring rolls, which I am not usually a huge fan of, but these were cooked so well. They weren’t greasy and they were perfectly crisp on the outside and again you could taste that they were freshly cooked.

We also had some barbecued suckling pig which comes cut in squares with absolutely crisp and crunchy skin piled perfectly over squares of soft and tender meat.

And finally to end the meal we had some duck pancakes which again was lovely. A great barbecue-like taste to it.

Overall it was a great meal. I definitely recommend for a very Hong-Kongese Dim Sum.
