Londonist popped round to Royal China yesterday afternoon to sample their dim sum (served noon to 5pm daily) and really wouldn’t mind doing so again. We loved nibbling our way through a table full of yummy dumplings and other bite-sized Chinese specialities in this swanky spread of a dining space.
One of the great things about dim sum is the noncommittal attitude the diner is allowed toward the food. Take a bite of something you didn’t care for all that much? Just move on to the next tasty morsel. Luckily, we very deeply cared for everything that Royal China had to offer us. In particular, the sesame paper prawn roll and glutinous rice steamed in lotus leaf elicited strong feelings of satisfaction. We sincerely appreciated the gratuitous tastiness of Royal China’s deep fried prawn dumpling in salad sauce as well.
With all dim sums clocking in at £4.20 or under (most dishes seem to be priced at £2.65), Royal China, at 24-26 Baker Street, W1U 7AB, is certainly worth a visit. Check the Royal China website for more dim sum details.
