Crispy roast duck and pork cubs

The pale blue décor can’t help resembles the little coveted robin blue shades of Tiffany. That was what first struck me when I walked into this elegant eatery at the colonial inspired Raffles Hotel. After settling down into our seats which were politely drawn out by a very smiley waiter, we proceeded to scan the menu. Not sure what to order, the waiter offered recommendations after sensing our hesitation. The crispy roast duck and cubes of roast pork are both flavourful with the right amount of saltiness while the dim sum har gow was a succulent package of fresh prawns wrapped in thin crystal skins.

It's good, but is it the best?

Housed in the charming and iconic 1887 colonial building that is the 5-star Raffles Hotel, Royal China is just a stone’s throw away from a few of the other famous dim sum places like Wah Lok, Lei Garden, and the newest arriving Kai Garden.

The dim sum at Royal China is good, with a fair share of hits and misses but nothing too memorable either way. Service is rather inattentive, but polite when they finally do get to you. If I were to return again, there are definitely some dishes I would make sure to order, and others that I'll make sure I don't. Here's the shortlist.

Chee Cheong Fun!

Royal China is located at level 3, Raffles Hotel. Had went there for their dimsum on Sunday morning. Surprisingly, there were many people waiting in the queue as well. They have a lot of dishes for selection. It is worth the trip down as the dim sum is really good and not that expensive despite locating in a hotel. Must try their XO carrot cake, liu sha bao, chee Cheong fun! Suggest to make booking before going down else you might not get a table.
