Good food but service can be improved

Food: dishes were nice with v fresh ingredients. However, fish and compoy congee was a tad salty with only a few slices of fish. The scallop with yam is yummy but quite oily. Waiting time was acceptable too prob cos its weekday lunch. Service: Staff displayed impatience when taking orders. When we tried to get the attention of the staff to refill water for the tea, they merely glanced at us without acknowledging us. There was no attempt to try to get their colleague to help with our request even if they were preoccupied. On the whole, may return for the food but with the service, not anytime soon.

Went for lunch and received very bad service from the staff. It was very obvious that all the staff were trying to push the job to one another, we didn't get served promptly. We expected better service

I went to Royal China last Saturday for a dim sum lunch bringing two overseas guests. I have never had such a rude experience especially coming from a General Manager of a reputable restaurant like Royal China.

Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted without a smile and upon payment, he made very rude remarks to me and my husband in front of our overseas guests in a loud tone. It is so rude that it is not worth mentioning publicly.

Having held our wedding dinner at this restaurant, we always enjoyed coming back to this place. But the recent experience with the GM has disappointed us tremendously. It is time to find a new place for dim sum lunch. Nothing spoils your day more than rude service staff.
