like the dim sum here

The ambiance here is stunning with tiffany-blue decor and it serves excellent Chinese food. I frequent the place for its dim sum. My favourites are the Char Siew Sou, Custard Bun, and Har Gau. The restaurant’s speciality, Lobster Noodle is also a worthy mention.

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.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
