    Editor’s Description

    Last updated: Mar 27, 2023
    Royal China is known both in Shanghai and London for its dim sum. It's a gawdy affair, with gold-colored pizza shapes stuck to the walls on the eight floor of a mall, but is consistently and fully packed for its roast pork and goose, steamed shrimp dumplings, coconut "snow buns", crispy duck with flour wraps, egg tarts, fried radish cake... Expect at least a 15-minute wait, and longer for parties of 4 or more. At dinner, it's a good Cantonese restaurant but decidedly less crowded.

    • Traditional Chinese yum cha, which means tea-drinking, also known as dim sum, are my favorite kind of Chinese food. The small plates of delicious dian xin get me excited just by talking about it.

      We went for lunch because I was craving them badly, and Royal China was close enough. We lined up for a bit since there was quite a crowd, which looks promising in a way. The food was pretty decent for its price. We got couple of dishes like shrimp dumplings, shaomai, deep-fired shrimp and tofu rolled, steamed tofu rolled and cream custard buns. I like the shrimp dumpling the most and remember to ask for mustard or chili. The cream custard buns was a mistake since I meant to order egg custard buns, but was delicious too.

      The service was just fine since we had to keep asking to get what we asked for, and the ambience wasn’t really nice with all the crowd talking loudly. I have to get my tea when having dim sum but the price for tea was too pricey, and it just taste like normal tea. Don’t mind going back for some quick grab but I would not recommend it with friends.
