Best place for Chinese food in east London. Food is amazing, highly recommend to try the dim sum on weekends. The restaurant is normally crowded so you will need to get there early. My favourite dish is the cheongfun with peanut Sauce. having came from Asia, I am impressed that all the dim sum here is authentic and tasty. Of course prices are quite expensive but worth it if you want good Chinese food.

Didn't give five stars as the service is not As good maybe because the restaurant is always packed. Still recommend this place if you are in east London and need to satisfy a craving for Chinese food!

Introduced to the Canary Wharf Royal China by a group of friends. While not a restaurant that I would typically go out of the way to visit, it appears to be a very popular local haunt. The food was good, and the staff casual and generally friendly. Unfortunately no bookings were allowed, and the place was still full of people after our meal around 3:30 in a Saturday afternoon. There is a large outdoor seating space right by the river, which would be lovely during the summer.


The selection of food are your standard dimsum choices, no complaints from the group, but would've like to see something slightly unusual to attract diners coming to Canary Wharf.


Decent local, and a solid choice if you're in the area.

Horrible experience. If we had read the review from Saveen we would have spared us a bad night. The service is unattentive if not rude, the restaurant was out of napkins (on a Staurday eve?), dumplings hard, untasty, rebaked and refried. The chef signature dish, sweet and sour prawn, clearly cooked with the cheapest ingridients. So the other signature dish, chinese broccoli with ginger. We give the lowest rate to service, the lowest to food, the ratio price/quality even lower since the menu is even pretentious. The only possible plus is the location, which is lovely in Canary Wharf - but mind: dining at The Royal China will leave you so unsatisfied and disappointed which we recommend anyone to simply avoid this place.
