Incredibly bad service and extremely over priced. This is clearly some sort of front.

Service was the worst I’ve experienced in any restaurants. It started with a 1.5hrs wait for food and after chasing up for numerous times within the hour, the manager admitted that they’ve misplaced our order and had no idea what we’ve ordered. Dishes finally came but we were served the same dish twice, new dishes were placed on top of dishes which we have just finished and when asked to removed the dirty dishes, we were told by the waitress to just deal it for now and she will remove it later. It was simply a jaw dropping experience given the exorbitant prices we were charged.

The food was good but portions were small, not to mention our starters eventually came last after we’ve finished everything else. Granted they were busy during Chinese new year eve but i don’t think service could have been any worse with all the other tables around us asking for their dishes and making complaints. One table even walked out after waiting for an hour to be served any food. Don’t think I’ll ever go back.

Over attentive waiters pouring wine too frequently. Seafood in lettuce wrap contained very little seafood. Main dishes were on the whole good and less MSG evident than most Chinese restaurants. One starter didn’t arrive with the others.

Very spacious and quiet with only four tables when we got there for late lunch, the service was ok. The food was a bit pricy for what it was. Overall, it was just ok.

Food here is variable but generally always good.
The service is never fabulous and it was certainly desultory this time.
We waited for our table. Then had to remind them to get it ready when the people who had been at it had left.
We waited half an hour for our cocktails, then only one arrived. Waited another 10 minutes for it to be made, apparently the order was never placed. Took ages for the food to come, had to ask for things like straws numerous times then we were asked if we had asked for spoons!
We’re used to sort of a benign neglect here, my family and I, and think it preferable to outright rudeness and meanness of the Royal China establishments consistent over a decade until we decided enough was enough.

However, this time, I had brought a guest, someone who had never been there and was so excited. So it was super embarrassing when after we requested her cocktail for the third time of asking, that she said, ‘it’s really bad’. I felt sad too. My family and I really like the food here but it’s true, we’d probably come a lot more if the service were better. I mean we normally inevitably spend over £320 with drinks so you really want better service. There was one particular guy who did try to make things a little better but it was only a little better. It did not rescue the situation.
Go for the food, the place is lovely and most of the time people aren’t rude. It just could be so much more with the right service.

I was given a choice of seating and the table I sat down at had stains and splashes up the wall. Can’t believe that’s hygienic let alone very pleasant to look at! After waiting for 10 minutes I had to ask for some water. The same applied when my guest arrived. Food was fine, not great not awful.
However they need to look at their service and clean up an increasingly tatty restaurant. Shame.....it used to be great.

Overall decent food. We particularly like the Shanghai specialities as part of the dim Sum menu. Shanghai dumplings were beautiful and juicy. Delicious mango pudding. Nice selection of teas too.

Good, if slightly overpriced and I was also disappointed that I had a Dine card that was supposed to give us 25% off and they claimed to have never heard of it...slightly strange if it came up on the list of restaurants that have signed up. Not clear exactly with whom the blame lies but one would assume they would be aware.

Had the beef ho fun with a couple of dim sum delights. I am quite a regular now as I work nearby, a couple of blocks away. The restaurant manager was kind enough to grant me a bit of a loyalty discount. All the more reason to visit again.

Ordered the sea spiced aubergine - this vegetable was braised with lotus roots, bamboo shoots, carrots and came in a lovely clay pot.
