Me and my best friend constantly crave good Chinese food. Having been to Royal China in London, I had to check out their branch in Dubai for the first time so we headed there for a casual catch up lunch.


Restaurant name and location: Royal China, DIFC.

Cuisine: Chinese

Atmosphere: I came on a weekday when most offices were closed for Eid but by 1 30pm, the restaurant was slightly full.

What they say:

Authentic Chinese restaurant, located in the heart of DIFC Dubai, renowned for our dim sum and speciality teas, as well as our large private dining room.


What to order:

Crispy shredded beef served in Bird’s nest (this was perfection, crispy and a tangy spice)

Sweet & sour chicken (one of the best sweet and sour chicken I’ve had.)

Prawn & chive dumplings

Vegetable dumplings


Service: Great – the servers & manager were just super lovely.


What I loved:

-They have a Dim Sum menu that comes with the normal menu. If you’re a dim sum fan like me, this is a dream.

-They have lots of vegetarian options – so don’t worry if you don’t eat meat.

-Vast menu – There were more things I wanted than didn’t want.

-You have an option of Chopsticks or a fork & knife. Love when Asian restaurants do that!

-Just really good Chinese food.


Bill for two: 350AED
