The place lives up to its name. I ate here last year and the food was also good then. In the winters the outdoor seating is super. Can't go wrong

Grabbing a casual bite with friends before heading to the Abu Dhabi grand prix. Thank you Royal China for a great Dim Sum. Love your dumplings.

We were looked after very well and this is a place I would revisit, comfortable seating, great staff and food but a place you happen to be near rather than one you travel to for the experience. Definitely worth a visit.

It definitely has dishes that are authentic to most large restaurants in China but the taste is modified to suit the international palate. The dishes i repeatedly order each time i visit include prawn cheung fung - prawns enclosed in a slimy and bland wrap topped with a soy sauce. It's the sauce that adds the flavour to the otherwise...

I have been to Royal China on weekend. It was quite as normally more popular while weekdays. We ordered server all dishes all nice presented. The staff were nice and attentive. The oolong tea we have ordered at the end was truly amazing. The tea ceremony the girl performed have wowed us.

I really enjoyed the food at this restaurant, but it helps to have somebody who can explain the menu if your not familiar with the items. Very nice place for work meetings, a little pricey, but I felt that it was worth it.

This was my second visit to this restaurant in less than three months, and considering it was also my second visit to this area in the same period, suffice to say that the first visit was an enjoyable one. Royal China is a fusion Chinese restaurant with a modern outlook at Chinese cuisine. Tastefully furnished, with options to have a... More
