While pictures paint a thousand words... but it does not describe when I experience or feel. So I always prefer to spend time to share in writing After trying out the two restaurants owned by the same group in Shanghai recently (four seasons and royal china), I organized a lunch for a group of 5. I was initially skeptical of... More

The ambience is nice, service is good, food in general is ok. The lobster noodle is grossly over rated.

Royal China is tucked away on Level 3 of Raffles Hotel. We had Dim Sum on a Sunday morning and reservations are recommended. I enjoyed the food tremendously but my friends commented that the restaurant has seen better days when even the food tasted better. My friends and i were seated in a corner, almost like a private room. We... More

The go to place for quality dim sum in Singapore - make sure that you make a booking as it gets very busy on the weekends. 2 seatings for lunch on Sunday and peking duck is a must order (if you want to try something else then order the aromatic duck instead)

Attended for dinner but did not know what to make of the restaurant when you enter and see a torn decorative mural and really tacky turquoise decor. To make it worse for such a large dinning room, we were the only patrons at 8.30 on a Friday night. Sometimes you don't know whether to run away politely excusing ourselves or... More

A nice location nestled in the Raffles Hotel. I found right from the outset the service mediocre. ..the toilets too far and closed and staff could not help...then service and flow although quick the smiles were missing. Food was good..and the desert superb. ..needs a few tweeks and it will get there...

Food is still good - the XO carrot cake, the prawn cheong fun. BUT the service is AWFUL. 2 seatings on 1 Jan lunch - 1130 to 1 pm or 1.30-3pm. We opted for the first. The day before I received a reminder call, that my lunch rsvn is from 11.30-12.45 pm, I told the staff that in my initial... More

One of the better restaurants serving Dim Sum Singapore. Must try - Roasted Pork. It comes in a very small plate; portion is small but the roast pork is one of the best you find. Service staff may give you attitude issues sometimes but if treat them well, you may be reciprocated with some attention. Price is steep here.
