Review on Min Jiang, Royal Garden Hotel

The much-vaunted dining room on the tenth floor of the auspiciously celeb Royal Garden Hotel has been give an awesome facelift and transformed into Min Jiang, a spectacular Chinese restaurant serving fascinating regional food.

If you can drag yourself away from the fantastic views across Kensington Gardens and the surrounding cityscapes you'll be seduced by high-gloss, high-glamour surroundings - black and white portraits on red walls, etched characters, and striking blue and white vases artfully arranged around the dining room.

Head chef Lan Chee Vooi cooked at the Goodwood Park Hotel in Singapore before taking up duties here, and his speciality is traditional Beijing duck roasted in a special wood-fired oven and carved at the table. It's a dish that comes in three stages: first the crisped-up skin in fine sugar, then the meat with pancakes and esoteric accompaniments including garlic paste, radish and tientsin cabbage, and finally a choice of special dishes with the remainder of the bird (perhaps in a salted vegetable soup with tofu).

Dim sum are an excellent daytime draw, and the remainder of the menu offers regional delights in the shape of pan-fried soft-shell crab with 'fish floss', braised pork belly in a rich sauce with Chinese buns, and hand-pulled noodles. Finish with black rice pudding and a red bean spring roll. Superior teas, sakés and wines.
