Review on Royal China Club
The latest addition to the eminent Royal China Group occupies the old Baker Street site that was one of their original venues (before it relocated a few doors down the road). The décor veers away from the trademark gold motifs and black lacquer of other RC outlets and goes for trendy lighting and an abundance of slatted bamboo.
Diners can look forward to food in the Royal China tradition, but with more fusion crossovers and seafood (there are glass tanks full of live creatures on display). Soft-shell crabs and crispy duck are eclipsed by specialities such as steamed white eel with orange peel, stir-fried king prawns in Dragon Well Early Spring tea, and ho-fun noodles with veal - not to mention the curious prospect of stir-fried fresh milk with bird's nest and crab roe.
Royal China has always had a reputation for peerless dim sum, and there's plenty to relish here - including lobster dumplings in yellow wine sauce, steamed sea bass rolled in ham, lamb buns and white turnip puff pastries.
The wine list takes itself pretty seriously, and the Royal China Club also has its own Tea Bar, with more than 30 varieties on offer, ranging from Green Taiping Houkui and Premium White Peony to Wuyi Shuijingui (Golden Tortoise).
