Gracious and grand, Royal China is 16 floors above the city, with a splendid view of the Bahai Temple. Inside, the gold and black interiors are reminiscent of a similar place in Singapore or Hong Kong. Even the tableware is golden and royal. The best part about Royal China is the food, particularly the excellent dim sums. Whatever else you do, do not miss the fried rice: it is the most authentic in the city, and the only place where you'll get better is in the Chinese speaking world! Between Peking Duck and Deep Fried Duck, the restaurant's own signature is the latter. A witty, delicious take on the Beijing classic, it is complete with pancakes (superb) and sweet bean sauce. Steamed Chicken with Mushrooms and Green Beans is simple. Excellent, informed service and great views.

My daughter recommended Royal China to us. Hence we went there for a dinner. The ambiance and the scene outside is excellent. But whatever is the attitude of the waiters. They did not let us eat in peace. Six or seven waiters/manager visited our table more than 40 times. The cognac was served in large goblets (30 ml is hardly visible) and even before we could finish half of it six waiters pounced upon us one after the other (at 10 seconds intervals) to ask us for a refill. Once the whole of staff of the restaurant was finally convinced that we did not want refills they started pouncing again to lift the half consumed (with 15 ml still left which, i do agree, is hardly visible) glasses and we had to request them to leave them there.
It is a completely funny experience because often you find waiters non responsive in some restaurants. here waiters were jostling with each other to "serve".
Same exercise was repeated with our plates - we wanted to eat in peace. As soon as our plates were empty (with bowls still half full) they wanted to lift the plates.
OMG, I had heard that in Udipi restaurants in Mumbai they lift the saucer from your table when you lift your cup to take a sip of tea. The waiters of Royal China seemed to be imported directly from an Udipi.
