This Chinese restaurant caters all your need weather just a quick business meeting or having a glass of wine over quick lunch. The outdoor garden is beautiful setting,too bad it's just too hot to be outdoor. Check out unlimited brunch menu every Friday and Saturday if you're dim sum lovers.

Although I'm not the greatest fan of Chinese food, I've enjoyed going to some of the good places. Royal China in New Delhi was one of them. But its namesake in Dubai was indeed disappointing

Went to this restaurant with a large group of work colleagues. They found a round table for us which was really sociable. The food was truly excellent and there is an alcohol license so we enjoyed nice wine with the meal.

A very enjoyable evening at Royal China. Best Chinese food I have had since moving to Dubai. I have found China Grill and Asia Asia have "all the gear but no idea" Food is simple and tasteful, comprehensive menu, great thought out set meals. The Duck is great, crispy shredded beef means exactly that. Good alcohol range with a crisp... More

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
