Picture of Royal China, E14 8RR

Historical version 7 of Royal China, E14 8RR (view current version)

Chinese restaurant in Canary Wharf. Notable for the very good dim sum served (a la carte) at lunchtime, which ranges from the usual tasty dumplings to more exotic dishes such as duck's tongues or chicken feet. Vegetarians and vegans are nonetheless well catered for, too.

There's seating outside, which is very popular during the summer. Service can seem a smidge slow if you're sitting outside, but if you're sitting underneath one of the trees on a summer's day, you probably won't mind. However, it can become very busy at lunchtimes at any time of the year, and booking in advance is advisable.

Slightly tricky to find; it's half-way between the two road levels of Westferry Circus, at the level of the river-bank pavement.

Their website is Flash-based and quite maddeningly awful.
