Royal China (Baker St)

I ate there for lunch on a saturday with my husband on the recommendation of a chinese friend. I have lived in Beijing myself for more than three years and I am quite fussy about service. This restaurant was my best experience outside of China in terms of the food it serves. The service was impeccable (which is not a chinese feature I must say) and the food was just subtle and perfect. We werent' rushed even tough the restaurant was packed and I had this feeling that the waitresses were reading our mind as they were so attentive and proactive without being intrusive. It was a nice mixed crowd made up of family, trendy people as well as a lot of chinese which is so important. And a lot of americans too actually, it must be on a guide somewhere...I would recommend this restaurant without the shadow of a doubt for the place in itself, the food of course as well as the service. I will try soon the Canary Wharf Branch on a week day for Kao Ya and hope that it will measure up to the standards of Baker Street.
