In a city whose streets are speckled with more Chinese food joints – big or small – than grocery stores, Royal China stands out thanks to the spectacular (and authentic) oriental fare it dishes out. The décor is simple and understated, and good food is clearly the cynosure here, from a heart-stopping buttery puff stuffed with sweetish minced roast pork to a crispy, greasy spring roll crammed with slightly chewy but scrumptious shreds of duck meat, plump siu mai dumplings (which are paper-thin dough pockets holding subtly spiced chicken and prawn), and chunks of fried, soft corn curd for vegetarians. For mains, prick your fork into some tender Cambodian basa flavoured with chilli oil and spring onion, or pork sautéed in yellow bean sauce (spicy and coupled with crunchy water chestnuts!) with a yeung chow fried rice or Hong Kong soya noodles if you want to skip the meat-fest – truly royal, truly Chinese.
Large variety of starters both Veg and non Veg. The Dimsum variety was good. The corn soup was just okay as the vegetables inside were a bit raw. The chicken varieties were good. And the vegetarian fried rice was tasty but the noodles were very average. Service was good. Overall a pleasing experience.
Royal China, the in-house Chinese restaurant at Westin Hotel sure knows how to treat their patrons royally. With a fantastic Chinese themed ambiance and efficient service, Royal China ranks amongst the top places in Pune for Chinese and South East Asian Cuisine. Recently I got a chance to lunch at this gorgeous place with my friends and below is a narrative of my experience. Drinks The Fresh Lime Soda Salted [Rs. 195] was the standard fare with a nice, strong buzz from the soda. Soups The Chicken Clear Soup [Rs. 250] was one of the better soups I’ve had in recent times. Good flavorsome broth with crunchy veggies and tender chicken chunks, this one ticked all the right boxes for me. #YumYum Appetizers The Fried Soft Corn Curd [Rs. 350] was a beauty on the plate, cut into diamond shaped pieces. Made with mashed sweet corn, it was extremely delicate and delicious. However the Golden Fried Prawns [Rs. 595] were slightly under and the smell was a little off-putting. The Salt & Pepper Tofu [Rs. 450], on the other hand, was extremely soft tofu cubes with accompanied by a spicy garnishment. Loved the spectrum of textures and flavors on the plate. #DeliciousDelicious Dumplings Both the Steamed Vegetable Dumplings [Rs. 295] and the Chicken Shanghai Dumplings [Rs. 350] were stars in their own rights. Lovely translucent cover with generous amount of stuffing, what else does one wish for, from a humble dumpling? #HighlyRecommended Mains The Veg. Fukien Fried Rice [Rs. 350] was steamed rice topped with soya and veggies. The veggies were well-cooked and overall the dish had good flavors. Unfortunately the Chicken in Black Pepper Sauce [Rs. 550] and King Prawns in Spicy Kung Pao Sauce [Rs. 595] were both disappointing. Loved the black pepper sauce however excessive oil at the bottom reminded me of an oil well in the Middle East. And the spicy kung pao sauce was anything but spicy. Too much Indianization of the dish, ruined the authentic flavors for me. Desserts Staying true to the core USP of the place, which is Chinese cuisine, the dessert section too had some inspired dishes on offer. The Steamed Chocolate Buns were a mesmerizing sight and elicited quite a few “oohs” and “aahs” from our table when broken into. A perfect balance of the steamed bao and the chocolate filling, this was quite the showstopper. #YumYum #HighlyRecommended A serene ambiance with an authentic feel, super professional and efficient service and delicious food, Royal China has won accolades and every Punekar’s heart.
Royal China serves authentic Chinese food bearing in mind the constantly evolving and emerging trends and tastes from around the world and have combined the traditional and contemporary elements of Cantonese cuisine. They have always made sure that all the ingredients that they use are freshly sourced ad authentic. Right from the Take Away menu that allows us to order and take away a variety of food to the ipad menu that enables diners to view images of food items from the Restaurant menu on an ipad and total their order in a simple intuitive way, Royal China also offers a good Dine in experience of food with Good Food and Drinks. Me and some of my other blogger friends were invited for a Royal Tasting at Royal China recently. And they claim, the service, food, and drinks, everything was Simply Royal and nothing else. Here’s a little sneak peek from the amazing food I tasted at this place:- Being a Non-Alcoholic, I always look for the best and taste of mocktails at every place I go, and while searching for the same I just found this beauty in menu and couldn’t resist to try my hands on this amazing drink at Royal China. Cranberry Kiss is simply a Cranberry Juice with Fresh Lime juice and mint leaves. This drinks is a perfect proof that if life gives you lemons, you can make something else than Mojitos. With a justice to the vegetables and Chinese sauces mixed within, It actually has a very serious take on its name. This Hot & Sour Soup is one of the better soups I’ve had in a long time and you know what, surprisingly this was not the only soup that tasted yummy. What I’m trying to say is Me and my friends ordered two soups and both turned two be the best of all the times we have has soups recently. Strange, This food is not more amazing than the concept it has. No offense to the taste and efforts that was taken to bring this taste, I didn’t like the taste much of this more than the I liked or rather was totally mesmerized by the concept of cutting a diamond filled with mashed corns and the melting down of it in the mouth was nothing less than a magic. Jahapanah Tussi Great ho, Tofu kabool karo. Lol, This Cinderella dish is an ideal snack for all the vegetarians. Being a hardcore non-veg lover, barely any vegan starter tends to melt my heart. And , this surprisingly did its job the best possible way, maybe the reason was the taste of salt and pepper at the first bite. This crunchy starter was a never ending goal. GOAAAAAAAAA…., Yes that’s the first word that came to my mind when I thought of it and seeing it was leading to tasting this, which ultimately caused to falling in love right there. Just one request, Making Golden and Bathing with oil are two different concepts and its not difficult to understand at all. Though I loved the taste, I’m still scared of the oil I could physically see on the coating. Embracing the authenticity of minced chicken inside, these Dumplings are certainly the best in list of Chinese Cuisine Territories of Pune. These are the madness of chicken fused in some balls that needs a magic stick (Chopsticks) to do some AbracaDaBra on your tastebuds. As I said, earlier Pepper in simple words is a spicy adventure. But what happens when it comes with chicken? Your taste buds start dancing and so do you. This is the best of all the dishes I had at Royal China and I must admit the fact that Tender Chicken with Black Pepper Sauce is a complicated love story which most of you will not understand. In simple words, Chicken in Black Pepper Sauce is BAE. Yet another Spicy Food, Damn this story is just getting hotter with every last paragraph I opt to start, This although is not much of my type of food, I can never miss Prawns. I accept Prawns in any form, by any I meant any, be it Golden, Bronze , Silver, Platinum or even dipped in some Kung Pao Sauce. Now this is the best of the Rice you’re talking about. The Veggies and Soya Sauce on top of Rice keeps the flavors of the dish at its supreme. I must not mention that one of my Blogger friend (Chetan) seemed to be totally in love with this dish and was found all over the rice till the time we started with our desserts. So, Are you saying that bun when poked gives you chocolate? That’s like a blessing in disguise. And No doubt that Royal China makes you feel blessed. This traditional bun with chocolate filled inside is nothing but a beauty to the eyes and a treat to your taste. A Yum to the Bum, I mean Bun, lol. The menu at the restaurant is also crowd-pleasing and offers plenty of choices for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians. Everything served here is also tasty and plentiful, and will cost around Rs. 2500 for two people.
we want to just eat Chinese Sizzlers and were passing the way and visited the place, want to tell you that we ordered the prawns and chicken barbecue Sizzlers and it was very good and good thing that they are having Indian food too.
I went to Royal China today at 3:00 PM to have lunch and some drinks and had such a bad experience that I had to leave in 10-15 mins. Never suggest to go as you can expect a bad service, definetly not Westin. So refrain from Business meetings and if you want to treat someone, they are capable of spoiling it as even the Reastarant Manager Bishwajeet Banarjee doesn’t seem to care. This is what happed: When I reached there I requested for a business lunch which they said is minimum for 2, while I understand, I requested the waiter Ranjit Jena to speak to Bishwajeet if he can accommodate considering I’m a Hotel resident and SPG member. He came back and said we’ll but “ make sure you don’t do this again and it’s only for this time” REALLY. Am I in a 5* Reastarant or a municipality office???? As obvious I didn’t want so much obligation for my lunch where my throat cannot swallow , I said to the waiter that just get me 2 portion of Momos, on that he started explaining that Reastarant closes at 3:30 and how we can’t do it. To this I said thanks, just get me the name of you Reastarant Manager, like I said before because Mr. Bishwajeet doesn’t care, he didn’t have a courtesy to come out and speak, so I left to report to their Director F& B Mr. Pankaj, he obviously came instantly and spoke very professionally and calmed me off ( Exact Westin Standard). So guys, take my advice and don’t attempt this place till THE SAME MANAGEMENT IS THEIR In ROYAL CHINA
