Royal China DIFC Dim Sum Brunch | The Luxe Diary Review

Steamed Dim Sum platter

Royal China Dubai, the city’s award-winning Chinese restaurant located in the heart of the DIFC, has delighted us with its renewed, mouth-watering Dim Sum Brunch that now features even more delicious items.

At The Luxe Diary, a little Asian travel is a one of our special luxuries with many precious family moments spent in South East Asian capitals tucking into delicious dim sum washed down with jasmine tea. And our recent visit to Royal China Dubai was no exception to our experiences – only we were able to experience it right here in the heart of Dubai, in the DIFC, casually over the weekend. 

We love Royal China’s chintzy traditional Chinese inspired interior design with its tasteful modern twists. The deep red velvet upholstery and dark wood dividers create a balanced atmosphere. The sound of pleasant weekend beats echo gently around the room. There are a few families with well behaved young children as well as groups of friends enjoying this version of a great weekend tradition. The atmosphere is both sophisticated and relaxed.

Prawn DumplingThe extensive selection of fried, steamed, vegetarian or gluten free dumplings, offers the perfect balance between a light breakfast and hearty lunch. Each piece is delicately prepared with the freshest of ingredients to yield full-hearted flavours that promise to tantalize patrons’ taste buds. 

Scallops Dumpling

Particular favourites include the prawn and chive dumplings – super tangy and authentic and so good we had to reorder these twice. The fried minced squid balls were also a favourite and a Royal China signature dish. The Vietnamese spring rolls were note worthy, fresh and crispy. The pan fried gyozas were also a hit and we went as far as to try the chicken feet – the sauce was delicious. Traditional scallop and shrimp dumplings were ordered and reordered as was the prawn cheung fun.

Desserts that we enjoyed included the chilled tapioca in coconut soup and the black sesame dumplings in peanut crumbs – and last but not least the steamed egg custard buns featured below.

Having established itself at the forefront of Dubai’s brunch scene, the Dim Sum Brunch is a relaxed and refreshing alternative to the regular buffet offering for guests to experience the finest and most authentic Dim Sum in the UAE. Whether with family or friends, Royal China is the perfect venue for an immersive Cantonese gourmet experience in the heart of the vibrant DIFC.  

The Royal China Dubai Dim Sum Brunch is, by our account, a fantastic way to spend a Friday or a Saturday lunch time.
