Royal China Restaurant (Kota Kinabalu)

So on my previous food article in Bandwidth Streetpress (June Issue online here), we reviewed Royal China Restaurant, located in D'Junction building.

What we like about eating Dim Sum here is that you can be assured that they're steamingly hot and fresh, as they aren't served on the usual Dim Sum cart; it came out right from the kitchen.

These 2 dishes are the Chef's signature dishes, and they are both must-tries! The sau-nyuk is very soft, tender and juicy, but is still crunchy on the skin part. Yum!

The Paikut Wong (pork ribs) is the same too: soft, tender and juicy. But what's most important is that it's not too sweet. I'm actually not a fan of this dish (because it's too sweet for my liking), but I have to admit, even I loved the Paikut Wong here at Royal China! No joke, people! It's that good!

And if you eat these both dishes with Royal China's special green sauce called the Thai Sauce, OMG it tastes even better! So make sure you order this sauce ya!

I also loved the Sweetened and Chilled Lemon Grass Jelly (pic on the right). If you're feeling extra full after finishing the main meals, you have to order this dessert because it somehow makes you feel.. how to explain it.. light again? It doesn't make you feel bloated as before, that's for sure! A must have as well!

Hi there,

Managed to find some good food bites through your blog when i head for KK last year. Thanks for Sharing :)

Will be back to KK in Mar this year. Hoping to give Royal China a try. Is there any unique cafes in KK?

This place has the worst service ever. Food are not fresh and the people running the place (Chinese ladies) seems to be very busy except looking after their guests. Stir fried radish cake that I have to order twice and waited for 30 minutes came put like a place of gunk and somewhat burnt. This coming from a reputable brand is very disappointing.
