Royal by name, and regal by design, this Asian hotspot fuses the cool, laid back vibe of DIFC dining with the traditional ruby hues of the Orient. Whether it’s a relaxed dim sum dinner with friends, or a group banquet that tickles your fancy, this new-to-town outpost of the international big-hitting restaurant chain, already a staple in Singapore, London, and of course China, never disappoints. The menu is as broad as the knowledge of the staff while the rich decor envelopes diners with its traditional architecture and dramatic landscape from the moment they walk through the doors. Don’t leave without trying at least one of their many perfect prawn dishes, and you’d be mad not to finish with the black sesame paste in peanut crumbs. There’s so much to enjoy, the world, or this little slice of DIFC, at least, is your oyster.
