The Best Places to Eat Evening Dim Sum in London

For anyone who’s ever turned up to a Chinese restaurant to be gut-wrenchingly told that the delicious bite-size dishes aren’t served in the evening, this is for you.

As per Cantonese tradition, Dim Sum is usually only served from Noon until 5pm. But if you know where to look, you can find delicious Dim Sum (often with great cocktails) after dark in London. Here are the best restaurants serving it:

West London: Royal China, Fulham


The prestigious Royal China Group is famous for its authentic Dim Sum, but only Royal China Fulham serves it in the evening. Head Dim Sum Chef Sam Chen makes all of the dim sum fresh each day to ensure it is of the highest quality. In the evening, guests can indulge in Dim Sum platters with signature flavours such as Honey Roast Pork Puffs, Scallop Dumplings, and Fried Prawn Dumplings with Coriander.

The smallest of the group, Royal China Fulham has an intimate, friendly atmosphere perfect for its neighbourhood location.  Lunch and dinner are served in luxurious surroundings.  The restaurant has a charming outdoor terrace, perfect for al fresco dining on balmy summer evenings. Royal China Fulham is also the only restaurant in the group to offer a home delivery service.  The Royal China Group consists of six of London’s most authentic and prestigious Chinese restaurants, including the luxurious and critically-acclaimed Royal China Club.  Based in prime areas of London, the restaurants are centrally located on Baker Street, as well as Bayswater, Harrow-on-the-Hill, Canary Wharf, and of course Fulham.

If you’re looking for elsewhere then try these:

Central London: Yauatcha, Soho

North London: Yum Cha, Camden

East London: The Drunken Monkey

South London: Mama Lan’s Chinese, Brixton
