The restaurant serves decent Chinese fares. However, the service is extremely slow, the setting is not mint (holes in tablecloth, tablecloth is too big and touches the ground) the staff/chef is barely willing to accommodate the clients' special requests and the portion size is not satisfactory (the servings would be considered starters in other restaurants). Overall Shang Palace is very... More

Nice restaurant, good service and the food is outstanding. The only comment I would make is that it does seem to take a while for the food to come out but when it does it is simply delicious!

The only complaint was the food was cold when it got to the table. Our first choice of wine was not available but the second choice was.... More

I don't normally write reviews unless they are good, but the food here was not up to a standard that we had hoped for. The two chicken mains we chose were so fatty/greasy that we left there feeling very unsatisfied. We also waited longer than usual for our drinks and the table next to us arrived after us and had...

This was fantastic. Food and service second to none, this is there flagship restaurant in the hotel and a must if either staying at the Shangrila or nearby. There are so many lovely dishes to chose from but we loved not just the quality of the Peking duck but the drama of it. The duck caved at your table and... More

I have visited Shang Palace many times. The food and service is always excellent. However, the Dry Seafood Clay pot is not always available. Finally, I called on Sunday Feb 19 2017 to find out if the dish is available; affirmative. Great we make a reservation and ordered the clay pot together with Deep Fried Chicken and two vegetable dishes.... More

Excellent food lunch time and at dinner. A choice of dishes that i am sure would suit every one. The Dim Sum at lunch , just excellent. The dinner menu dishes are well presented and very tasty. The tea master is brilliant as are all the other friendly and efficient staff.
