Excellent Chinese Food At Shang Palace-Shangri -La Hotel

Shang Palace Restaurant
I am not a big fan of Chinese cuisine, I only go to a Chinese restaurant, if I hear good reviews about it. I had to catch up with a good friend of mine and she wanted to go to a good Chinese restaurant and that’s how I landed in Shang Palace for dinner on a Monday evening.

Shang Palace is the signature restaurant of Shangri-La hotels worldwide, offering authentic Cantonese cuisine. Located in the Level 1 of Shangri-La Hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road, Shang Palace is popular for it’s Yum Cha and it’s traditional Chinese delicacies.

The Chinese inspired decor of the restaurant looks stunning. Done up in the hues of red and beige, the place looks bright and beautiful. The Chinese accessories around the restaurant gives it a great appeal.

Their food menu is vast with a good selection of soups, appetizers, main course and desserts. Their beverage menu is impressive too, they serve some of the best wines from around the world. We loved their extensive list of exotic teas.

We started off our dinner with a glass of Malbec red wine. As my friend and I happened to be vegetarians, we only ordered the vegetarian food from the menu. Vegetarian dishes are limited, but upon request they serve dishes that are not in the menu. They have an amazing variety of seafood and meat based dishes. 

Chinese appetizers

The spicy and crunchy Spicy Bean Salad was light and fresh. 

The steamed Vegetable Chinese Dumpling had a medley of veggies. It was fragrant, savory and tasty.

We liked the fact that the Vegetable Spring Rolls were not oily. It had a nice golden color, crisp and oh-so-delicious.

Main Course 

Tofu in a black truffle sauce

Pan-fried tofu with black truffle sauce is one of their signature dishes. It had tender pieces of tofu in a delicious truffle sauce. This luxurious dish is a must-try at Shang Palace.

Sautéed honey beans and dried chilli had a delectable combination of sweet and spicy flavors. 

Yangzhou Fried Rice is a classic Chinese style wok fried rice with veggies. It had an authentic taste and went well with the 2 main course dishes.

Black sesame ice cream

Coconut and star anise panna cotta, chilled lychee soup and black sesame ice cream was the dessert that we shared between the two of us. It not only looked like a gorgeous piece of art, it tasted incredibly delicious too. 

Jasmine tea
We ended our dinner with a cup of aromatic Jasmine Tea. We loved the delicate floral taste of the jasmine tea.

The food and drinks, the service and the ambience was excellent. This is one Chinese restaurant that I won’t mind coming back again.
