I love the roasted duck the most. Besides, the restaurant gave you a romantic atmosphere where candles were set mainly. Too bad I wasn't with my partners

The veggie dumplings were excellent. One of the people on our table had allergies and they were very accommodating.

Excellent food & good service. A bit on the expensive side but worth every penny. Try the crispy rice dumplings with pepper icecream, simply delicious.

If budget is no concern, and Chinese haute cuisine is in the list, your place is Zhen Shanghai. This is the best Dim Sum to be had in Mexico, especially the pork buns and the vegetarian steamed dumplings. Beyond Dim Sum there is a large selection of alternatives - Just about every dish is delicious - and fortunately a good... More

After linking for 7 years in China, this was my best experience in a Chinese restaurant outside the country. The food is really authentic, the taste is amazing and very important: the service is outstanding, which already has a high standar in Mexico City. The only detail is that the restaurant is a little expensive, even for an Intercontinental hotel.... More

They were so kind and actually found a way to turn off the speakers around me (it was late and there were very few customers in the restaurant). I got the "safe" sweet and sour chicken and... More

Food is good and the ambaince is really nice. Service is also very good. But it just doesn't justify the price (and my restaurant choices aren't usually too price restricted). The food is Chinese, and I have been in many Chinese places in the world, from your local take-away to specialty restaurants, the menu having been chosen by Chinese diplomats.... More
