Some good, some not so good

I ate here one night while staying in the China World Hotel, and had a mixed experience. The service was good, and some of the dishes were good, and reasonably priced -- e.g., the shredded, marinated tofu with coriander (cilantro). The house red wine, from Chile, was very drinkable. However, the... read more

We dined at Summer Palace Restaurant at China World Hotel in Beijing in late March 2015. We were promptly seated at our reserved time, but service, from the beginning was rather intermittent and awkward. I am not sure why, but I am assuming that this was because it was a table for two. After some wait, we ordered the Prix... More

The Summer Palace is a very good restaurant. Located inside the China World Hotel, the Summer Palace is richly appointed and well staffed. As is often the case, the menu is quite large, but organized in a logical fashion and a special selection of "chef's recommendations" are offered to you on a separate menu. The food was excellent - so... More

The China World hotel was the first in the China World complex, so this restaurant has been here a long, long time. The décor shows its age - traditional Chinese in the eighties. Service is friendly, but not top-notch - waiters sometimes forget to remove rubbish on the floor. The food? Good, but nothing to write home about. Walk a... More

We keep going back to this restaurant because food is really delicious and service is good. Mr Wong, the manager was always available to make good suggestions on what to select. If offers dim sum at lunch and a variety of regional Chinese food, with a focus on Cantonese food. Nice place to host a business lunch as well.

staying at the hotel we tried to eat there. According to hotel overview supposed to serve food until 22:00, but arriving 21:20 we were asked to hurry as they were about to close for the day. Food was ok, but service a little left hand as they were preparing for next day's breakfast and emptying the buffet

We went to the Summer Palace for a light dim sum lunch today at around 1.30 pm. Most of the guests had left with only a few table occupied. The receptionist at the front door ushered us to a table and quickly set the table with the proper cutely, chopsticks, plates, bowls, and napkins, etc. And then we were deserted.... More

Some of the best dim sum in Beijing, and surprisingly fairly priced. The room is very Shangri-La like in style, meaning plenty of gold, and Chinese decorative touches. Service can be a bit shaky, but given the good food this is one of the more consistently good places for dim sum in town.

The complex is huge. Massive hotel, mall, conference centre etc. Just glad to be able to have some quality food in tranquility. Surprisingly, the stand-out dish we had was the Peking Duck. In comparison with the fabulous DaDong and Duck de Chine company, this duck was cut thicker, sauce more subtle and pancakes just as thin. Great job and priced... More

The Summer Palace at the China World Hotel is a so-so average restaurant helped by its location and convenience to the guests at staying at the hotel - like me. Amongst the Chinese restaurants (Summer Palace or Shang Palace) at the Shangri-la Hotel Group in China and rest of the region that I visited, this one was probably the least... More
