This is by far the most best Cantonese restaurant we have tried in Beijing. What helped is that the executive chef from the hotel was the host and ordered the dishes. The platter of roasted pork, duck and chicken, the yellow wine chicken, the jelly fish with pickled radish, the mushroom and julienne of tofu were the starters, and we... More

SUMMER PALACE Restaurant link itself to the infamous SHANGARILA GROUP of hotels. Whenever "DIM SUMS" gets into the minds; automatically one thinks of SUMMER PALACE in SHANGRILA GROUP of hotels. However, SUMMER PALACE in China World Hotel shatters this wonderful image and reputation of SUMMER PALACE for "DIM SUMS". The restaurant has only about 6-7 tables of 4-6 sittings per... More

A friend brought me here for dinner. Service was impeccable. Food was average. Tried some dim sum, the bean paste fish, Chinese broccoli and etc. The broccoli was tasty. Perhaps have to try a few more other dishes for more surprises.

Good food and service. Among Beijing's Cantonese restaurants this is one that offers best authentic cuisine. The good chef is from Hong Kong and the taste is authentic, unlike at say Noble Court at Grand Hyatt where the food is some funny Singaporean Cantonese. The pricing is also reasonable compared with competitors. It is among the few high end hotel... More

In China many top hotels run Cantonese restaurants even in Beijing and Shanghai but many fall short in term of authentic food, I am happy that this one serves good authentic Cantonese food in the Hong Kong style, compared with the Singapore Cantonese at Noble Court Grand Hyatt. The price here is also relatively reasonable and service is good. For... 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

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 chicken-and-ginger dish I ordered arrived in a steaming bowl,... 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
