Since it was a while ago that we visited the Shanghai Chic, it was very much due to try their new menu, which is refreshed every couple of months to more mouthwatering delicacies. As usual, Chef de Cuisine Pele, the always smiling Fonseca and the entire crew took excellent care of us! Normally we opt for the "Tasting Menu" (small... More

We were staying at the hotel where this restaurant was based and decided to go for the tasting menu. For a fixed price we were able to have unlimited tasting sized dishes from a choice of the whole menu (starters, mains and desserts)and unlimited alcoholic drinks. Drinks were from a selection which included gin, vodka, whiskey, wine. We both think... More

Small dishes. Unusual selection. All very good. Service a little haphazard - calamari brought instead of broccoli leaves. Also service started rapidly and later we seemed to be ignored. Tasting menu is good idea.

This excellent restaurant is located inside the Moevenpick Ibn Battuta Hotel. We booked a table for 7.30 pm and finally finished eating at 11 pm, many courses later. The menu for the evening had an amazing variety of Asian and Chinese tapas style dishes, maybe a choice of 30, eat all you like for AE Dirham 188 per person or... More

Went with family to this restaurant. We were sat at a round table which was ideal for the type of restaurant and food we were having. The menu is basically a tasting menu and you get many dishes to try, which is where the round table with the "lazy susan" came in useful. The food overall was very good satisfying... More

Eat here twice with my partner while staying at the Movenpick hotel. The main option is an all you can eat menu where we kept picking dishes from the menu until we couldn't eat anymore. Food was very nice, the wasabi prawns are a must try! Overall food quality was good if not quite up with the best Chinese restaurants.... More
