We have now been to the Louhu Dan Laurel 2X and have totally enjoyed it! But the 2nd time was the best 'cause we now knew a bit more about the logistics: They will initially place on the table (totally unasked) some small appetizers: nuts, picked something, green something else... We did not find them at all appealing or tasty--... More

Laurel Restaurant is on the fifth floor of the LouHu Shopping complex and it is the very best place to eat when on a shopping trip to Shenzhen. It is set up like a classic Chinese Dim Sum restaurant. The service is fast and the meals are fresh and tasty. The menu is written in both Chinese and English and... More

Great Peking Duck, although phone ahead to reserve one. Good wine selection. Not cheap, but good value. Excellent service and English spoken. English copy menu also.

Great food.. Best Laurel outlet. But do not expect good environment as it is at LuoHu Shopping Complex.. Expect 2-hour wait during peak hour. Try get a queue number first then do yr shopping.

This restaurant is too expansive with regard to the food quality. I live in Shenzhen for 6 months and it is easy to find a better cantonese restaurant for a cheaper price. Good only if you are in the shopping mall and dont want to go out. Ce restaurant est un peu cher par rapport a la qualité de la... More

If you find yourself in Shenzhen and want to try some great Cantonese cuisine, look no further. Laurel is simply fantastic! They have several locations throughout the city. I have visited the one at Louhu Shopping Building 5th floor and the Portofino one. The menus are the same. My favorite things to order are the Shrimp Dumplings, the Beijing Duck... More

Food here is not bad but nothing to rave about. Shrimp dumpling is crunchy but flour is not that thin. Sui mai isn't how I like it as its too spicy with pepper. It's not cheap as people are willing to pay premium. I don't recommend this place. In fact, I'd recommend Sporty Garden at King Glory as dim sum... More

I genuinely hate this place, it's over priced, the food quality is mid-core by most's standards, and it's full of snobs like the ones you see outside Starbucks all over China, playing with their iphones and ipads and pretend they speak English. Clearly, Chinese food is so much more than just the puny peking duck like the pekinese claims, while... More

I was pleased to escape the confusing frantic shopping frenzy and calmly await a free table. Mostly Chinese there which augured well for me. The choice was mind boggling. It included Duck Tongue with spicey sauce, Deep Fried Snake, Double boiled black chicken with frog's ovaries in coconut. .Wild Turtle , Shark's Fin soup etc. Good food and a great... More
