Weekend yum Cha buffet

Pretty good quality yum Cha / dim sum experience. Good service and caters for any allergies well. Only dish that wasn't good was the Cheong fun, wasn't quite smooth enough, but I am being picky here

We loved dinner here! Probably on the pricier side for Chinese food... but you're in Shangri-La so it is expected. The food was very good.

By far the best Chinese Restaurant Im into, thanks to Ms.den the waitress who took care with us during our dinner. We are not an In House guest here but the treatment is truly a five star, i would like to thanks also Richard and Liza for accommodating us even if we arrive at the restaurant late already but still...

Dinner was amazing, the food was to die for and the service was just on point. So glad we managed to get in here for one meal while I stayed there.

Not a fan of Chinese food in general but thought it might be better in Asia. The atmosphere was lovely, but after the 2 primary items I sought to order were unavailable (including a "signature" dish) I settled on a braised chicken dish which was bland and disappointing. My wife's prawn with mango salad was wonderful, but we both left... More

We had 35 guests for our wedding and the restaurant was very helpful and accommodating. Despite our numbers, the food was excellent and the staff were superbly attentive.

Food was decent but took forever to arrive. Our order was made before 7pm and arrived a little past 8. Service needs improvement, a lot of well-rehearsed lines and big smiles but no action.

They even set up a table for 2 in my room when I got it for room service. Good authentic chinese food! I love chinese... More

When we check into the Mactan Shang resort, my kids will insist on having dinner at Tea of Spring. The wait staff are amazing and they even take off menu requests. Family favorites are pan fried beef tenderloin with black pepper sauce, stir fried egg white with mixed seafood, and braised jasmine rice with assorted seafood. For an extra taste... More

Wonderful, fresh, authentic and reasonably priced Chinese fair, with decent portions to boot. The service is faultless and the ambience is typical of any high end Asian restaurant that I've been to... Well done, we will be back.
