“Chinatown elegance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Good food, excellent service, reasonably priced restaurant situated within The Shanghai Mansion Hotel. The menu was mostly Thai food but there was plenty of choice for the majority of palates. A live jazz bad played some nights and created a relaxed and chilled out atmosphere. There was no rush from the staff for guests to finish their meal, so we were able to linger over our food and were able to soak up the atmosphere and ambience of old Chinatown.

“Do breakfast and skip the cocktails”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

We had breakfast here as part of our hotel package and it was delicious, with particularly good omelettes.
However we went one evening for cocktails and - while the jazz was wonderful - the cocktails were a big fail. The grapefruit one was horribly sweet, the port wine one had no port and the passion fruit one was undrinkably sour. Go to watch the jazz, but order a beer!

“Go for the band”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Loved the Chinese Swing Band in the Shanghai Mansion's Cotton Club restaurant! Food was good too. And the house cocktails - particularly the spicy ones....

“Great atmosphere and music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

When the elderly Asian gentlemen stepped up to their instruments I was unsure what to expect, all I can say is wow.
Something that surely must be heard, words cannot fully express how impressed I was. And they play every night! The drinks were phenomenal and were still looking for somewhere that makes blue Hawaiians like cotton but have found none even close, absolutely no complaints about the food and the staff were great.
