This was always a great place to eat. Decor to die for, and a lounge area to suit everyone. Staff and food was a marvel! However, I would like to keep you all updated. I firmly believe this restaurant has sadly now closed. If anyone knows different please share. Thanks.

We did find it very expensive though, think it is the price of the drinks more than the food. We had 3 starters 5 mains, kids shared one and 2 moo cow... More

Always good standard with friendly service. We had the Banquet C option which was very nice. Decent selection of wines, including a nice inexpensive Pinot Grigio.

Visited Shanghai Palace last weekend with my friends for a meal. We ordered a variety of starters to put in the middle & share. They were presented beautifully!! We then asked for break as the starters were so filling! Our mains arrived, and again we put a few in the middle to share. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere... More

Four of us went to the Shanghai Palace for a celebratory meal. We were welcomed in a pleasant & friendly manner, shown to out table and given menus, our drinks order was taken & arrived shortly after. The menu has a great selection of dishes, the decorations were very nice & everywhere was very clean. After selecting our dishes, we... More

We visited this restaurant for my wifes birthday on 7/5. The "welcome" was questionable and we then waited a while watching the staff pass by before being asked "ok". I took this as an instruction to order so we did. First out was the spare ribs starter, it was almost thrown at us and there was certainly no service with... More

Celebrating husbands 50th at the Shanghai Palace and I have to say they did us proud considering they were so busy. Took a while to get all of our party of 20 fed but that's offset by the fact that everything is cooked from fresh, no soggy spring rolls here! Lovely food, surroundings and atmosphere. Highly recommend a visit, so... More
