We used to be regulars to Shangrila for Yum-Cha but I have to say after the last experience it was quite poor. The whole place seems to be in a severe need of a clean and a refurbishment. The carpets are smelly and the bathrooms are deplorable. Even the food, which when they first opened was great, seems to be... More

A couple of months ago I rang to order takeaway and they told me "No takeaway tonight", and hung up. Foolishly ordered again last night and when we went to pick up half hour later it wasn't even ready! To top it off the food was terrible with the salt & pepper squid ready to be made into a pair...

I made a call to the restaurant trying to inquire for a table for 20 people. An old Chinese man answered the phone and when I started speaking in English he just stopped me and said "No.. no.. no.." and hung up on me. Never going to try to eat there. Please get someone to answer calls and who can... More

Family group of 24 went to this restaurant to celebrate Chinese New Year. Didn't start well as we had to ask for the table to be cleaned due to food residue from the previous meal at the tables. Also noticed food scraps on the floor under the tables. Not sure how many courses although there were supposed to be 11... More

We always choose this restaurant for Yum Cha as food is always good if you know what you are ordering, not overcrowded, no long queues as long as you book in advance then there us no problem.

We had a family Birthday celebration here so we had the banquet menu consisting of 8 courses. The food was good, however there was a mix up with the dishes brought out, the fifth dish being not on our menu. There was a long wait between the last two dishes. The staff were busy and were trying to be helpful,... More

Yum Cha at Shangrila has always been good, but we had a very unpleasant dinner experience today. Even though they showed us a " fresh" crab initially, the crab which was served to us smelt of ammonia and was slimy indicative of a dead crab. The fish served was definitely not fresh. The fish in the tank had parasites commonly... More
