So much food choices, you don’t know where to start. Exceptional food quality, taste and presentation. All the staff are attentive and friendly even the place is busy. Fantastic view of the river. Highly recommendable.

The restaurant has just renovated…look nicer and more comfy. We went for lunch and so impress with the variety of foods; Sushi Bar, Salad, Grill, Indian Foods etc. Staffs are friendly. Tip: Try new ice-cream counter. It’s really good.

Good dinner buffet with wide selection of international dishes. It includes seafood and meat grills located separately just outside the main dining area. I enjoyed their seafood - Alaskan crab legs, shrimps and oysters. Their lobster thermidor is excellent but you need to be alert to get your piece at they are brought out from the oven by trays to...

This is the Shangri La's mainstream restaurant. It was the end of a long day and we did not feel like venturing out. Menu offerings were designed for all tastes, thai, chinese, western so no single specialty cuisine. So everyone enjoyed something that suited, and in a nice garden riverfront setting. Prices including a meal, some wine and beer still... More

We were at a conference at the hotel recently, and had lunch a few times in this place – for convenience reasons only. OK… I admit it is a clean and modern place, with ample space for sitting inside or outside. For me… too humid to sit outside, so… inside was the obvious choice. Nice views over the river... which...
