This restaurant was my favourite Cantonese in Beijing but after a few months' time I recently revisited it, and found the food standard suffered a significant decline. A simple dish, Crispy Roast Pork, has tough skin, certainly far from crispy (a must for this dish). All other dishes were below the previous standard I expected. Service personnel are novice. Previously... More

This was our reward after a tiring day under the sun. Relaxed and elegant ambience. The baby lobster and wagyu beef were scrumptious. The only thing keeping me from rating it 'excellent' is that it was difficult communicating with their waitstaff in English. Quite surprising for a Shangri-La property.

The food is very ordinary. Nothing outstanding or bad. The peking duck here is also very ordinary. Food is served all at once, meaning food are turning cold on the table before we eat them.

Apparently quite appreciated by the high end shoppers that enjoy the China World hotel, and not too many foreigners. The service is very attentive and quite to very fluent in English. The quality of the dishes is good, the cooking a solid representation of the many different cuisines. Do not go here with only one or two, unless you are... More

Stayed here only for one night back in Dec 2013, I truly loved all of the services this hotel offers: From fitness centre to laudrette. Moreover, live music by the piano is almost always available in the evening from 18-21. Certainly a great place to stay. Price range? 5-star hotel so go figure.

This is by far the most best Cantonese restaurant we have tried in Beijing. What helped is that the executive chef from the hotel was the host and ordered the dishes. The platter of roasted pork, duck and chicken, the yellow wine chicken, the jelly fish with pickled radish, the mushroom and julienne of tofu were the starters, and we... More

SUMMER PALACE Restaurant link itself to the infamous SHANGARILA GROUP of hotels. Whenever "DIM SUMS" gets into the minds; automatically one thinks of SUMMER PALACE in SHANGRILA GROUP of hotels. However, SUMMER PALACE in China World Hotel shatters this wonderful image and reputation of SUMMER PALACE for "DIM SUMS". The restaurant has only about 6-7 tables of 4-6 sittings per... More

A friend brought me here for dinner. Service was impeccable. Food was average. Tried some dim sum, the bean paste fish, Chinese broccoli and etc. The broccoli was tasty. Perhaps have to try a few more other dishes for more surprises.
