Description: An advocate of the fragrance of Chinese culture, Shang Palace showcases Cantonese cuisine, provincial specialties and Chinese tea culture in an ambience of rich Chinese heritage. The main theme for Shang Palace's interior decor is "dining in a Chinese Garden". Floral motifs take centre stage on the red glass ceiling and exquisite hand-painted walls. Shang Palace has an illustrious 42-year history serving fine Cantonese, Shanghainese (including Huaiyang) and Szechuan cuisine in Singapore since 1971.

We visited the Rose Veranda in the Shangri-La in SIngapore on Boxing Day (26.12.2010) for High Tea.
The price for one adult is S$ 68 and for a child it is S$ 48. My son (4 years) ate for free.

They had a dient selection on food items at first glance. However, we tried the turkey; it was cold. The potatoes were cold, the baked ham was cold, the gravy was cold. The sushi selection was very limited and looked less than appetizing in a small cabinet. The salmon and tuna sashimi was either empty (not re-filled) or just slapped into the cabinet in a very inattentive way. The rest of the food selection was largely asian ffods which did not look inviting. They served for a S$ 68 buffet fried asian rice noodles which you can eat at any hawker for S$ 2.
The dessert section was also disappointing. The bread and butter pudding was Cold! The cake fell apart once you lifted it from the serving tray and the cream in the cake looked and tasted truly artificial. A really bak pastry chef!
The one and only decent food were the shrimps and oysters. I ate the shrimp and not the oysters.
The service was worse than the food. Not a single waitress ever asked whether we wanted more tea or coffee. One had to stop them to get us tea or coffee.
In the beginning they forgot my daughters chamomile tea and they also forgot the apple juice (cheap card board box variety for the price of S$10 per glass). The waitresses had to be reminded to serve us the drinks a few times.
A word about the porcelain used. The majority of plates and cups were from a no name brand. Some were from Wedgwood and the tea pots came out in different sizes, shapes and colors. It looked al thrown together without any coordination. Certainly not worthy of a 5 star hotel.

All in, I walked out with a S$240 bill for lousy food, hungry and deeply upset about my bad choice for a boxing day afternoon out with the family.
Throughout our visit we remained friendly to the staff, hoping they may ask us how everything was. Not a word from them. I filled in the comment card. I hope the responsible F&B Manager starts actually managing his F&B outlets in the hotel.
