“Great food, great presentation”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Had two meals there - dim sum lunch and dinner. There isn't a very large selection of dim sum but what was on offer was fresh and beautifully presented. The dinner menu is very extensive with a range of prices that could have one eating at a reasonable price or really push the boat out. The dishes I had (soup, fish and vegetarian) were all delicious and portions are quite generous. The is a great range of tea and service is very personal - they brought a newspaper for me to read while waiting for the food.

“Shang Palace”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

Good food but was too big and too empty. The restaurant lacked atmosphere. Food was served very fast and didn't allow the diner to relax and enjoy the surroundings a little

“Great Chinese food and service!”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Had gone there for dining with my dad and right from the start the staff made us feel great, offering good suggestions and are very attentive to us. They even noticed small things like bringing water immediately for my dad when he started taking out pre-meal medicine (we already had tea but it's a Chinese custom not to take medicine with tea).

We ordered one set each and every dish was prepared with care and just right (both taste and presentation). It was really a delightful experience. Complimentary parking was also provided without asking. And contrary to my initial expectations, price is very comparable to other chain restaurants that were worse off in quality of food and service. I'll definitely be back!
