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.

Dim sum lunch at Shang Palace is best enjoyed at a leisurely pace and that's exactly what we did one lazy afternoon. And we had such a relaxing and enjoyable time that we adjourned to the Lobby Court after lunch.

The quality of dim sum was good, with bites of fresh prawns, meat and ingredients inside. Steamed dim sum items were not oily and fried items were crisp without the usual trace of oil pooling beneath them. To soak up whatever oil there was, the fried items were served over a thin slice of egg dough. Most other restaurants would have served them on a paper dolly.

Service staff was attentive. As some dim sum items were served in smaller portions and there were 5 of us present, the staff adjusted the serving portions accordingly. That was thoughtful and appreciated.

At the end of lunch, we felt comfortable and still had appetite for pastries and coffee at Lobby Court outside.

We hosted a dinner for about 10 guests last week. While the service was impeccable, the food was only average. I can probably find the same standard of food for a fraction of the price charged by the Shang. For e.g. the roast chicken meat was tough and dry. The fried rice was not tasty at all and one guest commented that it was not fragrant.

The menu at Shang Palace is a little daunting as it is so expansive, but all your favourites are there and there are helpful guides to plentiful unique signature dishes to try at very accessible prices. There are plentiful side rooms to have a more private family-style dinner or party event. The service was quietly attentive and spot on. A great meal. Prices are not over the top for international standards making the venue always worth considering

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.
