Variety of Dim Sum. Enjoy the foods and environment. Their customer service is really good and take care of your needs. The buffet comes with 3 main courses besides the buffet dim sum. 20% discount for early birds who settle bills before cut off time which worth to have your brunch over there. Definitely will go again.

Had great Yum-Cha one day on the weekend and then on another day had a lovely dinner. Prices were very reasonable.

We spent our last dinner in Kota Kinabalu at Shang Palace. It was fancier than we expected for a resort but so was Peppino (the Italian Restaurant at the Shangri-la Tanjung Aru hotel). The Peking duck was good but not great – served with square “pancakes” instead of round, not in a steamer so they dried out quickly and with only scallions, no cucumber; the only upside is the remainder of the duck was used for duck fried rice so at least we utilized more of the full duck than typical Peking duck preparations. The fried grouper was very fresh, served whole and deboned well. The broccoli and mushrooms were in a strange sauce but were a decent vegetable side dish. The sweet and sour prawns were everyone’s favorite at the table – prawns were very large, juicy and well cleaned. Service was good, definitely the best of the 3 restaurants in the hotel. The main things that could be improved are 1) to add some nicer Malay food to the menu and 2) to be open for brunch / lunch for dim sum and noodle soup as the lunch selection at the resort was extremely limited and not great.

Unfortunately we didn't have a very good meal here, however the unfortunate experience we had was adequately resolved by the management to our complete satisfaction who went beyond what we would expect to rectify the situation

We thought that the food was unfortunately particularly bland and appeared to have been targeted towards an international taste with very little spice or taste included.

Hopefully, action will be taken to improve the experience for other guests.

This place was always empty when we used to walk by in the evenings but we thought we would give it a try because we couldn't be bothered to get a taxi into KK. I think it is always empty because the food is so so tasteless and expensive. The staff were very friendly and courteous, but the place just has no ambience and is very drab. Wish we had got a taxi instead.
