“Great yum cha”
Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

I was led to believe that this was a yum cha buffet. It wasn't but no problems. It isn't your traditional yum cha format -i.e. Noisy, trolleys of food being shunted around. You order from the menu and it gets delivered. The food is really good but was hoping for something a little more authentic. For example some of the dishes are a little sweeter than they should be but they are still really, really good none the less. Tried much of the old favourite canto yum cha items: chicken feet, bbq pork buns, siu mai, ha gao, taro puff. Even had some of the old favourite shanghai style xiao long bao(check my photos). Everything was extremely tasty and we were very impressed with the food. The service was great too. Always topping up our tea pot, changing our plates and taking away the empty longs. Now, the most memorable part of this experience was the atmosphere. This place oozes class. Rightfully so, too. Being in arguably the most refined hotel in makati. I recommend this place for Sunday yum cha!

“Great taro puffs!”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

Shang Palace makes the best taro puffs! We also ordered other types of dimsum, braised E-fu noodles, and steamed lapu-lapu. A bit on the pricey side - around P1,500 to P2,000 per person - but definitely worth it.

“Shimmery elegant restaurant at shangrila hotel in makati”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Walking in to this beautifully designed restaurant lures you in with ease. But as a vegetarian my main entree which was braised mixed vegetables was less than my high expectation. The brown sauce did not offer more spice and the vegetables, mostly mushrooms, bland. I did love the vegetarian wonton soup, even my carnivore hubby loved it! He ordered crispy fried chicken which he consumed satisfactorily. I love the ambiance, the service a bit slow and at times, hard to understand.

“Okay, but not up to expectations”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Stayed at the Shangri La before we came to Amanpulo and while the hotel was as good as one would expect of the group, we were really disappointed with the Shang Palace. Despite the restaurant being fairly empty and having a booking, we were made to wait ages and when we were finally seated the service was slow and barely polite. The food was reasonable, although odd the Peking Duck not done in the traditional way. All in all, we wouldn't eat here again.
