“Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

You have to go for lunch on Saturdays or Sundays! They have dumplings and dim sum buffet!

You need to be clear about the sizes you order! If you don't mention it they will give the size to share good for the amount of people on the table!


The barbecue pork in honey sauce is amazing!!!

“Excellent Food, Amazing Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

The food was really great. The serving sizes were okay, enough for you to taste the food and something extra. The ambiance was great. We were in a private room and I cannot say anything bad about the service. It was simply divine. The waiters waited for you all the time and they served the food promptly. Although the price is a little on the high side, it was well worth it!

“VERY big portions”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

Summer Palace is the Chinese Restaurant in the Edsa Shangri-la Hotel. Portions are HUGE. Be aware that like everywhere in the Philippines the concept of a "Starter" or "Appetizer" does not exist - despite them being on the menu. They are the same size (or bigger) than main courses and will arrive randomly - ie either at the same time or AFTER your main course.

I found the quality of food varied quite a bit with some dishes quite heavy on the (artificial) sauces. Especially I found the pancakes served with the duck very thick and tough. Nice enough for a once off but nothing to rave about.

“Not your usual Chinese dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

We didn't have the food we usually order from Chinese restaurants but instead had a 5-course meal which is light and yet filling:
Appetizer: crispy beef, hakao, soft-shell crab
Soup: fish lip
Main Course: steamed spinach, groupa
cooked 2 ways - steamed and fried
Dessert: assorted tropical fruits

Yummy!

“Excellent Chinese food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

I'm usually not too keen on eating in hotels. Food tends to be bland and over-priced. But our family decided to eat there for my dad's birthday. I was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. Everything we ordered was delicious. Soup, appetizers, entrees, noodles, rice - we enjoyed every bit of it. The food is a bit pricey, since it was a hotel restaurant, but the quality of the food was worth it. Would definitely recommend it!
