“Mostly fabulous food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

Staff here are mainly very attentive and the food was delicious. We had beggars chicken one night which you need to pre order, but it was well worth it. My only negative comment was one night they didn't bring the rice we asked for, despite asking several times. And a couple of dishes we chose were not inspiring, but we did eat here 4 times, which proves this was a great option for us.

Ate here while staying at the Amanfayun (they provided a car to transport us to/from the FS). We had an excellent meal with very good service. I can't remember all of the dishes but the crispy skin chicken was superb, as was the pyramid pork. What was amazing was a pudding described in English as a 'cream pudding', which when it arrived was in fact the most delicious Longjing tea creme brûlée. I would highly recommend Jin Sha.

“Simply amazing...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

We went there with some friends based in Hangzhou. They claim this is the best Chinese Food Restaurant in Hangzhou.
The food was excellent for both taste and presentation.
The Pork Pyramid and the Thai Style Prawns Soup (a bit spicy but unforgettable) were the two best dishes I tried and I sponsor them a lot.
The location is gorgeous. It's along the lake, in city centre, but garden is so big that you feel almost isolated...
Go and get amazed...

“Above expectation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

I was expecting something good - not special. Hence the title.

Dishes were innovative with use of western ingredients that mixed well with the Chinese food.

In terms of value for money I still prefer the Shangrila's chinese restaurant.

Jinsha is more expensive but worth it.

“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

We were staying at the Four Seasons so it was easy to dine here. They lost our reservations but accommodated us. The view would be great but it was dark. The wine list was expensive, I had a cocktail instead. The service was good. Very professional but not necessarily helpful or friendly. I think perhaps our waiter was not comfortable with his pretty good English, which is understandable. We know a lot about Chinese food and did not need guidance. We shared a duck dish, a beef dish, and some very excellent spicy green beans. The food was fresh, flavorful and delicious. I don't remember it being out of line expensive. I would return and recommend. Very quality food.
