Shanghai Terrace


I welcome you to one of Chicago’s finest restaurants, the singular Shanghai Terrace. You can expect decadent food, decor, and service here. This culinary diamond dishes Chinese Cuisine that is edible dynamite. Executive Chef Ivan Yuen’s culinary musings will leave you sighing and humming with pleasure. The food and flavors possess a beauty that is worthy of praise; excellent food is an art form. The service is world class and the restaurant is one of the city’s finest dining destinations. Prices are moderate to high but the experience is worth the expense. I invite you to tiq a peek into my tasting gallery.

The ambience of the restaurant is just as stylish as the food. The interiors are rich with red and natural brown tones. At the entrance of the restaurant there are sculptural lamps and a gallery of artwork. As a dessert-loving girl, if Shanghai Terrace were a cupcake it would be red velvet. Go and check out the sultry red interiors and elegant ambiance to confirm. Overall, Shanghai Terrace is traditional Chinese done right. The food is prepared with detail and the service is indicative of the hotel’s 5 diamond reputation.
