DEDICATION TO AUTHENTICITY
The elegant and tranquil ambience at Shang Palace, Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta’s signature restaurant, exudes an authentic Chinese setting with magnificent views out to the hotel’s lush, landscaped gardens. Guests are hypnotized by the warm colors of maroon red, green and gold that dominate the restaurant’s interiors, giving you a strong, oriental sense of its origin. The authentic, yet semi-modern Chinese décor reflects beautifully upon Shang Palace’s imaginative chefs who prepare a wide range of Cantonese and traditional Chinese delicacies.
Executive Chinese Chef Benson Fok is the real deal. As resident creative genius behind the scenes at Shang Palace, he spent his teenage years in Hong Kong, honing the sought after skills that keep guests and visitors yearning for his authentic Cantonese culinary experience. As we are only as strong as our weakest link, Fok chose master Chinese Barbecue Chef Christopher Chai as his right hand man. A native of Malaysia, and one of the lucky people to have turned their hobby into a full-time career, Chef Chai specializes in Cantonese and Hong Kong style Chinese food, and is responsible for ensuring that diners can taste the authentic flavors of such cuisine.
House specialties include Sauteed Duck Fillet with Black Pepper Sauce, Stir Fried Shredded Duck Meat with Bean Sprout, Wok Fried Minced Duck Meat served in a lettuce cup and Dim Sum prepared by the restaurant’s exclusive Dim Sum Chef Low Kien Fatt. For an after dinner treat, Shang Palace offers an extensive menu for the tea aficionado, delighting your senses with a selection of Hua Tiao Chiew, Mou Tai and Wu Liang Ye teas.
With six private dining rooms, a romantic ballroom aptly named the Lotus Room, and general seating capacity for up to 327 guests, keep Shang Palace in mind when planning that next special celebration.
