Shikumen – Shepherd’s Bush
Named after the traditional East-meets-West architectural style unique to Shanghai, this slick restaurant captivates guests with its modern Chinese cuisine, which combines the cooking techniques of the east and west. Shikumen’s interior echoes the luxurious feel of the rest of the four-star Dorsett Hotel, in which the restaurant is housed.
Once inside, you’ll find yourself in smart and comfortable surrounds, and discover a menu that is brimming with an array of authentic Chinese dishes made using top-quality ingredients. Every option is packed full of flavour and presented wonderfully – just as you would expect from such a creative kitchen team.
The chefs are masters of producing exquisite handmade dim sum, which is reason enough to return for more of the same. Steamed, baked and fried dishes are well executed and range from classic har gau and xiao long bao to cheung fun filled with fresh prawn. From the à la carte menu, whole sea bass with punchy ginger and spring onion, braised pork belly served with Chinese buns, and legendary roasted lamb cutlets are great choices, especially when accompanied by a delicious cocktail from the enticing list. Alternatively, opt for a cup of Chinese tea to accompany your food – whatever you order, you’ll find the perfect tipple to pair with your meal.
The attentive, knowledgeable team ensures that your every need is catered for, and service always comes with a smile. The top-notch service and affordable prices are just another string to Shikumen’s bow. Make a beeline for Shikumen and we guarantee you’ll be back for more.
