I’ve been here a couple of times mainly on special occasions and haven’t had any issues with the waitresses as they’ve always been lovely and 100% excellent service, but this time the waiter we had spoke in a rough, annoyed manner. Her accent was strong so we had to ask back/forth a couple of times so wasn’t sure if that was what annoyed her. The word I used was can we please get the banquet menu and she snapped ‘no banquet here only set menu.’ She was definitely different to the other waitresses we normally get who were friendly and gentle.

This was the second time that we had dined at Angliss Restaurant, so it was hard not to compare the two experiences. We had a traditional 3-course Christmas luncheon, which was exceptional value. The tables were beautifully decorated - white linen, crackers and Christmas themed table displays. Unfortunately there were no options with the luncheon, so whilst salmon gravlax might excite many as an entrée (and is a luxury dish), two of our dining companions did not enjoy. It is a training facility, however it was hard to see how the waiting staff were given guidance, unlike the first time we dined at Angliss Restaurant. And our waiter did require some guidance! We were disappointed that cocktails were not on offer and the "stewed" coffee and tea at the completion of luncheon was reminiscent of many budget/high volume "cafes". Minor criticisms aside, we had a delightful, great value luncheon. More

Housed on the ground level of Midcity Arcade, this venue welcomes diners with a sharp black and red exterior, giving way to whitewashed walls and dark furniture, accented with Oriental touches, creating a calming Zen ambiance.

Be tempted by a traditional Shanghai dish of Yang Chun noodles with spring onion and sesame oil, or dip a spoon into a delicious broth that has been simmering for more than 50 hours to enhance exotic flavours and textures.More

I’ve been here a couple of times mainly on special occasions and haven’t had any issues with the waitresses as they’ve always been lovely and 100% excellent service, but this time the waiter we had spoke in a rough, annoyed manner. Her accent was strong so we had to ask back/forth a couple of times so wasn’t sure if that was what annoyed her. The word I used was can we please get the banquet menu and she snapped ‘no banquet here only set menu.’ She was definitely different to the other waitresses we normally get who were friendly and gentle.
