“Stunning views… but overpriced” is the predictable trade-off at this elevated – in both senses – Chinese perch on the 33rd floor of the Shard. “The food is good but not great” while “the location and views are truly amazing” – so a visit can represent “good value for a special occasion”. Perhaps the best tactic is to “stick to the set menus – it gets very expensive beyond them” – and the “fantastic cocktails”.

“Fabulous view”“fittingly sky-high prices”: that’s the familiar trade off on the 33rd floor of the Shard, which nobody would deny is “a truly exceptional location”, but where other aspects of the experience are sharply divisive. There are those who feel “this is a real luxury treat” and who praise its “high-end Chinese dishes”, but a worrying proportion of reports feel the trip is “not really worth the money spent”, and dismiss “pretentious” cooking, “but with an extra-big price tag”.

“On the 33rd-floor the views over London are spectacular” as you’d expect of this dramatically-located dining room – the Shard’s most commented-on destination – which won more consistent praise this year for its “exciting and delicious” Chinese cuisine under chef Sifu Fei Wang. On the downside, it can still be “let down a little by the service”, but there’s only really one major complaint here: that it’s still “grossly overpriced”.
