Incredible vistas are a given from the 35th floor of the Shard and this all-day restaurant and lounge doesn’t disappoint with a 360° panorama of the capital. It perennially attracts some criticism for being overpriced, but significant criticism was absent this year and most aspects of the experience are rated good to outstanding. The menu hedges its bets – although predominantly focused on ‘time-honoured Asian cuisine’, there is also a section devoted to ‘classic British gastronomy’ (plus options for breakfast and afternoon tea).

“The view’s the thing” at this 35th-floor all-day restaurant and lounge in The Shard, with 360-degree vistas over London and the Home Counties – “including from the loos!”. Some reporters also rate the “well-presented and thoughtful menu”, which they say contributes to “a fantastic experience”. Sceptics, though, reckon the “food is so-so, service patronising, the bill eye-watering: strictly for well-heeled tourists!”.

The Shangri-La’s luxuriously appointed eyrie on the 35th floor of the Shard (named after a Chinese word for ‘living room’), does win praise for its gastronomic potential, but most reports focus almost exclusively on its “excellent views” over London, 128 metres below. The other features rating mention – other than the vertiginous nature of the bill – are the memorable afternoon teas (choose from British or Oriental tea menus).

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
