Dim sum is a great friends gathering food choice, you can enjoy tea and dim sum for a whole morning, and of course chatting with your friends. Travelling in Guangzhou is not so difficult except for some language problems until recently the GZ government has...had an interpretation hotline(+8620960169), which can provide great service for public affairs and government services. I used several times taking taxi and asking for directions, the interpreters are quite professional.More

As the birthpalce of Cantonese cuisine, Guangzhou is one of the culinary meccas of China. This restaurant offers a top Cantonese culinary experience at a very reasonable price. Dim sum is the specialty here. The shrimp dumplings were probably the best I have ever eaten....Also a very good location on ground floor of Canton Tower, with easy subway access.More

We were at the Canton Fair and took the metro to visit this restaurant 3 times in 5 days, the dim sum was that good. It is very easy to find, take Exit A at Canton Tower metro station and walk under the covered area...under the tower, it is beside the tea place. Staff were very helpful, not many could speak English but they tried to use translation tools to understand. The owner is called Paul and he can speak perfect English if you get stuck. Also, most of the menu has photos and all have English names, every dish that we tried was excellent. You must try the red cargo rolls, just amazing taste.More

We really enjoyed eating the typical Cantonese food here as we were exploring the Canton Tower area. The dinner was nice and flavourful and the night was beautiful. We enjoyed a feast.

There are many luxurious restaurants on the Canton Tower. But this one is easy to find under the tower. Not as expensive as the ones on the tower, but I guess the experience would be similar, expect for the view. I went there alone and...ordered five dishes. To my surprise, the clerk came and advised me to cancel two of them because that might be too much for only one person. I was really happy that they care for customers rather than making money. The dishes were really good. I had a great time having dinner there. 廣通塔上有許多高級餐廳,但如果想找間平價又實惠的,賞點點心是不錯的選擇,就在廣通塔底下,很好找。我當時一個人用餐,點了五道菜。很訝異店員來告訴我是不是刪除兩道,不然可能對一個人用餐來說太多了。很開心相對於商業利益,店員們更在乎客人的感受。在這裡點的每道菜都很好吃,我在這裡有頓很棒的晚餐!More

Great place to eat. There was one staff member who spoke English while we were there so the made our experience better. I loved the chicken feet and the sweet bread-like dough with the texture of sponge cake.(I forgot the name but have to mention...that it is worth trying). The service was excellent. I must mention that they charge an extra 2 yuans per item on the weekends.More

English speaking Manager was quickly on the spot to welcome us and sit us down explaining popular menu choices on a menu you ticked your choices. Easy to do and every dish was excellent especially the steamed red cargo rice noodle rolls full of delicious...prawns. Experience as good as a top restaurant we visited in Chinatown San Fransisco with a similar checklist menu. Popular location too right under the Canton Tower and by a tube station. Reasonable prices too.More

Shang Dian lists over 90 items on its menu. While there may be places in Guangzhou serving better dim sum, Shang Dian did not disappoint with it's fresh ingredients and competently executed dishes at pocket-friendly prices. The restaurant at Canton Tower is easily accessible by...the metro, staff members are friendly and helpful,and food comes quickly and nicely plated. We usually order the usual pau, rice rolls, har kow etc, all of which were good. We ventured to order the red cargo rice roll and it was TRULY enjoyable! Don't let the pic in their menu scare you - its way better than it looks! The har kow (prawn dumplings) were huge and had 3 springy prawns in each yummy morsel. We ate there in the late afternoon so there was no crowd, though there was a constant trickle of diners. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal there despite having to brave torrential rains and flood. .More

there were only 2 of us when we went here. Sad part is, we only ordered 4 dish (shrimp siomai, hakaw, mango sago and their famous rice roll that's color sort of maroon, choi sum veggies). Everything tasted great. Word of advice: come here on...an empty stomach and there should be at least 4 of you so you can order more!More
