Shanghai Terrace

Voted the number one "Chinese Restaurant in Chicago" by Zagat Survey, Shanghai Terrace offers Cantonese delicacies amidst a 1930s supper club décor, or outside on The Terrace with spectacular skyline views and cocktails.

Step into the seductive setting of the restaurant and savour distinctive cuisine, consistently honoured with the AAA Four Diamond Award. With Chef de Cuisine Elmo Han at the helm, the menu encompasses a magnificent blend of traditional dishes and creative rendition of classics. At lunch, bamboo baskets of freshly steamed dim sum contain favourites such as barbecue pork buns, Peking Duck and shrimp and chive dumplings. The elegant nouveau interior at Shanghai Terrace blends wood chevrons, elegant furniture and walls adorned with Chinese silkscreen paintings. The piece de resistance is the restaurant’s spacious terrace, which at night is lit by the glittering lights of the Chicago skyline. On finer evenings, Chicagoans and visitors alike flock here to indulge in an array of exquisite cocktails and innovative small bites. In the months of May through October, weather permitting, Shanghai Terrace opens its doors to an outdoor dining venue called The Terrace.For corporate events, wedding engagements or private celebrations, look no further than Shanghai Terrace, one of Chicago’s most acclaimed restaurants. Shanghai Terrace’s private dining room seats up to 30 guests in semi privacy with an Asian-inspired menu.
