The first thing you notice is the light. The hanging red ornamental lamps provide an atmosphere of intimacy that most restaurants can only dream of, creating an aura that engages from the get-go. The menu covers kilometres of Asian cuisine done properly, from faultless Japanese sushi through to excellent Chinese and Vietnamese options. There are also a good number of vegetarian and vegan dishes available. For a true taste of the Orient in an environment that backs that up and then some, Shanghai Tan is the place to go.
