All Shanghai 1814’s menus are designed by the Head Chef, who is from Michelin-starred Hakkasan in London’s Mayfair. The Head Chef is passionate about fusing traditional flavours with modern methods and the freshest ingredients, creating contemporary Chinese dishes that are wonderfully flavoured and artfully presented.


Signature dish: Shanghai 1814’s Peking Duck is prepared using authentic methods so that every duck is roasted to perfection.


Intense flavours and exciting ingredients are used to create memorable dishes such as roasted duck and black truffle sauce, pan-fried seabass with chilli, spring onion and soya sauce, and stir fry Mongolian beef.


The skilled and talented kitchen brigade specialise in dishes inspired by the flavours and techniques of regional cuisines; these include Beijing, Guangdong, and bold Sichuan influences.
