If in doubt, just ask. China Grill’s menu might seem a little daunting at first, but the staff are extremely knowledgeable and can provide guidance for the best dishes that will suit your taste. What’s great about the menu is that there’s something for everyone. 

It’s about quality and quantity. The large-plate items on the menu really are just that – this is a restaurant that was born in the USA, and the American-style portion sizes follow suit!   W 

Get ready to sample some seafood. As befitting any high-end Asian restaurant, China Grill excels when it comes to seafood. The jalapeño and lime cured scallops are a real highlight, as is the king scallop and lobster siew mai dim sum. 

Don’t be alarmed by the high prices. It’s often a rule that you get what you pay for when it comes to fine dining, but China Grill’s large plates offer decent value. Opt for either the Kalbi spiced barbecue short ribs or the black tea-smoked tooth fish, and the course will easily fill two stomachs. 

Leave any pretension at the door. China Grill encourages you to share your dishes with a ‘bring it out as it’s ready’ formula, rather than the rigid format of starters then mains, with everyone at the table expected to dig in. 

Prepare for the ultimate sugar rush. You really don’t want to miss out on the cheesecake lollipops, served in four flavours – strawberry, passion fruit, blueberry and lychee
