Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 June 2018

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.

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.

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!

I have been to this restaurant several times, always lunch, with my family and friends, because they have great lunch deal! The food was fantastic and price is reasonable.
