Shanghai Tang

Lonely Planet review

Shanghai Tang has reopened in a four-floor ‘mansion’ near its old address. If you fancy a cheongsam (a body-hugging Chinese dress for women) with a modern twist, a Chinese-style clutch or a lime-green mandarin jacket, this is the place to go. Custom tailoring is available; it takes two weeks to a month and requires a fitting. Shanghai Tang also stocks a range of lifestyle objects – cushions, picture frames, teapots, even mah-jong tile sets, designed in a modern chinoiserie style.
