About Summer Palace
Combining South-Eastern Chinese cuisine with Cantonese flair, the Summer Palace enhances gastronomical sensations with a poetic visual dreamscape. Inspired by the traditional Chinese ink paintings in dynamic hues and commonly accented with motifs of peacocks, this vision of colors is translated into a series of dining chambers.
Guests will be greeted by a stunning 4-metre-high bronze entrance gate, followed by a full-height bronze wine library before walking into the first dining room – the Pantry Chamber. This casual, energy-charged chamber serving dim sum items features bronze screens and a stunning 9-metre-wide open kitchen that creates a theatrical effect.
Further into the Lantern Chamber, guests will be mesmerized by a ceiling adorned with over 80 intricate silk lanterns that appear to float magically. Taking centre stage is a glazed open kitchen that focuses on traditional clay pot cooking techniques. A series of lacquered panels in hues of deep orange provokes a sense of architectural modernity.
The journey through the Summer Palace continues to the Imperial Chamber for formal dining. From the bespoke pendants hand-crafted with custom-made tassels in shades of olive greens and burnt orange to the sculptural curved screens that partition the dining room into more intimate enclaves, the illustrious Imperial Chamber is fit for the Emperor in both culinary offerings and ambience.
