New York Times rated this chain as one of the top 10 gourmet restaurants in the world
Having a Din Ti Fung near my hotel in Tianjin was a really pleasant surprise. As usual the dumplings were delicious and basically ruin you for life! This is a franchise but one that deserves all the praise it receives.

Everything centered on the style and ambiance of a traditional French Brasserie and 1920s Parisian art Deco. Every detail has been meticulously crafted, from the crystal chandeliers to the marble flooring, each an exact replica of Brasserie FLO in Paris.
My boyfriend and I were exploring the Italian Town in the afternoon. Upon deciding where to have lunch, we chanced upon Flo which was similar to the one in Maastricht. We decided to give it a try. The furniture and ambience was nice.
Food was average, not good. I feel it was overpriced for the Chinese standards of European food. Probably because of the brand name and location of the restaurant.

Went here as it was close to our hotel and we were desperate for some non Chinese food. The pizza was fine although the choices of toppings like in many other parts of China were a bit bizarre eg goats cheese and butternut squash but overall we enjoyed it.

Feast is Sheraton’s signature all-day dining restaurant featuring a tapestry of bright decoration and culinary delights from around the world.
Service was so slow that we ended up ordering Chinese next door, and it was there before anything else showed up...

Contemporary daily breakfast, lunch & dinner buffets, featuring European & Asian selections served from a large open show kitchen. Full a la carte menu available.
We were served a "Chateau Leselect" Riesling french wine priced at over 50USD a la carte menu (from Alsace region, border with Germany). This wine is supposed to be white but on the bottle it was written "Cote Rotie" that is a name of a french red wine in Burgundy. The taste was just disgusting and we returned the bottle. When we asked the German Chef, we have been told "this wine comes from Shanghai"...For this class of hotel chain, it is very surprising to discover this kind of things. Besides that the service was poor, the bottle did not come cold or in glass, opening the bottle was a real challenge.
The food basic arrived cold and not in order for everybody. The salmon steak was supposed to be with vegetables so I asked for an additional puree and then it came with a puree, so I had purees.
Plus the magic touch at the end, is the 10% tax on top of the bill.

Open daily from 10:00 am to 1:00 am, this modern Lounge on the 1st floor serves an enticing blend of Western flavors complemented by the grace of Asian service. Daily live entertainment complements the atmosphere.

I do love Pizza Bianca, but I'm disappointed their service has gone downhill. So many times their banking payment system is down and I have to leave, find cash and come back. Small issue I know, but Chinese shopping centers aren't known for an abundance of ATMs.
They are ruthless with their bringing drinks in from somewhere else rule. They just won't allow it. So don't ever stop off at Starbucks beforehand. This is a standard rule in the west but less common in China.
Food is awesome. People are friendly. Good view of the park and Theatre from the window. Tiramisu to die for.

Recently because of wishing to explore Tianjin City in real details, I was introduced to the subject restaurant by friends. The restaurant really gives anyone feelings of relax and entertainment ---- after heavy work pressure or tired tourist exodus, in my case after moving all around the city taking pictures and discovering local life.
Thanks to the hotel and restaurant management, for their taste, the restaurant offers a very serene environment, decorated with traditional air as one may only find in Tianjin.
Coming to the topic, of course, this is about the food. The cook the chefs must be from the royal kitchen, or they learned from masters of the ancient empire. Foods are prepared to suit precisely your expectation and appetite, right at that moment. Sometimes, one may wonder if the chefs are magicians realising customers' feels without needing to ask.
Not to miss clapping hands is for the services. The waiters and waitresses are trained well that one may not easily find the similar in other restaurants. Of course, the boss, Gary, is very humble. He keeps expressing the need for improvement. Fine! This will always be to customers' benefits. Keep going, Lakeview!

This is a very elegantly designed restaurant in the Ritz-Carlton hotel, Tianjin. Cool, chic décor, a sophisticated feel, delicious food and gracious service. Special mention of Ivy Shi, who would be an asset to any fine dining establishment. We enjoyed every single dish we tried: spicy cold Szechuan chicken; the barbecue platter (duck, pork loin and pork belly cubes); dan dan noodles (spicy sauce and ground pork); roast/barbecued goose; pigeon and foie gras; appetizer of greens with shredded crab; a vegetable platter of bamboo shoots, mushrooms, asparagus and boo choi. There were so many enticing choices that we dined there two nights running. We drank tea, constantly topped up; there is a selection of beers and wines too.

Staff were great! Very friendly, helpful! Very accommodating. The breakfast had a good variety for Chinese people. Would not say it was good for Western people. It had the basics like bacon and eggs etc. However the food was old and not fresh. The Sandwich was so old the lettuce was almost paper. (No moisture left) The bacon was like rubber. Not warm, not even room temperature. Anything western that was not cooked in front of you was pretty bad in terms of quality. The food needs to stay hot. Obviously the heat lamps were ineffective and they should be turned up or replaced. Also they need more quality control on some of the dishes they leave out. The sandwiches and other stuff should be replaced or thrown out more often because this is how people get sick, old food left out for a long time. And this is the Ritz, so a higher standard should be expected, since this is one of the best hotels in Tianjin.
