Xi Shi Lounge, Shangri-La Hotel Vancouver, could be the place to go for those who are searching for a quality place to grab some food and drinks. It has a classy and intimate ambience that makes it a good choice for those who are heading out on a date or those who are out with some friends. It can also be a good family spot.

I was surprised that they cut the portion of the food for the afternoon tea to almost HALF. For a $44 afternoon tea, all we got was 2 scones, 2 tiny sandwiches and couple of very tiny cookies. I showed the pictures that I took before to the waitress and she talked to the chef and said that's the way it is now. Cut portion to HALF ! Won't recommend anyone to Xi Shi for the afternoon tea!
The afternoon tea menu is awesome. The mixture of sandwiches tea and desserts on the tea tower is always something to look forward to.
It was very grand. The live piano was too loud. I couldn't hear over my own voice. I rather enjoyed the lounge music which was soothing and more intelligible.
Such a 5 stars hotel, Cook didn't made foods from their heart, provided guest with dried sandwiches and scones dried like cookies. Besides, I have been waited for such foods for half hour.
Waitress (1052, Michelle) provided with poor service, she just leaded me a table some minutes later advised me select a tea on the menu. When food came not introduce each of the food and when I paid my bill. She has mentioned give me the change, yet she didn't, and I have been waiting and waiting until I am about to leave. She said "See you next time". Seems like nothing gonna happened.
Services not professional & that day don't have many guest in lounge.
Do you think have next time?
Poor services with poor foods that I never had in 5 starts hotel.
$46.20 of high tea is worthless!!!
Great experience for my first visit here. We received great guidance through the menu and prompt and courteous service. I'm hoping I can find the time to go back one day.
4 ladies went for high tea, and it was great! All the teas we tried were amazing and the tiered treats were great-the clotted cream is soooo good! The ambiance was nice and quiet and comfy, we didn't want to leave. Our service was great, I'm not sure of her name but she was so helpful and sweet. Will definitely be back.
Ambience was excellent. I would tone it down a bit with the music. At times it was hard to listen to our conversation.
The food and tea selection was very good. The only problem that we all found was the bread for the sandwiches, it was old.
Nice place to enjoy afternoon with my girlfriend.
Went back to the Xi Shi Lounge at Shangri La (after not having been there for a couple of years) for afternoon tea to celebrate an 80th birthday and it was as excellent as I remember. Attentive but not cloying service, excellent tea choices and wonderful savoury and sweet items. My guests were impressed and everyone enjoyed themselves.
