Food, Restaurants, Cafes:

Nothing ever really tastes the same when you are nestled comfortably within the palace compound that once served as the respite for the Qing Dynasty Court. The rustically appointed traditional Chinese restaurant at Aman Summer Palace shakes things up with its menu of imperial dishes and forgotten delicacies of northern China, the Cantonese dishes. The menu is vast and everything dishes are crafted using best ingredients of high quality. However, the expertly prepared and served up table-side, Pecking Duck can always be counted on for excellent taste and solid service.
