Address:28F, Fountain – Signature Suites, No. 2017 Shennan East Road, Luohu Dist.
The Penthouse is one of Shenzhen’s best-kept secrets. This tastefully decorated French restaurant consists of a dining area, wine cellar, private rooms, roof-top terrace and a wine bar. Its top floor position in Shenzhen’s commercial centre means there are excellent views of the city. Thankfully, the food and service live up to the expectations generated by the setting.
The only thing that Chinese fast food has in common with its Western counterpart is that it is fast. Dishes are mainly rice, noodle and dumpling based and a meal can be had for about RMB20. There are several chains in Shenzhen and they can usually be found in busy shopping areas. This type of restaurant is a good option if you are on a budget or in a hurry.

Tairyo has to be one of the most successful Japanese restaurants in China. They have outlets all over the country. The two in Shenzhen are of the same standard as those in other cities. The menu mostly consists of items to be grilled on the hot plate but also includes sushi, sashimi and other Japanese dishes. The best deal here is the RMB150 buffet, which includes alcohol.
Address:5-6F B Zone Citic City Plaza, No. 1093 Shennan Middle Lu, Futian Dist.
On entering the softly lit multi-levelled interior of Prince’s Kitchen and perusing the three extensive menus of Western and Asian dishes one can’t help but feel a little excited. At first glance this is a sophisticated and classy joint. Unfortunately the illusion doesn’t take long to evaporate. The Western food on the menu is a poor show.
Hours:11am – 2am
Address:Shop No.118, Seaworld, Shekuo, Nanshan Dist.
No city is complete without an Irish bar and Shenzhen has McCawleys to give the city's drinkers a slice of Hibernia in Asia. This is a popular spot for Shenzhen's expats to drink, eat and watch sports events. The bar is predictably very woody and decked out with the paraphernalia of Ireland. There are two floors, a roof garden and outdoor seating.
Address:1F, Tianjun Mansion, No. 3018 Dongmen South Rd, Luohu Dist.
The recently opened Spice Circle brings Indian food for the higher end of the market to Luohu district. The menu consists of "contemporary" and "incredibly Indian" cuisine. Prices are higher than most other Indian places but the setting and service matches the cost. More importantly, the food is excellent and presented well.
Hours:11am – 1am
Address:No.2 Villa Biyu Rd., Shekou, Nanshan Dist.
Tucked away in a leafy area of quiet streets near Shekou Port, the Red Rooster is a fine bar with ample seating space, a pool table, sports channels and a secluded beer garden. They have a special on Tsingtao draught with the first large (frozen) mug costing RMB20 and each mug thereafter decreasing in price until the fifth will only set you back RMB5.
