The dress code at Four Seasons Hotel Hangzhou at West Lake’s Jin Sha is smart casual. In addition to hotel guests, the restaurant is popular with nearby office workers and groups of business folk holding lunch meetings, so it’s not uncommon to see some visitors in shorts while others might be in a full suit. You shouldn’t feel pressured to dress formally to dine at Jin Sha. Those who eat in the restaurant during the weekends will see it revert to a more casual scene, as families with children come for dim sum. While we wouldn’t recommend dining at the Hangzhou restaurant in a robe and slippers, it would be acceptable to sit on the terrace in a pair of shorts and a polo shirt and enjoy a cup of locally harvested longjing tea alongside dishes like steamed vegetable dumplings and honey barbecue pork.
