With five restaurants and two lounges, Kowloon Shangri-La offers something for everyone, including families with children. Among the eateries at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel, we suggest that those traveling with kids head to Café Kool, which features food from around the globe along with some of Hong Kong’s finest desserts. The offerings are served buffet-style, ensuring that even picky eaters are bound to find something that whets the appetite. The laid-back ambiance of the large space also lets the kids run around and enjoy themselves while dining. Beyond that, since Shang Palace, Nadaman, Angelini and Tapas Bar are more upscale, we’d recommend The Lobby Lounge as an alternative, especially if your kids are slightly older. In addition to a full afternoon tea which your little princess is bound to enjoy, you’ll find some kid-friendly fare like wonton noodle soup, fresh seasonal fruit and a club sandwich along with adult entrees such as Thai seafood curry and jumbo prawns in a lemongrass sauce. And, of course, room service offers an extensive collection of dishes just for kids. Traveling en famille can be tough, especially if you’re bringing the kids all the way to Asia, but Kowloon Shangri-La at least takes the stress out of figuring out where to eat.
