The formal atmosphere and pricing of Sir Elly’s Restaurant makes it an ideal place for small groups to meet and eat. The best tables in the house are comfortably set up for four to six people and are located near the soaring windows. The sound levels in the dining room are rarely louder than a mild hum. Larger groups can book one of six private dining rooms, all of which are designed in soft neutrals that let the stunning floor-to-ceiling views (you’ll see the Bund, the Huangpu River and Pudong) make one heck of an aesthetic statement. The marquee private dining room is Lady Laura’s, named after the wife of the real-life Sir Elly Kadoorie, founder of The Peninsula Hotel’s parent company, The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited.
