The service at Yi Long Court is fitting of the Five-Star hotel in which it’s located (that’s The Peninsula Shanghai). Its troupe of neat and well-coiffed waiters and waitresses take orders and serve Cantonese dishes in a tight, efficient ballet. But the well-rehearsed choreography starts the moment you step off of the elevator onto the second floor, when a smiling staff member will greet you and usher you to a table. Don’t worry about a language barrier; head waiters and managers at the Shanghai restaurant boast excellent bilingual capabilities. However, you may have to repeat yourself several times if you don’t speak Mandarin. Never fear though — if they don’t understand you the first time, they won’t give up.
