Jin Sha

Four Seasons Hotel Hangzhou at West Lake’s Jin Sha serves traditional Shanghainese, Cantonese and Hangzhounese cuisine with a contemporary spin. The restaurant sources most of its ingredients locally, using free-range chicken and vegetables from nearby farms.

Jin Sha’s design allows you to watch chef Wang Yong and his team hard at work making delicate steamed dumplings, succulent crispy chicken and plenty of dishes starring local seafood. Jin Sha also serves a wide selection of tea — don’t miss the longjing green tea, which is native to Hangzhou.

Tokyo firm Spin Design Studio, which also did the interiors for Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong’s restaurant Caprice, designed the restaurant. From within the main dining space and from the private dining rooms, enjoy views of the hotel’s garden and pond. Jin Sha’s alfresco dining is lovely in the spring and fall, when temperatures are most pleasant and the trees are full of leaves
