Soaring straight to the top of London’s skyscraper charts (just behind Duck & Waffle and Sushisamba), Ting by Shangri-La occupies Level 35 of The Shard. The minimalist decor is plush but plain, with gently oriental-themed furniture and wall hangings leaving the impressive cross-city views to do the talking. The skyline is a good match for a cosmopolitan menu that uses seasonal British ingredients in pan-European dishes, many sprinkled with bright Asian flavours in a nod to the hotel’s Far East heritage. Plump, succulent scallops come prettily served with edible flowers on a creamy carrot purée that’s lifted by ginger, mandarin and coriander, while meaty halibut responds well to the teriyaki treatment – although a robustly flavoured yet delicate rib-eye steak with truffle jus provided the standout when we visited. Off -the-wall wine matches from the charismatic sommelier also make a big impression. In short, Ting is slick, sexy and safe, with flavours and views to match.
