Shanghai Baia Restaurant – CLOSED

In Chinese, Ilha de Luanda, Puxado / Upmarket $$$, Restaurants by Luanda NightlifeLeave a Comment

Shanghai Baia is a Chinese restaurants located on Ilha after Cais de Quatro restaurant. The interior of the restaurant is quite modern, and you can enjoy the beautiful view of the city over the bay.

The menu is very chinese with some very vague names and even more peculiar photos that do not particularly help. There are quite a lot of dishes in the menu, with over 70 appetizers and mains. It remineded me of the menu at Cais de Quatro, but with less variety. Prices start from 700 kwanzas for a starter to 5000 kwanzas for a lobster. It took us a very long time to finally decide on our choice of food. Some mighty fine examples of Chinglish are on offer to keep the customers amused , with the puzzling “Deep Fride Vegetarian Duck” or the somewhat amibigous “deep fride garlic Hong Kong Abderdeen style” appearing on the menu!

The service was excellent and they prepared the food extremely quickly, within 15 minutes we had our starters and main courses followed shortly. Always impressive for Luanda, even more so given that we were in a big group. The waiters were very professional and attentive. I think the food is quite adequate and authentically chinese. If you know how to navigate your way around a chinese menu you can find some superb dishes in there but even if not; most plates are nice and worth the money.
