The Shangri-La hotel was the mainstay of five star bistro eating in CHangchun. The Max Court next door was ok, but never took it’s restaurants seriously. Then came the Jinan Hotel, a shameless Shangri-La rip-off, but good food a better price. The Sheraton opened, but its location out past Jingyuetan makes it hard to get to, and even harder to get home from. It’ took a while, but the Hyatt hotel finally opened in Changchun. Located on Renmin Dajie, near Jeifang Dalu, it’s the most conveniently positioned luxury hotel in Changchun.
The Bistro is a simple, but delicious spread. Roast beef, lamb and vegetable options may not sound too exciting, but they’re well cooked, good ingredients. The thin crust pizza’s are the best I’ve eaten in Changchun. The sushi bar has everything you need. The Chinese food looked ok, but I’m not there for that!
Vegetarians should be satisfied with the options. The mushroom pizza looked the best. There’s plenty of Chinese and Western style dishes, though my only gripe is I couldn’t find any potato dishes. The noodle bar makes fresh noodles, but its concealed in a second room.
I was too full to attack the desserts, but the ice creams looked good. I had the Lemon tart with a very good coffee.
The cost for dinner is around ¥200, with lunch being around ¥40 cheaper. There is free underground parking for 2-3 hours. We stayed a little longer, and had to pay an extra ¥10. The restaurant is on the fifth floor. For the next time you need to treat yourself to a special meal, the Hyatt is a pretty good option.
