Most people enjoy dining with a view every now and again; how about a view from the 99th floor? In the skyscraper city of Shenzhen, stratospheric dining is well within your reach, if you can stomach the sky-high price tags. Here we recommend four restaurants higher than 30 floors up, guaranteed to please both gourmands and acrophiles.
1) ElbaView In Map
Located on the 99th floor of the five-star St. Regis Hotel in Kingkey 100 (the tallest building in the city and ninth tallest in the world), Elba is easily the highest restaurant in Shenzhen. Try the Caesar salad for a dose of fresh greens, chicken breast, smoked ham and two different cheeses. Desserts here come with a variety of fruity toppings, including blueberry, strawberry, and raspberry. They even put raisins in the ice cream.

2) Yunjing Xuan View In Map
Situated on the 50th floor of the Panglin Hotel, Yunjing Xuan is not only one of the finest buffets in Shenzhen, it also spins. Not terribly fast, mind you—you’ll have to wait two hours to get a complete panorama of the city—but with a full array of seafood delicacies including fresh salmon, shrimp, and lobster salad, you’ll want to stay as long as you can. Come on the weekends for the most tantalizing menu options.

3) Guomao View In Map
Guomao is another rotating restaurant, this one on the 49th floor of the International Trade Center Building, that actually lets you see all the way to Hong Kong. The most wallet-friendly option on this list, Guomao has no minimum spending limit per person if you make advance reservations, plus a 12% discount (normally a minimum 100 RMB per person plus a 10% service charge). Afternoon buffet prices are 58 RMB on weekdays and 68 RMB on weekends and holidays. Try the tender “bucket chicken”, shrimp dumplings, or the spicy pepper steamed fish.

4) 360° View In Map
360° restaurant (and bar and lounge) is a relaxing space inside the Shangri-La Hotel, very close to the train station, where service comes first. The 31st floor restaurant no longer rotates, but you can still get quite a view from its fully panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows, as the name implies. Order the seafood salad, creamy mushroom soup, or steak.
