Shikumen translates as "stone gate" and is a style of housing unique to Shanghai. This arched housing blends Chinese and Western structural styles and was popular in the 40s following colonial influence. Shikumen is a gateway to the east, continuing the tradition to blend the two cultures of east and west. The food and service reflect the architecture of Shikumen's elegance, refinement, creativity and quality. Ingredients are sourced carefully to bring diners produce of the highest quality and exceptional value for money. Shikumen is especially proud of their hand-made Dim Sum selection where each special flavour depends on the ingredients, mixing, kneading and rolling. The Cheung Fun selection offers both fried and steamed dough sticks and there is a variety of Congee including the deliciously savoury Century Egg and Pork Congee.
