Ting Restaurant in The Shard
The Ting restaurant is definitely one of the top choices to if you like fancy restaurants with a stunning view. It is located in The Shard, 128 metres above the city of London. With its 310 metres, The Shard is the highest skyscraper in London and also the tallest building in the European Union. So I guess you can imagine the view that comes with a dining experience there! Whilst the ‘exterior’ therefore is certainly worth it, also the interior of the Ting restaurant is simply stunning. The restaurant has a very stylish modern Asian flair and a lot of attention to detail was paid when designing this place.
The menu is not that big but every dish sounds super yummy and it was quite hard to make a choice. I went for the Jerusalem Artichoke Soup with chestnuts and truffles as a starter, the Monkfish with razor clams, cauliflower, miso as a main and the Praline with a hazelnut sponge, milk chocolate and lemon as a dessert. Afterwards we had dessert wine and were served very delicious pralines. The food and the service were both fantastic.
The Ting restaurant is definitely worth a visit. I expected the restaurant to be more expensive given that it is located in The Shard. However, prices are very comparable to similar restaurants that are based on ‘sea level’ in London. Sometimes it may be difficult to get a table for the prime dinner time at the weekend so make sure you book well in advance.
