Tianjin features a variety of high-end selection establishments for lavish fine dining. If you’re looking to spend big on luxurious meals, the city’s cosmopolitan hotels and restaurants offer amazing experiences. From Chinese food to Western cuisines, here are the most extravagant restaurants that you’ll find in Tianjin.
Smoki & Co
This American steakhouse is known to serve the finest steaks in Tianjin. That said, if you’re not in the mood for a sizzling steak, Smoki & Co prepares a luscious smoked salmon fillet as well as a selection of house wines and salads. The staff here are highly attentive and have conversational English.

Zest at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel
The Michelin-starred restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel is known by all Tianjin expats to have the greatest buffet in town, hands down. As seafood is Tianjin’s specialty cuisine, being a coastal city, fish dishes here are as fresh as they come. Taste from Zest‘s line of specialties from East to West’s best, and make your last stop at the scrumptious dessert station to top off the feast.
Lobby Lounge at Renaissance Hotel
Located in Renaissance Hotel, where you can enjoy live music and pleasant company, the Lobby Lounge is an underestimated fine dining experience in the TEDA district. Whether you’re alone or out with a group, the servers are more than hospitable in making your visit a memorable one. The homemade tofu is also a surprise favorite, and the lounge serves exquisite beverages.

Plan your follow-up visit to The Ritz-Carlton’s Zest with a visit to their Chinese restaurant. Tian Tia Xuan pays meticulous attention to honoring the dishes that define the diversity of Hong Kong. Try the barbecue pork buns or the deep-fried carp, but most importantly, order from the range of dim sum dishes. If visiting in a small group, perhaps on business, it’s possible to rent a private room.
