Three of us ordered A bottle of
champagne at the bar. This bartender poured glasses too full. Then she took the bottle ( NOT EMPTY at all) back on her station and never served us again. With that attitude, she never deserved 20% tip afterall.
As Singapore meets Sin City-style, Shrine is a spectacular entertainment triptych--dine! drink! dance!--set in the MGM Grand resort and casino. The lower-level lounge and nightclub areas often feature A-List DJs and celebs, while the more intimate, but equally swanky, upper level houses an Asian-themed restaurant (think Marlene Dietrich in “Singapore Express” meets Mr. Chow via Las Vegas). Eye-catching black and red lacquered wood, filigree carved fittings and gilded Buddhist statues lend a sophisticated sense of pan-Asian cool. If you’re with a crew, Shrine’s signature pupu platter works well for sharing. Dining specialties include salmon with a sweet miso glaze, wok-fried shrimp with rice vermicelli, and veggie spring rolls with yuzu cream--cheongsam optional.
