Hosted a business meeting for eight starting at ten thirty so this was dim sum plus a lot of soup (fish head broth was amazing even if I would never have ordered it myself), rice and hotpot dishes. Food very good (not as good as the best in Hong Kong but still very good) and atmosphere is superb. I have eaten in Laurels many times and the quality is always very good. This Portofino branch is also in a nice chillout place. "Portofino" is in Overseas China Town (OCT) a ten minute walk from Windows of the World and is a copy of a mediterranean/Italian town with pavement cafes and wine shop; it charms rather than annoys and somehow manages to carry off the attempt to persuade you that there is something really Italian about the place (Italians may disagree but there are far more crass versions of this sort of thing in China). All in all I recommend this place as somewhere to relax in Shenzhen... and for European expats, if you sit outside you can eat authentic Cantonese food AND persuade yourself that you have gone back home for a couple of hours.

There are different Laurel Restaurants, but I would recommend the one at OCT Portofino club house (in Nanshan, Xiang Sian Street), where it is possible to enjoy the food sitting in front of the lake and a nice reconstruction of the italian city.
The food is very good, definitely recommended the Peking Duck and the typical fish.

Had dinner here January 2, 2013. Had Peking duck, prawn in vermicelli and sweet and sour pork. Flavors were really well balanced, lovely presentation, and well timed. However, was up feeling very unwell a few hours later! Other diners I was with were the same unfortunately. We put it down to the prawns since we all had some. Disappointing as we were looking forward to this restaurant.

We ate every day at Laurel at Louhu 6 floor. 7 days
First find out in the best dishes get someone to write it in Chinese, this is the Key to fabulous food.
They try to sell you dumplings sure that is fine but you need to eat fish dishes, the rice with calamari, pork dumplings are fabouloous.
Yes, busy busy busy don't worry relax you will get a table and won't be disappointed.
You have to stand in a queue but ask for someone who speaks English, if you don't like the table tell them.
