In an Ancient Chinese decor the food and service are excellent. Must book in advance. You may find several different courses of Hunan cuisine. Refined and worth going

The restaurant is beautiful, set in a Shikumen house, gorgeously lit, very serene. However, we had better food at places like Jishi. The service, while attentive, was odd; all of our courses came at once and very quickly, and we had to ask repeatedly and wait quite awhile for bottled water. Also, I ordered a cocktail when we sat down,... More

We had lunch at Ye Shanghai on a Saturday. The restaurant is located in the French Concession, surrounded by trendy shops and restaurants. We've heard the restaurant is famous. Fortunately they were able to seat us for lunch without a reservation. The decor is clean and crisp, with starched linen tablecloths. We ordered the unlimited dim sum lunch for about... More

We enjoyed a range of fish and vegetable dishes each with its own subtle and distinctive flavour. Highlights were stuffed soft shell crab, chinese yam and the smoked fish. The service was helpful and efficient and the ambiance calm and comfortable.

Like typical higher-end Shanghai restaurants, Ye shanghai has nice, comfortable setting, great food and high price tag. The menu options were great. Service is OK. The dishes we had were delicious. It is definitely a nice place to bring friends over and have a great time. While I enjoyed my experience here, I have had equally-delicious food in other places... More

Had the hairy crab with the vinegar and yellow wine. Top class. And other dishes were all very balanced and cooked to perfection. My guests commented that despite the restaurant was full, it was easy for us at the table to have a good conversation. We think its because of the high ceiling and maybe sound proofing.

An upmarket, chic restaurant serving tasty food in rather modest portions. The place has a nice buzz to it and the service was very good. Despite being in the rather touristic Xintiandi district Yé Shanghai seems to attract a mainly Chinese crowd (who may, of course, also be tourists!) rather than expats or Western tourists. As another reviewer has noted,... More

Went there as part of a big group and we had a set dinner - the food was tasty and well presented. Downstairs is more intimate and the upstairs is large with music. The restaurant is well located amongst many other restaurants

Staying in Xintiandi

Neighborhood Profile
Xintiandi
The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and shops along Madang Road. The pleasant Taipinghu Park provides the area with green space and is also home to Shanghai Fashion Week twice a year. It’s not all glitter and glamour, though, as the rise of Danshui Road has given the Xintiandi area a shot of toned-down character. Small bars and cafes, mostly owned by locals, have people hanging out in a formerly quiet, unassuming part of the neighborhood.
