Are you German, feeling homesick and thirsty? The Paulaner just below the (Pudong) Shangri-La at the riverside serves your need of German beer, German food (although with a slight Asian flavor) and provides a spectacular view on the Bund at sunset. Give it a try!

We were walking around Xintiandi after a long day of visiting Shanghai. Saw the Paulaner and decided that I could quench my thirst with a nice weissbier. Ordered a beer and my wife a glass of Prosecco. We had to return the prosecco as it was completely flat. Seriously at the price at which they sell their drinks they shouldn't... More

It's definitely a nice restaurant and bar in one of the nicest areas in Shanghai. And the beer is great. Food is good, but not superb. The atmosphere in the place is mixed between Westerns and Chinese. But to really enjoy the place and appreciate it, you need to be seated in the ground floor near the band, or outside... More

Xintiandi is an oasis if you want to call it that, of western style conspicuous consumption in Shanghai but no less nice for all that. This Brauhaus and microbrewery is a great place for a late morning break and a pint of so of one of their homebrews. I had the May Bock that they were serving and found it... More

We came here and sat outside in the beer garden after we had lunch. We had a great time just talking and enjoying the atmosphere. The garden setup blocked the hot sun and you didn't feel like you were outside in the middle of Xintiandi. Would return. It was very busy inside.

So we reached the famous hang out spot of Xin Tian Di at about 9.30 pm on a Saturday night at this very popular place only to find a sharing table inside or had a choice to wait at the beer garden outside which could also take about an hour to get a free table. Food and beer is a... More

I love German sausages and this place was no exception.. they were delicious! We ate here twice during our week long stay! I had sausages, sauerkraut and mash the first time and the sausage platter the second time, all washed down with their own full bodied wheat beer! Magnificent!

I lived in Shanghai 5 years, Paulaner is the best place to enjoy lunch in a Sunday afternoon with kids. Reasonable price, massive choices of qualified beers, look at the crowd of Xintiandi and nearby where we stayed. Although the wait staffs never happy to give a smile but they always serve your orders quickly enough, nothing to complain further,... More

Paulaner Xintiandi is a nice place where you can dine al fresco and enjoy the german specialities. In the evening you can listen to Live Music and even dance.

If you are travelling through China for some time this restaurant make a welcome change as you could easily be back in Europe. After too much restaurants of things that you don't recognise on your plate this is a breath of fresh air. The beer's not bad either.
