Our last night in Shanghai and we decided to try this local German eatery...big mistake! We had a sausage and onion starter that turned out to be fat and onion. Inedible. My wife ordered a skewer of steak and I the pork spare ribs for our mains. Both dishes were served with overcooked potatoe. The skewer of steak seemed well... More

Paulaner Xintantdi throw foreigners out. let the drinks pay in advance and before you have drunk, you get be discharged with apparent police. Reasons for it could not be called. This is not a German style. Everybody should avoid to go this bar.

Its a staple of the Xin Tian Di dining scene and while it isn't on the fine dining list it is a great place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine of an afternoon and sample the snacks on offer. The Paulaner tends to get really busy and the outside tables are pretty highly sought after - grab one... More

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
