I ate at this restaurant a month ago, and was in a bit of a rush to finish lunch. I informed the waitress of that the second I sat down, and my friend and I promptly ordered. My friend's food came instantly, but mine did not come until she was almost done eating. In addition, I had ordered chicken rice.... More

Food at Charmant is always good and always consistent. A great place to eat out an unpretentious but absolutely amazing Taiwanese cuisine. I come everytime i am in Shanghai and it does not disappoint.

Came here for takeout was seated to wait for my order with a view of the kitchen window where food comes out. The man working behind the window was visibly drunk and disgustingly flirting with the waitresses. I saw two women handling food picking their teeth with their fingers and then carrying food to tables. This restaurant used to be... More

We have been there 2 times. The first time we ordered a lot of dishes to try different things. Some were very good while other were actually not that good. The second time we only ordered the dishes that we liked. Gong-Bao Chicken, Sichuan Style Beef and Shrimp fried rice with pineapple are our favorite dishes.

After reading the reviews we were quite looking forward to this. At 220 Rmb for two it is difficult to be overly critical but overall we were a bit disappointed. Brocolli came steamed rather than stir-fried but was good. Deep fried oysters and the rice dish were good. Duck very disappointing. Staff seemed weary. Great flowers!

I was taken here while visiting on business by a family friend, a 10 year resident of Shanghai, and was very impressed. Generally I am not a fan of Taiwanese food, but every dish she ordered was light and tasty. Perhaps the pancake wraps were a little on the fragile side, but once you had shoveled them into your mouth... More

I love the dumplings with the hot sauce. I especially love their appetizers (cold ones). The servers are very attentive and polite. Most impotently, the restaurant is very clean and cozy. A cup of latte and the sweet almond soup are the best for your dessert choices. One thing I love about this restaurant is its fresh flowers and plants.... More

Charmant has a very nice decor and feel to it, the food is authentic and no MSG is used in all the dishes. unlike many asian restaurants in Shanghai, i don't feel thirsty after having dine there. Location is great too. Right in the heart of the french concession where lots of bars and nice shops are situated. They open... More
