Top Quality and Authentic Shanghainess food

I take all my friends here for real authentic Shanghainess food that is well prepared and cooked with fresh ingredients. Located also in one of those traditional and classic Shanghainess Houses. The overall dining experience makes you feel like going back to the 30's.

We were here for the 15+ course banquet with a very large group of people. Food quality was top notch, presentation, flavours and cooking standard as you would find in an up market restaurant in many international cities. It was a very enjoyable, memorable experience and highly recommended.

Exceptionally well-prepared Shanghainese food - fried dishes were not greasy, spicy dishes were not searing - in a beautifully restored 1930's art deco villa. Lots of unusual and delicious specialities on the menu (I especially recommend the smoked fish), and you feel as if you're in the dining room of a rich trader in Shanghai's pre-war heyday. A marvellous experience,... More

Fu 1039 - great ambience in a renovated old villa. We walked in past the wooden staircase to discover a pianist playing old classics - touches like this just add to to the atmosphere. It was mostly local Shanghainese and their families dining so we felt as if we had made an authentic choice for local cuisine. The food was... More

I've been entertaining my friends and clients in Fu 1039 for years. The old stand alone villa, the antique furniture, old wooden and winding stair case, offers guests a feel for the 30's atmosphere. The food used to be top notch, the green peas, the Braised Pork with Eggs, the Shanghainese style smoked fish, the drunken chicken, were among our... More

By far my favourite place in Shanghai. Great traditional Shanghainese cuisine in a traditional art-deco house. Go for the Pork Belly in clay pot, one of tr best in the city!

FU 1039 was recommended for traditional Shanghainese cuisine. The food was very good and reasonable. The beautiful old converted villa was lovely. The service was good.

I don't come to Shanghai often but had heard great things about this place. We stuck to many of their signature dishes and liked their interpretation of traditional cuisine with a twist. Drunken chicken (chilled by a mound of shaoxing wine ice shavings), warm smoked fish (much better than it sounds!) and dongpo braised pork belly were some of the... More

I visited this place earlier in the year. I had an enjoyable dinner during my first visit. I went here again 6 months after my first visit and I had high expectations as I was bringing my whole visiting family to try authentic Shanghainese cuisine. Unfortunately, it was SO difficult to get reservations as they did not pick up their... More

Staying in Zhongshan Park

Neighborhood Profile
Zhongshan Park
The residential and commercial areas around the beautiful grounds of Zhongshan Park have never been considered particularly fashionable by a majority of Shanghai’s foreign residents, but plenty of expats do choose to live here. The park itself is a huge draw, providing a pocket of serenity in the middle of the metropolis. The area has its share of trendy shops with wares that can’t be found elsewhere, delicious restaurants with food ranging from fancy to affordable, and great hidden bars. Rents are also cheaper here than in other neighborhoods with the same conveniences. Aside from the obvious attractions, with its neighborhood fix-anything shops and pop-up street stalls that sell anything you need, you’ll never sacrifice Western comforts.
