I enjoyed the food here but what I remember most was the environment - this is a grand old house and the restaurant area is full of Old Shanghai atmosphere and is very spacious. The building, with its garden could almost be an attraction in itself, albeit perhaps hard to find the first time. I was also most impressed with... More

We were taken to this restaurant by a local food writer and really enjoyed the food. The restaurant is in old villa, with an unmarked entry so you need clear directions on how to find it. We were served dish after dish delicately flavoured, interesting food including chicken in rice wine, honey red dates stuffed with glutinous rice flour, mandarin... More

The location in an old villa is great, and the private dining room at the very top one of the most romantic in all of Shanghai. The food here is more classical than at Fu1015, and things such as the 熏鱼 (smoked fish),红烧肉 (braised pork belly) are some of the best in town.

Shanghai has a growing list of popular (and celebrity) chefs. And near the top of both lists is Tony Yu, who recently created the menu for the Mandarin Oriental in Pudong. I had one of the most amazing fish dishes I’ve ever had at that restaurant and thought it would make sense to try one of chef Yu’s original restaurants.... More

Located in one of the refurbished old villas in a discreet lane, it can be a little difficult to locate (not a big issue if one is equipped with Baidu Maps), food is of good portion, pricing and quality and ambience is good. It was a cool night but restaurant felt a little warm. Enjoyed the food, especially the smoked... More

Fu 1039 is not easy to find, though its name helps. Located inside an alley at No.1039 on Yuyuan Road, there is no signboard or banner showing the name of the restaurant neither on Yuyuan Road or the alley. It reflects the confidence of its owner/operator to rely instead on words of mouth to promote its business. Customers would need... More

Housed in an old colonial bungalow, this wonderful restaurant is the perfect place to go for authentic shanghainese cuisine. Their specialty, smoked fish, stewed tender pork, drunken chicken is a must try. The old colonial ambience coupled with shanghainese food served in simple but elegant platings makes this outlet indeed a wonderful option. Be transported to the era of yesteryears.

This place will take you back to old Shanghai. The building itself is a genuine old house with much if the original walls, floors, and even it seems the fixtures. Food is the real deal - true Shanghainese. Wine list almost non existent so bring your own.

We enjoyed dinner, and found the service and atmosphere quite wunderful. Many of our dishes were quite delicious as well. I don't, however, feel this place deserves the rave reviews and placement in the top 50 in Shanghai. We ate at other more wonderful restaurants in this same $25 to $35 per person range.

Fu 1039 is a 1930s mansion located in an alley.Fu means happy while 1039 is the street address. The restaurant name reflects the mood inside as you'll have an enjoyable time savoring traditional and unique Shanghai dishes, which are its specialty and very delicious. The interior is very charming and the restaurant is not pretentious at all. Traditional Shanghai dishes... More
