A large Shanghaiese restaurant with a twist. You can (if you book) eat in two old railway carriages. They are plenty large enough for a group dinner and have some interesting history stuff. A nice idea if you want a private room. The food is good, but not great. However the service is a bit British Rail - nothing offensive,... More

Had a nice experience there with friends last week. The restaurant entrance is through an old convent and we were lucky to be seated in one of the train wagons situated behind the convent. Most of the times - in restaurants with these kind of themes - the food can be disappointing. However we were surprised by the authenticity of... More

This is the promotion theme of the restaurant which, by and large, is an appropriate reflection of what can be expected of this fashionable place located in the heart of the busy Xujiahui district in Shanghai. As it's the trend these days in Shanghai and elsewhere in China, historic buildings like this one - a convent in olden days -... More

The evening my wife and I went to the restaurant, the station, or the restaurant, or whatever, was quite full of diner passengers. We were seated at one of the wagons (I believe it was the one that belonged to the Empress Dowager) and presented with an e-tablet containing hundreds of dishes to choose. The pictures and description of the... More

This quaint restaurant serves delicious good old-fashioned local food, not nouvelle cuisine or fusion food. Price is a little on the high side but the quality cannot be faulted and portions can be substantial. The braised duck, spicy fish head and steamed vegetable buns are great comfort food during Winter. The cold dishes also help to whip up the appetite.... More

Refreshing place in Shanghai set in the heart of the city. This old building offers a great restaurant setting. The number of dishes is just incredible and this is good food quality / price quality. The building is historic and offers different rooms to dine in. Booking is advised and you can also eat in an old carriage.

We had drinks and dinner in early July and sat in the main restaurant. The food was great and presented very well. The service however was very slow and poor. We were presented with an iPad with not a word of direction. It took a while to navigate the menu (as it was in Chinese), and we guessed that you... More
