We like this restaurant - there is a very attentive service staff who would spend time explaining to us what were the dishes about. The fried rice with minced beef was really good and fragrant - we had 2 servings as my nephews loved it so much. We tried the shanghai fried noodles but felt it was just average -... More

Just have been there. The Location is good and very central. The Food was good. Service really welcoming. Prices are cheap for Europen Standards, thocuh quiet epensive for Chinese ones. Would recommend it for a fancyish night out.

Based in Fuzhou Lu next door to the House of Jazz and Blues, Shanghai Laolaos or Shanghai Grandmothers is a great place to have a proper Chinese meal in Shanghai, without a hefty price tab. As a family of four even taking visitors our biggest bill has been ¥450 around £45 that was a meal for six. The food is... More

This is the third time I visit this restaurant in Shanghai, but this time I did not have the company of Shanghainese to order for us. Very good lunch, with many dishes with peanuts, a strange taste for westerners. Several typical dishes all well done and well served. This time I did notice some issues on cleaningness that I had...

Go there after walking around the Bund.... Try the Crispy Duck, Long bean + beef, Fried rice and Seafood soup (fish, mussel, shrimp, squid). All is superb especially the Crispy Duck. The soup is a little bit tasteless. Please do come early to avoid queuing.

Good food at appropriates prices are hard to find near the Bund. This place is an exception. It place offers a good mixture of local food for the more adventurous (frogs, intestines) and also 'safe' eaters. There is also a picture menu with English, so very tourist friendly. Despite that, it is not at all touristy as a substantial portion... More

This was the first place we ate in China. The food was excellent, the staff friendly, and the final bill was surprisingly small. Good value and a good intro to China. I would recommend the rice cakes and beef!

This was the first place we'd eaten at in China and were a bit worried with the language barrier but the staff were really helpful. It's really well priced, great variety on the menu and nice cold beer. Definitely would go back and if you're adventurous, try the chili pigs intestines, they're yummy!!

Visit Laolao street not for some goods there, but like have some nice pictures, specially the old style building with red lanterns. But seems traffic jam most time. So if you not have enough time, better not go there.
