Small restaurant on 2 floors. Wood decoration with a mix of old and modern. It's a good place for business lunch or romantic dinner. Food taste good, service is not fast but staff is very warm hearted and smiling.

As we waited to order, the other group in the cafe were waiting on drinks which we saw were just waiting on the bench as the waitress continued cleaning cutlery (which she had been doing for some time). When the man went up to get his own coffee, he was told to sit down and that she would bring it... More

Our meals at this place was very average, and quite disappointing to the price. My tenderloin steak were simply served with french fries, despite the menucard stating that salad would also be included. Our cheese platter, which we ordered as an appetizer, arrived together with our main course.

This is a great little bistro in the French Concession. Good atmosphere, friendly staff, although their English is not so good, but ordering is made easy with photos of the menu and a numbering system, perfect for us foreigners whose Mandarin is a little rusty. The food is fresh, tasty and good value. Service is a little slow, but if... More

We stumbled across Origin, looking for Brunch/lunch and were very pleased we came here. Great menu, kids menu, fresh juices, and a healthy selection of food. Coffee was very good, and the size of the meals were very good value. Service and time was not speedy, but when the food arrived it is obvious why, as they presentation and quality... More

I have eaten an evening meal here, as well as a Sunday brunch. Both meals were enjoyable, and refreshingly healthy, but not spectacular. The brunch took quite a while to arrive, and when it did it had a slice of bacon on it which I had asked not to have, since I am vegetarian. However the French owner did personally... More

I recently went here with a group of friends for dinner. We sat upstairs to eat which is small, cosy with a nice atmosphere. The stairs are quite dimly lit so be careful. I had soup to start which was good but only luke warm. The fish main course was very nice. The service was good and the waiting staff... More

I have been to Orgine twice - for a sunday brunch and for a dinner. The location is great and the concept of healthy food is refreshing for Shanghai! Food is not bad at all but slightly overpriced compared to other nice meals in Shanghai. The service however is terrible - on the the first occasion they presented me with... More
