Great food, excellent desserts. The Tuna Salad and any pizza are our favorites. And we never have bad service there. One of the best chocolate chip cookies in Shanghai. If you love rich chocolate, you will love this place.

Whisk is a popular choice amongst international school kids and expats. I first discovered Whisk four years ago, since then I've been kind of a regular guest. The ambience is very cozy and relaxing. It is a great place to go to with friends, family, your special other half, even solo! Be sure to save room for dessert and treat... More

« Winter is coming » and I think we all agree that a hot chocolate is always welcome, and if with it you can add a chocolate cake, it's heaven. Hidden on Huai hai lu near the subway station « Changshu lu », this « chocolate venue » serves hell of chocolate cakes. Let's say the bad things first :... More

I've been here for over 5 times.Chocolate therapy cake is my favorite. And there's hot chocolate and white chocolate with cramberry(forget the name) drink is also really good. Also pizza here is delicious! Stew rice is too salty for me, upside down cake is too sweet. Remember to bring water here, or it costs. And it doesn't offer wifi.

I stopped by for a coffee and dessert in the afternoon. Its a great spot for an afternoon pick me up! I got an espresso con pana and a tiramisu- easily one of the best I've ever had. Its a great place if you're craving western food

Yes the chocolate here is amazing - the hot chocolate is to die for and the chocolate mousse is exceptional, but we actually head there for some very good pasta and risotto dishes. Great as a casual dining location for laid back weekend lunch. Top tip, pace yourself! Sooo many visits where we've failed to touch desert at all due... More

I have been here many times and I almost always get the same exact thing. They have delicious gnocchi. It is nice and warm but not to creamy either. They also have very nice chocolate-banana shakes. They chocolate ice cream sandwiches were also very good too. I hope I can return soon.

It is said to be one of the best venue to taste cholocate - to some extent i can't deny. Not bad but the portion is really pathetic and price is skyhigh.

While the prices are through the roof in this place, their food is definitely high quality. Be sure to have a diet plan if you want to come to this place because their desserts will clog your arteries and give you a heart attack...in a good way. The desserts are super delicious. I even took an extra chocolate cake home.... More

The pasta dishes were all good (though their spicy seafood one was not spicy). All the ones we ordered all used penne which was cooked well and the pizza was simple, thin crust and delicious. The standout were the desserts. All these were absolutely incredible. The chocolate banana cake, the chocolate cheesecake, the molten chocolate, the list goes on... Nothing... More
