Great Chinese food

My wife and I visited Shanghai for our short break, we went to this Di aging song because she was been here before during her time that working here 6 year ago. It take me quite some time to find a place as you know not many people around you can help with the direction and we do not speak... read more

We had been a couple of years ago on a previous visit to Shanghai and had very fond memories. I'm pleased to say it's every bit as good as we remembered. The lamb ribs were a treat.

I'm certainly no expert but thete were plenty of locals in this restaurant so they must be doing something right. Once you get past the bad wait staff the food was tasty and came quickly. Only issue came with the accuracy of this offline app which had the location 300 metres away on a different street. I would recommend eating... More

Northern China food with spices and a bit spicy. Very famous restaurant and usually crowded. My favorite restaurant. Rice are steam in a small clay pot and serve piping hot. Dishes such as fried mix vegetable and beans, grill pork rib, fried vegetable with preserve meat etc is my all time favorite. Price is reasonable. Try to make reservation first.

To my surprise the portion is "Japanese style", very cute and petit, and food taste was similar to all street food. Service was horrible, missing orders and wrong dishes were serving to my table then the one next to us, waiter doesn't apologize for mistakes, the kids was hungry by his food was served the latest. My suggestion, don't go

The house has a strong taste of local design where the spicy food came from. We ordered 3 appetizers 1 hot fish, 1 meat and 1 sautéed vegetable, however the food was below average in Shanghai and service to be inattentive and slightly rude.

Came here with friends who live in the city and are regulars. Place was packed with locals and westerners alike which was quite surprising for a Monday night. We ordered loads and everything was really good especially the ribs and the string beans with chilli. Its good value here as the cost for 4 people with drinks was 650 RMB.... More

I always bring visiting family and friends to this restaurant. Because food there is good. I'm not a great fan of Chinese cuisine but this place is very special. I think its a 'must-go' place to go while in Shanghai. It's always busy and crowded but you almost never have to wait. Service is nice and fast. stuff is smiley... More
