This will be probably the best hunan food you'll get in shanghai if you don't try anything else. Seriously, it's not bad, but there are SOOOO many better places in this city. Try hunan country kitchen for a better experience.

Prepare for long waits and try to make a reservation. Casual restaurant so jeans is perfect. The food is the best hunan you will have (Hunan is spicy) if you like spicy you will love it here. You will need some Tsingtao beer and ask for it cold to wash down the delicious spicy food. The ribs are our favourite... More

It is not a fancy place, but very comfortable and authentic with great food and decent prices. Took foreign business visitors there and we all enjoyed it very much. It is quite busy and tables turn often with a mixed crowd of foreigners and locals. The recommended dishes, such as the ribs and sour beans were fantastic, not as spicy... More

The food was fabulous. Heavily spiced Hunan style dishes. The ribs and dumplings are especially good. Fried bullfrogs are worth a try also. Great service. Not too crowded when we were there.

A noisy busy restaurant serving consistently good Hunan food (if it says 'hot', believe them). Extensive menu - we have been there about four times and always tried new things as well as favourites and enjoyed them. Fabulous fried aubergines and green beans. The full size spare ribs are excellent, as long as you like cumin. Unusually for Shanghai, some... More

We had a very good dinner here. Made a reservation,and were seated promptly on arrival. At 7PM it was packed, mostly Chinese and a few foreigners. THe service was fast and efficient, no problem with our English and limited Mandarin. The menu is easy to understand, with lots of choices. All the dishes were cooked well, very tasty. Especially liked... More

Decided to visit after reading all the reviews. We were seated straight away, obviously arrived at the right time, because it proceeded to get very busy. We were served politely and promptly in English. The food came fast too. We enjoyed it, but maybe didn't make the best choices. We didn't order the ribs!!! It was all very nice, but... More

This place does the best pork ribs ever. I have seriously dreamt about these ribs a few times. That is all.

Di Shui Dong is always a classic among friends - a great mix of local Chinese and foreigners. It's cheap, loud, with lots of beer, and big tables for lots of friends! The food is very good, but I wouldn't say it's the best in town (try Hunan Rural on Wulumuqi!). It's the place to go with a good group... More
