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

If you are in for hot Chinese food, this is your spot. The tea-house-like atmosphere adds to the whole experience, fast service, good food, and bustling atmosphere. Must-eat.

Make a reservation and roll your sleeves. Bring a lot of friends, drink beer, eat, eat and eat some of the nicest spicy food you could have ever tried. In case you wanna impress your loved one with a white linen, white glove service, please do not go here. This place is nasty and you need to remind the waiters... More

Like many, I had the cumin ribs and thought they were excellent. I enjoyed the rustic decor, and my waitress was high-spirited in a good way. Not that she spike English, but we got along well. I also had a spicy duck tongue appetizer that was more of a novelty than truly good food, but you only live once. It's... More

Have been here many times and will come back many times again. Food is good and the price reasonable. Ribs are excellent . Skewered prawns are good. Spicy fish head is authentic . If you like spicy food then this is a place to visit. Do not expect 5 star service or immaculate cutlery. But it is a fun place... More
