Delicious

The Hunan Ribs are as delicious as advertised in other reviews but the Hot and Sour Noodles were amazing. Friendly staff with moderate English, all around fantastic meal.

When you go to Di Shui Dong you HAVE to order the ribs. Really nice, spicy food and a typical chaotic Chinese restaurant atmosphere.

We had a really good meal at this restaurant. There were lots of Chinese eating here, so the food must be fairly authentic, and the menu certainly had some very authetic food (bullfrog in pot!...).

Eat the ribs, Eat the ribs. Eat the ribs. Nothing else will matter if you Eat the ribs. Cold beer, great food and possibly the best ribs in the world. Enjoy.

The overall taste of food was pretty good. Small portions but with cheap prices. The environment could be improved.

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.
