“Not up to my expectation anymore!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2011

Setup still the same!
The food quality have reduce compare to last few visit! Probably the head chef not there but really upset this time visit especially on the food!
Shanghai always my top priority recommended restaurant if any one like dim sum or shanghainese cuisine!
I dine in twice in a day Lu ch and dinner! The lunch was pack but the service still there although there are running of full house! Good were great as well!
But when I return for dinner, the meal upset me especially out of 3 item I ordered 2 were not nice! I ordered shanghainese stream meat dumplings! Yes one of their famous! Supposingly this item goes with vinegar and shredded Ginger! But the servers served us soy sauce!
Second I ordered a fried rice, the fresh water prawn were not fresh!
The the fried noodle is too dry!
Probably the trainee cook it!
Please do not upset me the next visit! Still in my top list!
