“Good Shanghai food with Shanghai modern history.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012 via mobile

If you love the place which has nostalgia and history, I recommend this restaurant.
Shanghai Old Station Restaurant is former abbey in 19th century, beautiful French style architecture. On the yard, there are two trains( that's why this restaurant is named " Station") which were used by loyal family of Qing dynasty and by Dr.Sun's wife. If you get a table near the yard luckly, you can enjoy food and strange view of trains and tall building behind.
They provide traditional Shanhai food. Not impressive so much but okay.
Easy access from Xujiahui subway station.

“Lovely decoration”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012 via mobile

I had a friend coming and have dinner there for 2 nights, since last weekend.
The restaurant looks pretty and their service is very professional, be a local and live nearby I never come before but think next time would bring friends here again.

“Nice decor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

It is a restaurant with old train cabins as one of their dinning area. The decor in both main dinning room and train cabins are good. For the food, better to do some research first as I found some portions are quite small. Overall, it is a nice place and worth visit.

“Atmosphere exceeded only by food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

Nothing to dislike. The restaurant is in an old convent that served the Jesuit church across the street. They have done a nice job of making it remind one of a train station.
