This was my favourite restaurant from my 4 days stay in Shanghai. Very taste dishes, friendly staff, the menu is in English with pictures, and amazing price - about 80 RMB including drinks.

“Fabulous pork, quick service, great pricing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

This restaurant was recommended by our guide. We walked in around 8:15 and got a table immediately, we ordered the spicy chicken which was a cold dish but very tasty, soy braised beef was tender and delicious, the dongpo pork (braised pork) was to die for !!! Fried rice was good but the lotus stem with glutenous rice was avoidable . We also ordered two bottles of chinese rice wine (alot like port wine but stronger) both were very nice but the 8 year aged one was better.
Service was very quick and efficient...the menu is in English with pictures so ordering isn't a problem. We paid a bill of 370 RMB which is really good considering the location to the Bund and that it's Shanghai .
It's just two minutes away from the Bund so an after dinner stroll to see the bright lights is perfect.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

I ended up eating here twice in a four night stay, as the food was so good. The restaurant is modern, with friendly staff. There is a wide range of food on offer and the menu comes with pictures to help assist your choice. This was my favourite restaurant from my 3 weeks stay in China, and I would love to return!

“Excellent introduction to Chinese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

Like other reviewers this was a great choice for our first meal in China. Excellent choices with pictures and English. Had a super beef with peppers and shrimp dish. Good service and the price amazing - only £20 including beer and tea. Definitely recommend.
