“Tasty food and very good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

9 of us went, having been a couple of years ago and were not disappointed. The 3 course menu for 5.25 is outstanding value although slightly smaller portions than off the main menu. Good choice of dishes and all were tasty. Staff are friendly and service efficient - we were having starters within 20 minutes of sitting down.
It's not going to be fine dining at this price but I would have willingly paid double for what we had. The complimentary Schnapps was a good way to finish off.

“worst meal we have ever had!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

We both opted to go for a chinese meal & decided to go to Shanghai as it was in walking distance of our hotel. Well we won't be going there ever again. I wish I could tell you what meat we were eating but it was meant to be beef! it didn't look or taste like beef it was tastless apart from the amount of salt that made your tongue curl, the rice had hard bits in as if it had been heated up from the day before. it was served up on winnie the pooh & tigger the tiger plates ha laughable! if you want delicious food & is unbelievable value go to Bar 76 or The Milan.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012 via mobile

Went to this chinese recentley as near our hotel. Food was average. the chicken in the dishes was stringy and chewy. Average prices. They do a set meal for 6 euros which is really good value for money which we did not try but i would not go back and order off the main menu again. Much more likely to try somewhere else
