One of the best places in Shanghai to enjoy a comfortable massage. Professional receptionist will address you at the best combination. The room are very comfortable and the massage masters are really professional. My congratulations to the management.

Great environment, good service

went for a post dinner massage. Price is steeper than some of their competitors on Dagu Rd. They do make it up for the service and very clean facilities + a full menu of drinks & food - you can literally have dinner there! try the ear cleaning service, ticklish but soothing.

Wonderful surprise
Jul 2017 • Business
Being a sucker for massages, especially those of the hard sort, I came here with no expectations because to my recollection, massage in China is always lacklustre for me.

Service was pretty surly, especially when they thought I was doing foot massage instead of full body massage. Had a male therapist and fortunately it was those clothed massage, nothing dodgy about that.

Boy, another masseuse which I would love to bring back to Singapore ! He is curt but he sure knows his stuff well. I have quite a high threshold for pain but he really made me stretch my limit in a strangely therapeutic sadistic way! He knows the problem with my back (I have scoliosis) and he knows his spinal anatomy well. He did recommend some stretches I could do to ease my back strain as well.

I had the blissful night of sleep that night.

Wonderful foot massage, nice people, very clean

Lovely place for a foot massage; highly recommended. The masseurs were excellent, the venue is clean and they even serve delicious food. We had pear juice and a bun during our 90 minute foot massage. Masseur 120 even gave my feet a good scrub; better than my latest pedi from Las Vegas. Prices are very reasonable. I think I'll be going here every month from now on....

Half so-so; half great

Took the 60" foot treatment and 60" body treatment. the foot massage was so-so. Was ok, but nothing special. The body massage was one of the top 10 of all time--great pressure. I am a massage freak and get massages 2x every week at a minimum. I would return, but not get a package deal.

They feed you too so go hungry

We went for the 50 minute foot reflexology/ 50 minute massage package after we ate lunch because I wasn't sure whether they really did give "free" food. They do. Within minutes of our foot reflexology, my therapist asked if I wanted a "pedicure" due to my horrible calloused feet. Why not. . . So for 78 Y more, I got my feet shaved--something that apparently's against the law in the US now so can never get done satisfactorily. Huge disgusting pile of foot shavings created, smooth feet produced. Only bummer was when one person's shaving one foot, and the other's massaging the other foot, you can't enjoy the massage as much. However, I was glad to get the foot shaving.

They gave us a double room--a nice treat. Ended up costing about $65 US for all those treatments and 100 minutes of relaxation.

Love the massage in a rainy day
Dec 2015 • Friends
this massage place is very luxury like and the environment is quite clean and comfortable.

We went there at 11 pm on a rainy day and we are welcomed by the amazing friendly staff and masters. They are experienced and very sociable. Some of them even understand a bit of English.

We chose foot massages and the pedicure. And there were unlimited food and drink to supply as these are included in the massage services. I accidentally spilled my tea but my master told me nothing to worry about and she took care the rest of cleaning and ordered a new drink for me.

We have so much fun because the masters are very cheerful and sincere. And the massage is really great which was a bit painful that night.but I feel much relaxed the next few day :) i respect and appreciate their hard works!

Excellent Massage
Dec 2015 • Solo
I have spent significant time in Shangai over the past 15 years but oddly had never made it over to Dago Lu. I came out to Dagu for lunch but noticed the plethora of massage places. It was a bit confusing as from my experience streets with many massage places in a row are only massage by name. However, none of the spots here were pushing for customers to enter like the only a massage by name places. So I checked the internet and seen thatcTaipan had many satisfied customers. I am always up for a good massage after the long flight to China so Taipan here I come! I entered and found a very clean business. I selected the head to toe massage. One Masseuse for Feet and Legs and one for Head, Neck and Shoulders. Both masseuses used very strong pressure. In most places I cannot even beg to get this strong of a massage. The massage itself was at times a bit painful. My pain threshold is very low. But I also believe the best massage should have pain with the pressure and none when the pressure is released. For me the true measure of a good massage is how I feel after the massage. I felt complete rejunivated when the massage was done. Each massuse found the areas that needed work and hit them hard. Cost is average for a mid level massage. Sure you can find cheaper massages in Shanghai but not if this quality overall. This will now be my go to until something changes.

Great

Great unique experience. Got an 80 min foot massage. 200 rmb. Really nice ambience and cleanliness. Was taken to a private room which has an on call attendant :-) free food and drink included in the price and you can order what you want. As much as you want I guess. Massage itself was great. Nice atmosphere and feeling. Theres also a DVD player I guess you can get a movie and watch during the massage.

The only improvement is: would have been great if the chairs reclined more. Discount for off peak hours. Prob busy during peak times and weekends.

Few of the staff speak English. Thankfully.
