2 couples, ordered family plate with pork knuckle, sausages, goulash etc. 3 people drank alcohol, 3 people ate beef, 3 people had serious stomach issues a few hours later. But not those 3 who drank alcohol, the beef eaters. Next afternoon I walked by Zapfler...to share the experience. Duty Manager: "Did you go to hospital, do you have medical records? No? Well apparently it was not that serious." No, I didn't ask for a voucher because I don't want to eat there again.More

GREAT BEER, & WORST SERVICE in my whole time in SHANGHAI (10 years) ... Cam was our waitress - was completely rude to us from the beginning, and when I explain the reality that my kid has waited over an hour for MINI BURGERS, and...everything is slow, and she is bot looking after our table, she answers ‘this is life’.... Wow - I never get upset - I am livid ... I’m sure it’s a one-off, but I own a business, and news like this is uncomfortable, but necessary to be reported ... It’s a simple responsibility of the waiter to care for the experience of the tables she has served. For her, we are a bother ... come back on a quieter night and you will have a better experience! Remember it is GREAT BEER !More

Great place, great vibes! It has some of the best beers in Shanghai and they serve giant beers for less than ¥100. They always have DJs and music events on the weekend and definitely the place you want to be when it’s Octoberfest season.

We visited on a Sunday afternoon due to the location being at Found 158 (which can be pretty wild on a Saturday night). We sat outside. Music was fun, but too loud to enjoy conversation with our friends. Inside area comfortable, but again music was...equally as loud inside. Place appeared clean & tidy. Waitstaff was attentive. Husband had the Weisse (wheat) beer, he said it was average in flavor, but nice and cold (good aspect). The menu appears to have a nice variety, we did not eat at this visit.More

Incredible German food! The classic and traditional German sausages were flavorful and juicy. Also had the steak on hot stone plate. Zapfler makes refreshing craft beers, but if you are nota beer drinker they also have refreshing cider and Mate Iced Tea. Overall great vibes...in the restaurant and after they had a neon party event. Happening every Thursday I guess. Definitely going back to party more at Zapfler!More

When you go you gotta try the sausage platter along with one of the beers there. I recommend the strongest one. Get drunk quicker. However,service could be a lot better. At times we would try get their attention but they don't patrol enough of the...area. They can also try to smile a bit more.More

Very festive Christmas Eve night! They had a Christmas eve 4-course feast and it was excellent.

My friend and I wanted to have a Thanksgiving meal together and we tried Zapfler’s popular pork knuckle. Very delicious and a good substitute to turkey, as I don’t really like turkey anyways. The pork knuckle was juicy and skin was very crispy. It came...with a side of mashed potatoes and sauerkraut. Ordered a few drinks and craft beers as well. Overall a good time and we even met a few people visiting from the States. Great service from all staff.More
