This was our first trip to Nottingham and this restaurant was recommended to us when booking tickets to a show. What a bad recommendation. Maybe it's just us, but I did not enjoy my experience at Shanghai Blues and neither did my husband which is a shame. As soon as we walked in, my gut feeling was to go as we kept getting stared at as we walked to our seats but my husband said we should try the food. I now wish I had gone with my gut feeling. The food was ok, not the best I've tasted and the atmosphere was poor. We sat next to a table of 3 youths who did not, for the entire time we were seated, stop staring at us and talking and laughing in their own language. It was really uncomfortable. I really wanted to leave and ended up eating very little. It's safe to say we will never return to this restaurant again. I thought it would be an authentic experience, it turned out to be a terrible one. In fact I think the company who recommend this restaurant should take it off of their website!!
