“Ok for a mall offering”
Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

I rated average for a mall type establishment.

As others have said below, it's not much better than its previous rendition (Chop Chop) in terms of food quality.

Interior has been revamped very nicely though. A sort of art deco Chinese motif.

Staff is friendly, hurried but friendly. I wonder why? It wasn't very busy (I came a bit before lunch hour).

Food presentation was good.

I guess it's good if you're looking for south Chinese/Thai/Malay/Indonesian food but something better than commercial places yet not as authentic as a real restaurant.

I like authentic Chinese/Thai/Malay/Indonesian and therefore will not be returning.

Just to reiterate, it's not bad but it's clearly not authentic or above average in any way.

Please give this review a thumbs up if you benefited from it. Thx

“Worth a look”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Good food and excellent service which surprised me for a restaurant inside a mall. Good tables overlooking the ski run and more private tables for the business lunch.

“New Deco & New Name but Nothing Much has Changed......”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

While walking through the row of restaurants with my two kids searching for food, I was attracted by the new deco of Miu Shanghai so decided to give it a try....

We ordered the duck (serve with pancake & hoisin sauce), nasi goreng & chicken (lollipop? - can't remember the name of the dish)....

They may have changed the name & deco but the quality & taste is exactly te same as before - when they were called "chop chop".

Taste of all the dishes was plain. The duck was much too dry, hoisin sauce is a sweet sauce but it was a bit too salty and worse of all, the pancake still has all the powder (flour) on them. The nasi goreng was a little too soggy. Not sure about the lollipop but my kids seem to like that.

Overall it was very disappointing, I doubt I will come here again.

One plus point is that you get a good view of the ski Dubai while eating!
