“A GOOD PLACE FOR DRINKS AND DINNER”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

I went to Rapscallions last month with two friends for drinks and dinner.
While it is probably one of the best western restaurants in Shenzhen - compared to the restaurants in Hong Kong it would be rated as average. Dont get your expectations up too high. However the overall experience is still worthwhile and I would return again.

Our visit was mid-week and the place was not very busy - but started to fill up later as we were leaving.
The staff were very friendly and attentive.
The vibe was good - relaxed and fun.
The decor was pretty tired.
The food was OK. We had the pizza which had a 2 for 1 special. That was good.
We also ordered the giant ribs at the suggestion of the staff. These were tasteless. very poor - we didnt bother to eat them. The fries were ok. Overall the food was average.

“A bit of sanity in SZ”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Found Rapscallions via Tripadvisor reviews and was not disappointed. Had a Sunday evening to kill with a colleague and cant fault the place. Cosy, great service, good beer selection (incl. Duvel) and the wings are killers. A nice change from your typical soulless SZ bar.

“Drink and eat”
Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

It's my first time Shenzhen and I just wanted a drink and food that wasn't Chinese. Found this bar on trip advisor. Looked up their website and showed the taxi the address. I was dropped outside the door. It's located in an expat area with a couple of clubs. Nice place for a drink and pizza.

“Great atmosphere. Good Food.”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

I checked out Rapscallions during a recent trip based on the positive feedback from others. The atmosphere was great and, like many others have mentioned, their pizzas are excellent. I ordered the Mexican Pizza, which was unique but very good and I would recommend it to others. Two callouts that I would share with other: 1) the portions are large. I ordered fries to go with my pizza and it would have been difficult to eat either one individually. As a pair it was impossible. 2) Apparently it starts to get busy around 10pm. I was one of the only customers in the bar at 6:30pm and the waitress said that 10pm is when it starts to heat up. This is probably par for the course in Shenzhen, but it was helpful for me.
