Was highly recommended by my dad, so we headed straight for this place for dinner. The chicken was awesome and we ordered the special version and not the normal one which cost a bit less. It was flavourful n tender. The fatty pork was another hit! My son loved their fried rice, which was really affordable and scrumptious. Soup was average but still tasty. I tried other restaurants in HZ but this was my fave! If cost and distance were not an issue, i'd highly recommend this restaurant. It's not cheap but definitely yummy!

This place was a huge dissapointment. I can't stress how bad this place was. Ordered all their so called famous dishes. What a mistake that was. Begger chicken meat dry as chewing cardboard.you can tell its not made to order as it arrived in minutes after ordering. You would think that paying 300+rmb for this dish you would be expecting top quality food. No!! It was disgusting!! That fish... Theres more bones than actual flesh. I can't even be bothered to write about all the dish I had... Just going to sum it up in one word... Crap. If you like crap then feel free to eat here. The Service was non existence. Please dont even come to this place even if you have money to burn.

We had lunch at LouWaiLou and chose it mainly because it is famous. The new building is large and grand and there is sun drenched balcony dining overlooking the lake.

The food we were served was ok and service was prompt, but on the expensive side by Chinese standards.

Still, this is a safe option for those looking for local and Shanghainese style dishes. Visit for the ambience, location and history rather than the culinary experience.

We went to this restaurant due to its fame and for hairy crab. The food was just average but the price was quite high given the small portation and comparing with other restaurants in HZ. I think trying for once is nice but probably no next time. Service was not very good too, always need to call them several times to get something.

It is nice to know you can get bad Chinese food in China just like at home! Was there for a large event and the majority of the group agreed it was awful food. Some dishes weren't bad, but the majority resembled slop. Even the restaurant it self is underwhelming. Just because you are old doesn't necessarily mean you've remained good all those years. Give this place a pass.
