“OK option for a Chinese lunch”
Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

I had lunch in Ye Shanghai, this was the second time I eat here, and my feeling is that the place lost part of its charm and service.
We had lunch sets, which is minimum for 2 people and you can choose from several options.
The not so good part, is that even when we choose different appetizers, they brought the same ones. They said that the options should be the same for everyone (no idea why...)
The food was average/good. Nothing to surprise or amuse. The only good thing is the location (in Xintiandi). But even 20 meters away you have several options which are better in food terms.

Maybe the lunch set is just average, and dinner is better, but at least for lunch, I wont return.

“Dining out in Style”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

Spent a few days in Shanghai recently and ventured out looking for restaurants in the Xintiandi area. Stumbled upon Ye Shanghai. Warm welcome. Great selection of food. Not cheap but worth the premium

“Much better than before”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

7th or 8th trip to this old faithful spot, they have cleaned and shined it up nicely. We sat right across from a gracious Shanghai lady next to her piano , bursting out local hits. Food was a strong mixture of Shanghai favourites with some Peking Duck to please the visitors. Very fresh ingredients and the attentive service that it didn't have 2-3 years ago. To survive this long at Xintiandi, you have to do a few things right , and they are ,.

“Good Food”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

We ended up ordering way too much food, but we enjoyed every single bite and the red wine I had was amazingly good too,

My friends/colleagues drank Chinese beer, but as I don't drink beer I was worried that the wine wouldn't be good but it was and it complimented the food we had ordered.

We ended up being the last customers to leave the restaurant, this is how much we enjoyed the food.

All the stories I'd heard about being warry of Chinese food, disappeared, I can only say - try everything!!! There's for sure great food in Shanghai.
