After reading the reviews we were quite looking forward to this. At 220 Rmb for two it is difficult to be overly critical but overall we were a bit disappointed. Brocolli came steamed rather than stir-fried but was good. Deep fried oysters and the rice dish were good. Duck very disappointing. Staff seemed weary. Great flowers!

I was taken here while visiting on business by a family friend, a 10 year resident of Shanghai, and was very impressed. Generally I am not a fan of Taiwanese food, but every dish she ordered was light and tasty. Perhaps the pancake wraps were a little on the fragile side, but once you had shoveled them into your mouth with the yummy filling, they performed well! Three of us had an excellent early Friday evening dinner, with about 8 dishes, a bottle of reasonable wine, a few other drinks and two monstrous ice cream desserts for a grand total of 625 RMB. Very satisfied.
No doubt it's the sort of place that long time ex-pats will tell you isn't as good as it used to be, but for a visitor it could easily be one of the highlights of your stay in Shanghai.

I love the dumplings with the hot sauce. I especially love their appetizers (cold ones).
The servers are very attentive and polite. Most impotently, the restaurant is very clean and cozy. A cup of latte and the sweet almond soup are the best for your dessert choices.
One thing I love about this restaurant is its fresh flowers and plants. I am sure you will have a wonderful time there.

Charmant has a very nice decor and feel to it, the food is authentic and no MSG is used in all the dishes. unlike many asian restaurants in Shanghai, i don't feel thirsty after having dine there. Location is great too. Right in the heart of the french concession where lots of bars and nice shops are situated. They open till 4am; it's great to have a nice place for supper after some late night drinks.
