Visit Laolao street not for some goods there, but like have some nice pictures, specially the old style building with red lanterns. But seems traffic jam most time. So if you not have enough time, better not go there.

We had our hotel call ahead and make a reservation and we were glad because it was pretty full on a Saturday night. The menu comes with pictures and an English title ( a little obscure at times ).
We had several different dishes and the beef hot casserole was my favourite but none were bad and the steamed broccoli with garlic was delicious. This was our first full day in Shanghai and we were easing into the cuisine, and this was a good local restaurant to start off our culinary adventure, with some traditional and non westernised chinese food.

We walked in on a Tuesday night and were sat down straight away. The menu is also in English with pictures, so it is easy to see what you order. The braised porkbelly is just WOW! And we also loved the Gang Bao Chicken. Because it is so close to the Bund, it's great to have a after-diner-walk along the river and enjoy the beautiful skyline!

We found this restaurant from our Lonely Planet Pocket Shanghai guidebook. It's not far from the Bund and Nanjing Road which makes it pretty central. We arrived late in the lunch period so didn't have to wait for a table. Food was excellent and amazingly reasonable prices.

We revisited the restaurant and would definitely go back again. Just wish there was a Chinese anywhere near as good back in Scotland!
