Based in Fuzhou Lu next door to the House of Jazz and Blues, Shanghai Laolaos or Shanghai Grandmothers is a great place to have a proper Chinese meal in Shanghai, without a hefty price tab. As a family of four even taking visitors our biggest bill has been ¥450 around £45 that was a meal for six. The food is always cooked fresh so don't be surprised to have to wait for some dishes and in China the rice is served last so don't expect it to be one of the first things to arrive, among our personal favourites off the quite extensive menu (which is in Chinese, English and with some pictures) are Kofu (it's on the cold dishes page and the pic looks like bread in sauce, it's actually a type of bean curd in a BBQ type sauce, Gung Bao Chicken, Beef with Green peppers ( acually a,plate of beef and chillies but the beef is fab just wouldn't advise eating too many chillies). Stir fried aubergine, green beans with mince and minced beef with rice. There are loads more these tend to be the ones we always order as they are soo tasty!! It's a no frills restaurant and don't be surprised to have to queue, it gets very busy around 7pm. But if you want a really tasty meal at a really reasonable price. This is the place to go and a two minute walk from the Bund and a five minute walk from Nanjing Road a perfect place to end a day!!
