Description: Welcome to La Crêperie!Our restaurant was born in July 2007 in Shanghai. Its first aim was to bring the French community some of the most typical food from Brittany; what, as Bretons, we could only consider as a real lack in this huge city where we could already find a large variety of international cuisine… It was also our will to give the Chinese an opportunity to taste our authentic and original recipes.Today, not only the French but also many foreigners and more and more Chinese citizens are becoming regular customers. Coming to La Crêperie is about enjoying our great specialties of course. But we are also very pleased to introduce the Brittany region to the many travelers and dreamers visiting our place.This is why coming to La Crêperie is as if you were escaping from Shanghai for the time of your stay, enjoying our numerous very authentic galettes, crêpes and even fresh oysters from Riec sur Belon (famous in Brittany). You will also have the chance to drink various apple ciders while listening to Brittany traditional music in a friendly atmosphere and nautical decor.After Shanghai, Honk-Kong and Saigon were the other ports where La Crêperie decided to open. You will find there the same concept but you may discover other specialties from our region prepared by our Brittany Chef.So, if you are in Shanghai , Hong-Kong or Saigon, and willing to quit the busy and noisy life of the streets, look for the lighthouse, the symbol of Brittany that we borrowed to show you the way to safety and comfort…Welcome on board,Kenavo! The Team of La Crêperie

The food is amazing. The wait staff is very friendly. Definitely worth the price. Highly recommended. Probably best to make a reservation.

Tony and the last from Paris were helpful.

We come to La Creperie on a fairly regular basis and I have never been disappointed in their excellent crepes, both the savory and dessert varieties. (And between my husband and me and the various friends and family we've come with, we've tasted probably 3/4 of their menu at one time or another.) We also really enjoy their cider -- it's a perfect accompaniment to the crepes.

Located in the French Concession (it's about a 15-minute walk to the line 7 subway entrance), the ambiance of the place is quite pleasant and cozy, and is especially delightful on a rainy or chilly day. The service can be a little hit or miss, but it's usually more than adequate and they are always friendly. The menu is in Chinese, English and French, and the staff speak some or all of the same. The prices are very reasonable, and they offer lunch and brunch sets which are a really excellent bargain. The restaurant can get a little crowded at times (especially during weekend brunch) so I recommend making a reservation.

If you enjoy authentic, delicious crepes in a charming setting, I think you will love La Creperie.

Really nice atmosphere and decor. The creps are really yummy (thanks Chef!) and it feels almost as being in France. I recommend!

Crepes are tasty and usually at least one table of people speaking French adds to the atmosphere. Which helps me forget the so-so service as of late. Definitely miss the previous manager who was a great host and quick at service recovery when they got busy. The kitchen area seems a bit out of control with dirty dishes coming precariously close to food prep. Last visit found a piece of bone in my sausage. Took the time to tell the manager, but he barely acknowledged the feedback. No checking if I was okay, no service recovery efforts, not confident he will follow-up. Enjoy the crepes, skip the sausage.

Hi,

I would like to start by saying sorry. This kind of behavior is unacceptable in our restaurants. What we care the most is our customers satisfaction and we really dropped the ball here.
We will make sure that will not happen again.
We do appreciate your feedbacks and will work on it.

Thanks a lot.

Sincerely,

Thomas

Ok this will not transport you to Paris but the quality is good and ingredients fresh. Service is a little thin but they do try.
