“Nice trendy eats but not cheap”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

While visiting family in Shanghai for a holiday we had a lovely dinner, it was not what we set out for but with restaurants booked out we where happy to get a table on a Saturday night. The garlic bread was a great start, and the three meals we got where all good, the suckling pig was rich and juicy, the roast chicken moist, well cooked and full of flavor, the roast beetroot very yummy. The gnocchi equally yummy and not heavy. The fried polenta was so tasty. We did not need any dessert. While not cheap we where happy with the service, while a little slow at times they where busy, but generally pleasant and not rude. We all enjoyed the meal, and could talk without shouting. Shanghai has some great local places to eat and some place fit anywhere in the world.

“Good food, nice interior!”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

We come here as a convenient alternative to Mr. Willis as it's conveniently located on the ground floor level of the Reel Mall and opposite City Plaza. Now that Summer's come, the outside seating terrace is open, which will be popular with many.

The food range has similarities to Mr. Willis but there are some nice differences too...and the food quality, presentation and flavours are just as good. The pizzas are based on the "La Strada" concept and range, and having enjoyed these pizzas at both restaurants, the ones prepared here at Henkes tend to have more generous toppings than those at Mr. Willis. But even so, both are fantastically yummy! Nice wine list - again with glass/carafe options.

Service is generally always good/consistent though from time to time there are a lack of smiles for one reason or another. But it always happens, and you shouldn't need for anything!

“A Shanghai Standard”
Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

Not sure why the contradictory reviews here, Henkes is going to be the gold standard for Western restaurants in Shanghai for many years to come. Pizza is a specialty, but just about anything on the menu is good. I live in Shanghai and visit Henkes at least once a month. Perhaps visitors don't realize that Shanghai is generally very expensive so value for money is not going to be a headline for any restaurant in this town. But if you want a good meal with nice atmosphere and consistent good and service, this is the place in town.
