Good variety for business lunch & dinner. Service is good & professional. Very comfortable environment with good quality Shanghai dishes & Dim-sum. Four of us have tried the Jelly Fish in Balsamic kind of sauce, cold drunk chicken and the traditional Shanghai smoke fish as the starter. Must order the Pork in dark soy sauce, should request for the eggs which is so delicious. And the river shrimps with is so fresh & tasty. Finally a traditional Shanghai style stir noodle with some Dim-sum. I love the fresh ginger apple juice too.

Our best friends brought us here to welcome us back to Shanghai. We ate in a private room at the back, but the bar and restuarant all were well designed and had a chic but warm feel.
Very good food and service as we ate our way through several courses. Good location easy to get to. Would recommend for tourists wanting safe Chinese food, though the clientele was mainly local Chinese.

Great Sunday brunch. The experience is very nice especially since we did not reserve and only waited for about 10 min.
The shrimp dumplings are mandatory and we also loved Shanghai dishes like smoke fished and noodles. Since we were a party of two we could not take so much advantage of a "all you can eat dim sum menu".
The restaurant has a clear preference of westerners, but that is part of the atmosphere.

Went here 3 times during my last Shanghai trip. The food are tasty with big portion (love the fried duck and tofu). The servers were honest with us as we said we're Moslem and don't eat pork/alcohol, they don't speak much English, but still understandable. menus are in English and Chinese so no problem. Almost everything we tried here are delicious, servers and managers are very nice and professional even tho on out last dinner the restaurant was full and it's clear that even the servers and the managers are a bit too busy to handle all the orders and request. Price are not cheap, but reasonable. perfect for business or leisure. Very nice ambience, a bit dark in the dinner setting. Oh, if you order fruit platter, when you eat the melon it's not sweet, but if you eat the melon after you eat the watermelon, the melon will taste very sweet. Idk why ;)

I brought home the plum candies they offered for free on the restaurant entrance, and everyone seems to love it :)
