  • Cloud 9 Sky Lounge

    Shanghai Restaurants

    Cloud 9 is located at the 87th floor of Grand Hyatt Shanghai. It is a great place to enjoy the skycrapers at Pudong area with a seat enjoying the music and the drink. Although the drink is quite expensive, it might still be an option to stay comparing the expensive entrance fee of the other observatory at Shanghai.

    This very famous restaurant was a real pleasure to dine at after a stroll around YuYuan Garden offering many of the local dishes such as the fresh River Fish, Crab, Eel, Lotus Root etc and the Dumpling!

    Shanghai Restaurants

    you can buy drinks and refreshment and even eat streetfoods or a full meal at the food court. this food court cum street stall is just located across the street facing Oriental TV Tower and my suggestion is that you eat and buy drinks here first before embarking on a jaunt to Oriental TV Tower as the prices of the food and drinks here are cheaper...

  • M on the Bund

    Shanghai Restaurants

    I have to say this place isn't bad, but it isn't the best in Shanghai like everyone says. The service is OK, the wine list is extensive and expensive, and the menu is a bit short on the selections. So after going to Laris (please read my other travel tip) the night before we were disappointed with the food here. The place was crowded and loud, and...

  • Tandoor Indian Restaurant

    Shanghai Restaurants

    The interior of the restaurant is good but thats about all that is good. Its well over priced and i was even overcharged for something we did not order so check your bill. You even have to pay for a glass of water. Despite being so expensive no one smiles or makes you feel welcome. No one came and asked if the food was ok. The only other nice...

  • Xin Ji Shi / Zin Tian Di Restaurant

    Shanghai Restaurants

    The ambiance is perfect, truly Shanghai. Even my Shanghainese friend swears that this is still the best local place to eat, at a great location - Xin Tian Di! The Grandmother's Pork is a must have, it is slowly cooked, very tender, super tasty, and truly a taste of Shanghai. A gastronomic feast! We also have the bamboo shoots vegetable dish, and...

  • T8 Restaurant

    Shanghai Restaurants

    Why do they have to speak English? They won't even answer in Putonghua when spoken to in their native language, until the last minute when leaving, then they were all smiles and friendly. Were they being happy that we left finally? Yes, it is not easy for the young waiters to be polite when using English. Manager please note: Let them use Putonghua...

    Shanghai Restaurants

    In Shanghai, you're not far from great freshly brewed coffee. There are lots of coffee places, some foreign and some domestic. You can find the familiar Starbucks at the Chenghuang Temple, located among the traditional Chinese architecture as seen in the picture.

    Well this is a famous teahouse in Shanghai in the YuYuan Gardens. It is situated in the middle of a small lake on poles, and is very hard to miss! It is right next to the famous zig zag bridge! A quick piece of information..do you know WHY it's zig zagged? It was made like that to stop the ghosts from following you because ghosts can only walk in...

    Shanghai Restaurants

    A restaurant shaped like a dragon lit with neon lights parked just below the Nanpu Bridge. The exterior and interior are very grand & just like dining on an emperor's feast. Order the famous hairy crab dish in autumn months.

  • Mei Long Zhen

    Shanghai Restaurants

    Established in the 1930s, Meilongzhen is a Shanghai institution, having been visited by countless foreign dignitaries, as is evident from the photos on the walls. It serves Shanghainese and Sichuanese cuisine. Food quality is okay and service so-so. The Shanghainese dishes are fine, but I've had better elsewhere.

  • Mexico Lindo

    Shanghai Restaurants

    My buddy has been living in Shanghai for five years and everytime he goes back to the States, he eats Mexican food until he gets tired of it, because as he said: "There are no good Mexican restaurants in Shanghai". Well, I took him to Mexico Lindo, and he can't say that any more. Not that Mexico Lindo is the best Mexican food in the world, but it...

  • J's Pudong Japanese Restaurant

    Shanghai Restaurants

    J's first restaurant opened in Xintiandi a few years back and was one of the first upscale sushi restaurants to open in Shanghai. Since then, they added a second location in Pudong's Super Brand Mall, right across the street from the Pearl TV Tower. So, you are probably thinking - all you can eat sushi inside a mall? Is Mao off his rocker? Well,...

  • Le Garcon Chinois

    Shanghai Restaurants

    For the price, I wouldn't eat here again. I've had better. Or maybe because the Indian restaurant a few meters away (Tandoor Restaurant), I felt, served better tasting food. I don't remember much from this restaurant, except that it was too expensive. What I do love eating, though, is this pork dish in spicy red sauce that you put on flat bread. I...

  • Food Paradise

    I wanted to give recommendations about restaurants I have been in Shanghai. Unfortunately, I just can share some pictures. Most of the restaurants do not have a namecard in English and I can't give you address or even the name of the restaurant. The best way to explore the incredible cuisine in Shanghai is to walk around the city and enter the...

  • Best Thai in Shanghai

    This Thai restaurant is located at the intersection of Huaihai Zhonglu and Fuxing Zhonglu, opposite the trio of Charmant, Laifu Kitchen and Cotton Club. It's somewhat "hidden" as the restaurant is in a 2-storey house of its own. This is part of the charm of this restaurant -- in the warmer months, diners can sit at tables set up in the restaurant's...

  • Nice ambience in old hotel

    There are many Xiao Nan Guo Restaurant in Shanghai, as it is a chain restaurant. The one I went was located in a very quiet and old hotel - Ruo Jing Hotel. The hotel building is European style. Be sure you pick this one for dinner. I have few local shanghaiese dishes and they are all good. See more pics for dishes.

    This place is REALLY popular. Unfortunately, my best picture shows a bunch of non-Chinese at the service window. What it didn't show were the 100s of people lined up off to the right waiting to get the order in. In trying to figure out how long I'd have to wait in line, I noticed a stair way behind the stall that, when followed, led to the "on the...

  • Fairly Fantastic Food

    The name of the restaurant means "Eight Fairies Hall". Whether there're fairies here or not remains to be seen, but the Shanghainese food here is certainly very authentic and tasty! Locals say that this is one of the best restaurants in Zhujiajiao, and after eating here, I'd agree.The restaurant entrance is unassuming (you'll have to recognise the...

This traditional snack has become a tourist commodity -- everyone is jumping on the bandwagon and saying that theirs is the oldest, tastiest, most traditional, most famous... whatever!Anywhere you look, there'll be the namesake "granny" sitting prominently in the...

  • Nanxiang Xiaolongbao Where They Belong

    Countless restaurants, all serving the local specialty of Nanxiang xiaolongbao (little steamer dumplings), line the street outside the south gate of Guyi Garden. I didn't find any that particularly stood out. Restaurants were typically local (no English signs or menus), simple and down-to-earth. Many restaurants also have a takeaway gift option....

  • Shanghai's Namesake Xiaolongbao

    Shanghai's namesake xiaolongbao are the main draw of this famous old restaurant. However other Shanghainese dimsum are also very popular and most importantly, yummy!There're 4 sections to the restaurant, listed here as no.1 to 4, from cheapest to most expensive.No.1 is the takeaway window downstairs beside the 9-Zigzag Bridge, which ALWAYS has a...

  • Best Pizza and Pasta Near Fudan...

    This little cafe-like restaurant has only about 4 tables -- actually, I hardly ever see any more than 2-3 tables occupied at any one time. Since the food is really good, I can only imagine that they're doing a roaring delivery business, especially since they're located a stone's throw away from Fudan University's international student dorms.In any...

    This is the 4th xiaolongbao restaurant that I'm writing about. -yawn- Not again, you say!Ding Tai Fung is world-famous for their xiaolongbao and other Taiwanese-style dimsum. Not to be confused with the local xiaolongbao, these xiaolongbao are rather "mini", though the skin and soup filling are certainly no less succulent and tasty in their own...

  • Strong Hunan Flavour

    This restaurant seems to serve more foreigners/expats than local Chinese, nevertheless it's still very worth eating at. Dishes are a little more innovative but portions somewhat smaller than most Hunan restaurants, but if the restaurant's crowded, be prepared to wait a rather long time to get served. That said, be prepared to wait for a table if...

  • Just a Few Streets Away

    The original name of the restaurant simply meant "the 3rd road". What then, is the point of reference? Local, mainly middle-aged or elderly Shanghainese would call Nanjing Lu (the well-known pedestrian street) the "big road". As the next east-west street to the south, Jiujiang Lu was then "2nd road". Hankou Lu, which this restaurant is on,...

  • Intriguing Entrance, Cutlery and Toilets

    I suppose I'll have to classify this as "eclectic", since it's not totally Chinese (it's more innovative and fusion), and it also doubles up as a cafe/bar. Food is served till about 2300, after that is drinks-only.This restaurant is the "sister" of Shintori which serves Japanese cuisine next door. Elsewhere in the French Concession, on Yueyang Lu,...

  • Local Grapevine

    I have NO idea what grapes have to do with the dishes at this restaurant! The only connection with the restaurant name has to be the fake grape vines at the entrance.Other than that, though, this restaurant serves local Shanghainese cuisine for a pretty reasonable price.Apart from locals, you also see a lot of foreigners here.The restaurant is...

  • Another Good Xiaolongbao Place

    Only different types of xiaolongbao are on the menu; apart from seaweed+egg-drop or chicken/duck blood soup (the latter might be too much for most Western travellers to stomach), and glass bottles of Coke, Sprite and Miranda Orange.Possible options are pork-only (6 RMB), shrimp/chicken+pork (7.5 RMB), crab+pork (16.5 RMB), chicken-only (8.1 RMB),...

  • A Befitting Name

    One of the best seafood restaurants in Shanghai, located in the posh district of Xintiandi -- no need to wonder about the price! However if you have the money to splurge, and like seafood, hesitate not to come here. The "unimaginative" and brazen restaurant name undoubtedly does justice to the quality of the food and service.The seafood is fresh,...

  • Best Red-Braised Pork in Town

    IMHO Yuanyuan serves up the best red-braised pork (hong2 shao1 rou4) in town -- going by locals' tastebuds, this is certainly one of the top 5 in town. It looks fatty, but it won't taste like that! Chefs pick pork which has a fat/lean ratio of 2:3, so it's still more lean than fat. This restaurant uses rock sugar instead of white refined sugar, and...

  • Unpretentious Home-Cooked Fare

    Tucked away behind a non-eye-catching door on Jinxian Lu, you'll never suspect that this's one of the best places for unpretentious, honest-to-goodness, home-style Shanghainese cuisine. There's no menu, just ask the friendly auntie (female boss) what's tasty. You won't regret following her advice!They also give a small appetiser and some fruit...

  • Kewlest Japanese In Town

    This has to be the absolute kewlest Japanese restaurant in town. I forgot to take photos of the interior, but it's somewhat like an open-concept restaurant, feels a little like a very chic warehouse kind of setting.Prices are high and portions are small. Don't come here if you're on a budget! Service is quite good though.

  • Off-The-Beaten-Path Cantonese Dimsum

    Tucked away in a serviced apt on a small road, this is an unlikely place for Cantonese dimsum, but it's one of the more value-for-money, yet delicious spots in Shanghai. Apart from Cantonese dimsum, the restaurant also does Cantonese dishes, especially seafood. The durian puffs (liu2 lian2 su1) here are the kutest I've ever seen in Shanghai --...

  • Smoothies, Salads and Sandwiches

    Simple yet comfortable decor, brightly-lit and clean. Diners can enjoy free wireless Internet access.All dishes are made on-the-spot with organic ingredients. Portions are big... a salad could be shared between 2-3 people.They also have breakfast sets (Western or Chinese). IMHO the Western ones are good value, the Chinese ones are overpriced.Asian...

  • Croaking About Shrimp and Dumplings

    I originally thought that this would be a small hole-in-the-wall restaurant, but boy, was I astonished when I found it and realised that it was quite a mid-sized one instead! This restaurant is perhaps one of the best (as locals say) for Shanghainese cuisine -- it was definitely the case as the 20-something-year-old restaurant was full of diners...

  • Great Value-for-Money Indian Buffet

    At about 80 RMB/pax for a dinner buffet including free-flow beer, this has to be one of the best deals for Indian food in Shanghai. There're 3 outlets in Shanghai, but the one that's most accessible to travellers is the one at Xiangyang Nanlu, opposite what used to be the infamous Xiangyang Lu "fakes" market.The buffet usually provides about 10...

  • Dripping With Chilli

    There're a 3 outlets of this fiery hot Hunan restaurant, with 2 being in the French Concession and more accessible for most travellers.

This restaurant is perhaps the most famous and popular Hunan restaurant in Shanghai...

  • Fusion Fare in the French Concession

    This has to be one of the most high-class restaurants that I've been to in Shanghai -- something I don't get to do often at all! The restaurant is actually a joint venture between Singapore's Tung Lok Group and Shanghai's Jinjiang.No touristy Bund or Pudong view here, no hearty portions of food, but what you get is attentive service and exquisitely...
