I ordered a Szechuan beef noodle dish and it was excellent. It was spicy (which I expected and wanted) but not over the top crazy. The service was very attentive.... More

We had the Peking Duck, 3 of them for a group of 10 people. We ordered them 2 days in advance and it was totally worth it! I think it's a 90 minute wait if you order the duck when you arrive. I've tried a couple of places in Shanghai, and I gotta say this is the best duck I've... More

The food is always fresh, flavorful and delicious! Great Sichuan dishes if you want spicy. My favorite is the Peking Duck. You need to order it the day before. The duck is flavorful and tender and they will prepare it at the table. There is an open kitchen and a big table right next to the kitchen where you can... More

I had a late dinner on my own there, ordered 2 starters (Jellyfish salad and Sauted mushrooms) and a special dish of pork-crab filled boiled dumplings. Very delicate seasoning even if not highly creative, I enjoyed it very much. The staff speaks English and is very attentive. The atmosphere and decor are pleasant to the eye - I will gladly... More
