A local couple treated us to this authentic Shanghai din sum restaurant smack in the middle of the very crowded Yu Yuen market area teeming with buildings boasting of dark Chinese style roofs. Six of us got here for lunch early on 5/8 BEFORE 11 am and got seated downstairs main dining area right away. Our hostess ordered a large... More

Not great food but it was better than other meals we've had in this area. Pepper beef had a lot of fat, gristle and was too oily. The broccoli was nice in the steamed dish and beer was cold. The server was very good and not confused or flustered by our large group all wanting separate checks. The upstairs area... More

My husband and I decided to have lunch here on Sunday March 26, 2017. It was quite the experience. We waited about 30 minutes for a table. We were put into a private room on the 3rd floor. We sat with a Chinese couple who were not very friendly but spoke some English. We ordered crab and shrimp dumplings among... More

The restaurant is in the midst of one of the most crowded and touristy spots of Shanghai, especially for Chinese tourists, so I was very positively surprised by the quality of the food for reasonable cost. Authentic Shanghai food as far as I can tell. I advise to go not too late, get a number and walk around a bit... More

A local colleague took us for a meal in one of the private dining rooms on a recent trip. We were fortunate to have a room that offered a view of the garden below and the other architecture of the old town whilst being able to see the bright lights of Pudong in the distance. The service was very good,... More

Our guide took us to this restaurant for dim sum. It is large but very authentic with large round tables very close to Yu Gardens. Not overly smart but very pleasant. We had some great Dim Sum but my favourite were the gorgeously crispy and rich taste of the little handbags of food. See picture. Definitely recommend this as a... More

We ate there last night, 4-10-17. The four of us had our own private room with a lady working just for us. Had Peking/Beijing Duck, sweet and sour pork, sweet and sour fish, veggies, desserts... it was great. Our entire meal was about $142, which included about $45 for the private room. It was worth it. The food was excellent... More

Had dinner here by myself. The menu is extensive, and has items that to an American sound strange (bullfrog, sea cucumber, etc.), but there are pictures of everything and descriptions in English. I ordered beef in some kind of brown spicy sauce, scallops with mushrooms, and asparagus cooked with other vegetables. The food was good, with the scallops and mushrooms... More

We had to queue to get into this restaurant and it really wasn't worth it. I think it's very popular because of it's location (next to Yu Yuan Gardens). The food's good, but expensive.

A touristy local restaurant. Decided to bring my parents for lunch as it was their first time visiting Shanghai. We enjoyed the braised pork belly but was disappointed with the dumplings. Generally the food and service was good, not the most value for money!

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Shanghai’s original walls live on in the curve of the streets that serve as the border to the old city. An aerial view shows a clear circular outline and parts of the original wall are preserved as monuments to the ancient past. The main tourist attraction of Yuyuan (which means Yu garden, though it is often redundantly referred to as Yuyuan Garden) draws hordes of tourists every day, but wandering the streets around the complex reveals more exciting attractions such as food and antique markets. There are also streets lined with shops peddling everyday wares such as Chinese dining ware and craft notions that can be even more enticing to visitors uninterested in the usual tourist fare.
