I stay here several times. There is lot of choice and easy to understand for foreings, with the menu pictures, typical Chinise and Shanghai food but not extreme. The service is really fast and dishes are generally good. Price is low (300 yuan for 3) considering the Bund area and places nearby this offer one dish at this price. They... More

The extensive menu made it easy for us to accommodate a wide range of palettes -- from those of us interested to try bullfrog, turtle and tripe, to those who wanted to stick to the familiar cashew nut chicken. Turned out the braised pork was the winner. The portions were more filling than anticipated, we definitely over ordered but enjoyed... More

Walked past this place while exploring the Bund and was able to make a reservation to come back later in the day. Nice atmosphere, good service, food better than average but nothing special. Worth a stop if you are looking for an easy place to eat near the Bund.

I found it hard to beleive the previous reveiws as the food was terrible. The service was friendly enough and prices appeared very cheap, but when trying the food, its overpriced. You will find many better places much better local to this area. Hate to be negative, but its as we found it.

This place was close to where we were staying, so the reviews didnt seem too bad.thought why not. The first dish arrived and was chicken you could clearly see was raw and had visible blood, no way were going to eat that, so they laughed between themselved and took it away. It returned a short time later after being in... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend of mine, the food was honestly mediocre. The food is essentially what you would expect in most Shanghainese restaurants. The variety of food offered is pretty wide and the flavour is decent. The dishes were lacking in portion. I think this place is a bit pricey for what it offers in food but... More

Yummy food - definitely get the ribs. A note that this is cash only up front. We loved the eggplant as well, which was suggested in other TripAdvisor reviews. Service was fine and they definitely spoke English. It was nice to see a mix of tourists and locals eating there. They close somewhat early on weeknights so make sure you... More

Nice food and not too expensive. Do note that they only accept UnionPay credit card, not VISA, not Master, not Amex etc...! So have ready cash for your meal.

Upon my first visit... More

Staying in The Bund

Neighbourhood Profile
The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai International Settlement run by the British and Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has endured over time and is now found in the five-star hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
