If you are looking for western style food this is a great place to go. My colleagues and I had steaks and pork knuckle which were very good although the pork could have been bigger. Good selection of beers as well. Friendly helpful staff and affordable prices. Will definitely visit again.

You will be sightseeing all day long in Shanghai and when you are famished, this place; City Bull Steakhouse will hit the spot. The service was friendly; a rarity in China, and the food was excellent. I didn’t have the steak but instead we grabbed a couple of burgers and were fully satisfied!

Large variety of food. We had the blooming onion, French fries and filet Cajun beef skewers. Our friends had a salami pizza and beef stir fry. Everything tasted great and the service was excellent.

Been here 4 or 5 times over the past few months. Always enjoyed my meals. No more Canadian then anywhere else I suppose......breakfast and lunches are quite good. They have an Asian selection as well. Good value for the money. I have no issue going back

After having Chinese food for a while, we wanted to have a steak and a burger. The first time we were in this mall, we discovered this restaurant, but were unsure because it looked so empty. After some days passed, I was craving for a good beef steak. We gave this restaurant a chance and were not disappointed. The meat... More

Had lunch there a couple of days ago. Pro: Authentic western food, food tasted good, excellent salads, my burger was huge and overflowing. Good fries. Cons: Not sure what the Canadian theme is for? Meal prep was slow. I like free refills on soft drinks, none here. No real complaints, I would go back again for lunch.

Was in the area with a friend and had been craving some steak. Decided to take a chance with this place! As soon as we were seated I felt a slight panic at the fact that the place was empty... The menu seemed hideously overpriced but we were starving! My steak came with a sprinkle of vegetables and horribly lumpy... More

After several Chinese meals it was nice to have some Angus beef. The restaurant is very western and efficient. For salads and burgers it was relatively expensive, but most of the food in Shanghai has been expensive.

Neighbourhood Profile
People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.
