This Restaurant should be up there with the best as the food is absolutely fabulous, the service is beyond par with all other restaurants and not sure why they are 87 on the ratings list and a restaurant like Lost Heaven is number 8, how is this even possible! The first night we went there for dinner (you must book... More

Make sure to book your seats in advance and place the order for this Peking Duck in advance and be prepared to wait 30mins for the dish to be served in rounds as demands dictates. Others dishes generally tasty and service is attentive. A bit on the pricey side.

Usually we try to dine at a variety of restaurants when we travel. On this leg of our 2016/17 trip, we found ourselves in a rainy city where we weren't prepared to catch cabs which, after our checkout experience was probably wise. Thankfully, Hyatt on the Bund provided a variety of dining options that exceeded my expectations of a hotel.... More

As an avid Peking duck fan, I was eager to try my first version of the dish in mainland China. Xindalu did not disappoint. As a solo diner and a walk-in, it's possible to order the duck straight away on its own (I ordered a half duck), which was a huge relief as I thought there might be a day-ahead... More

Excellent duck. better than most of the famous peking duck restaurants in beijing, better than the famous Da Dong and QuanJu De. However, other than the duck, i found most of the other food over priced. Some decent tasting items, but when you come here focus on the duck.

Ate here twice. Peking duck was very good although not the best I've ever had. Beggars chicken is cooked in clay pot. Amazing table side presentation! remember to order a day in advance. My FAV dish was the pork belly cooked in a pyramid shape. Served Chinese wines which were also very nice.

The Peking duck is superb as well some other shanghainese dishes. They have a fire wood oven to cook the duck. Excellent service.

Staying in Hongkou

Neighbourhood Profile
Hongkou
History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood. Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can still be found in buildings and park monuments. Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without taking you too far away from the city center. Some of the city’s best-preserved, ancient longtangs (laneway communities) and shikumen (Shanghainese lanehouses) are still in use as actual residences here. If you like to be surrounded by local faces, Hongkou is a great area to spend your time in. The football stadium, Duolun Lu and the North Bund area await should you need some entertainment.
