Foursquare Tips

  • still the best Shanghai food ever!
  • Skip the lines by coming after rush hour on a Sunday night
  • Overhyped or maybe Shanghai cuisine is just not my taste.
  • Authentic Shanghainese food, reservation recommended. We liked the (drunken chicken), (crab roe jelly noodles), (Kao Fu), (fried yellow fish). (smelly beancurd) was not to my taste.
  • Nice shanghai local food in a local style old building. Taste good but always crowded and small table and small building. Almost tourist worldwide here, not cheap. Try and if you're a foreigner
  • Better make a reservation before you go. Dining space is cramped, but food served there is pretty good.
  • The best Shanghainese restaurant in the world. I argue you to find another better.
  • crab roe potato soup
  • Make your reservations. Easily the best Shanghainese food i've had in Shanghai so far. Charming decor.
  • Salty chicken not as good as other restaurants, but the chicken soup and crab roe tofu are yummy!
  • Order the pidan doufu, wine chicken and salted chicken!
  • Braised pork belly is really good
  • Extremely wide range of classic, traditional, Shanghainese dishes. Delicious food! Good service and accepts foreign credit cards.
  • Have to try the fish head and the shrimp. Everything was very good
  • Authentic Shanghainese Food. Really delicious.
  • Really good food but quite oily... This is how Shanghainese food is like though... Remember to get for dessert.
  • I appreciate this truly authentic restaurant. One of the best among shanghai with no doubt.
  • Tianping Lu is still the best but if you can't get a reservation and visiting, one of the mall versions will do. Ambiance of the original is much more fun and local.
  • iapm
  • Drunken crab (cooked) is good! So is the crab roe jelly if you love it.
