    Yang's Fry-Dumpling

    3 reviews

    I don't know if that restaurant is still there, but when i was living in Shanghai. My wife and I went there pretty much every week. It's so taste and not very cheap. But the restaurant is very small, and old. And you will be surprised how many people are waiting for seats. That's the most interesting thing in Shanghai, ...

    M on the Bund

    10 reviews

    Not sure about this. It's a great place to bring foreigners to, however the main selling point is the view and the terrace overlooking the Huangpu River. If you do go, eat a light snack before you go, because you definitely will not get full. If you're there just for drinks, found the right place!

    Baker & Spice

    5 reviews

    Ever in search of a decent pastry in Shanghai, I've stopped in Baker & Spice several times for a piece of carrot cake and a few hours of free wi-fi. Both the cake and internet access are excellent, however the Portman location tends to be pretty noisy, so it is not really the best place to get work done. I ...

    The Geisha

    5 reviews

    I'm not a huge sushi fan, got dragged to dinner for a friends birthday. Had the vegetable salad, and, man, it was awesome! I would definitely go back for it. It was a feast of broccoli, asparagus, red and yellow peppers, carrots, cauliflower and snap peas topped with fried lotus root and tossed in a vinaigrette. Delish. Then we went ...

    De Refter

    4 reviews

    A beer bar needn't be fancy. A beer bar needs beer--high quality, reasonably priced beer. (Oh and comfortable seating and decent noshing options don't hurt either.) De Refter has all the essentials without alienating any of Shanghai's alcohol enthusiasts. It's not a man cave of a sports bar nor is it a hoighty toighty cocktail bar (of which there are ...

    Although difficult for the uninitiated to find among the back alley lanes of Taikang Lu, Kommune is worth searching out for not only its simple, yet tasty food and drinks, but also for its unique setting at the epicenter of Shanghai's creative quarter. Outdoor seating is usually overflowing with artsy locals and hipster expats, but don't forget to check out ...

    吉士酒家(天平店) - Old Jesse Restaurant

    3 reviews

    By "old", we mean "original" since now there are more chains of "Xin Jishi" (aka Jesse). As guessed, the original is the best of the bunch for traditional Shanghainese cooking. Go for the braised pork in brown sauce!

    Din Tai Fung

    2 reviews

    Enjoying Shanghai dumplings in Shanghai is a no brainer. So is making the trip to Din Tai Fung, the international dumpling house that has dumpling making down to a science. This is not a hole in the wall, so it's a bit expensive for China. Worth it, though.

    Kota's Kitchen

    3 reviews

    Purportedly the best ramen in Shanghai, my co-workers and I just had to try it out. The 45 RMB tonkotsu ramen was delicious, even though the noodles could be a little more chewy. The broth was wonderful and the pork was thick and fatty. There are also complimentary pickled veggies with lemon mayo and sweet, spicy sauce. The decor was ...

    Jia Jia Tang Bao Huai Hai Dian

    3 reviews

    Best xiao long bao I ever eaten. If you think dintaifung is good, this tastes like heaven. Don't be afraid to pay 99yuan for its crab xiao long bao because you will regret for not ordering that. Don't forget to order the sauce.

    Guyi Hunan Restaurant

    Considered as a fine chinese cuisine in town. They have a great pork (I think they call it hong shao rou). You can't be wrong in this restaurant

    Ajisen Ramen

    5 reviews

    The kimchi beef ramen is pretty good but not really spicy despite the spicy level written in the menu. The enoki mushroom rolled with sliced beef is good too. However, you will have to call the waitress pretty often to fill you the tea.
