In China, if you want real traditional food and ingredients you go to the small local markets, if you want fancy imported food items you go to a fancy department store. Here they have traditional Chinese food but not a very good selection nor the real thing, and the imported foods were limited. It was an upmarket food shop that's... More

Fresh clean only 12 yuan for a fresh bowl of dumplings in a clear soup. Pictures to point at lovely people all smiling. Food fresh and delicious. 2nd floor with a place to sit tore group after extreme shopping experience.

Nothing much worth visiting. Has loads of small snacks and some produce purchased by weight. Import section is basically non-existent. There is a decent selection of vitamins (seems odd to me though). I guess if you have some time to waste and want to try random snacks...it was clean, but bring nose plugs - they sell durian.

This is not intended as a review. Just a correction. For Tripadvisor staff: I think it's supposed to be "foodmall"

Staying in People’s Square

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.
