As another treat, professor introduced us to the Grand Shanghai Restaurant located in downtown Singapore. Unfortunately, because TEL3 has not commenced service yet in September 2022, therefore we exchanged to a bus which took us to the restaurant’s door. We enjoyed lovely service as we...entered the restaurant, and had a lovely discussion with my professor. The food was very good- despite the soup being slightly too heavy on oil, the other dishes including the fried rice, the chicken, and the Shanghainese dim sums were all really tasty. One thing to commend on is the live performances in the restaurant- this was a really enjoyable experience!! Plus it added on to the fun during our dinner meal. The ambience was lovely and we had a very nice evening in the restaurant. Overall, the price was very reasonable in a lovely Chinese restaurant- and I definitely recommend this restaurant to other visitors coming over to Singapore. Very enjoyable evening!More

Service was a disappointment from the start. Where do I even start? We booked 2 private rooms 6 months in advance for a 70th birthday celebration for Sep’22. Only to be informed weeks before as we didn’t place a deposit to secure the booking, they...had to cancel our booking that was due to their internal mismanagement that was not properly communicated internally and trying to accuse me! Utterly disappointment!!! Out of goodwill, we settled for an alternative date. Come actual event day, service was hostile and horrible, food was utterly disappointing, cold and bland. The staff keep chasing us to end our party around 10 pm with black face while there were guests outside the private rooms! We will never come back to the restaurant anymore. Sucks big time!More

Good food, nice atmosphere, reasonable prices by Sing standards. So many restaurants in Sing have bad service nowadays but this restaurant is still as good as ever. My family's favorite for Sunday lunch...or dinner!!!

GRAND SHANGHAI At Kings Center has been around for some time & is a favourite with many Singaporeans! Very much a trip down memory lane for those that are familiar with the Old Shanghai, including the life entertainment! Service was decent, and forthcoming! A true...classic in many ways! Of course such food is best enjoyed with a group of friends, and a table of 10 is recommended to be able to enjoy the full menu, but a selection of 4-6 dishes will suffice for a smaller group! Traditionally you start with between 6-8 Appetizers! The classics include the Crispy Eel, marinated chicken & cucumbers! Turnips, Tofu skin filled & of course a classic broth! The steamed Fish stood out, loved the Camphor smoked duck, crisp prawns, outstanding the Fried Egg White with Crabmeat! Overall a very decent representation of Shanghainese Cuisine, certainly worth a visit! #cuisineandwineasia #CWA2022 #magazine #singapore #asia #foodandbeverage #food #gourmet #cuisine #foodagram #foodaddic #restaurant #chefs #grandshanghai #milleniumcopthorneMore

Chose this restaurant for our 10th-year anniversary dinner after seeing good reviews on TripAdvisor. The ambiance of the restaurant was great. There was no live band performing due to Covid. The restaurant was not crowded on a Friday night. The food was very good and...the staff was very attentive throughout our dinner. The price may be a bit expensive but acceptable to come here on special occasions. Love the smoked duck as there is really the smoked smell to it. Can skip the roasted chicken as it was pretty average. https://www.tripadvisor.com.sg/ShowUserReviews-g294265-d1145149-r841718976-Grand_Shanghai_Restaurant-Singapore.html#More

Good service from ms li Zong Miao despite shortage of waitress. Some dishes are not available in the night due to shortage of manpower. Hope they will increase the staff to cater for more guest.
