Went for dinner and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food, bustle of the place and prices. Given that the restaurant is near ground zero tourism I was expecting to be shaken over, but this was not the case. The dishes vary from RMB 20 to around 70 and eating on my own with two dishes, a juice... More

Nice Chinese restaurant around the corner from JinJiang Metropolo Hotel Classiq in Shanghai where we were staying. Good food, low prices, cheap beer.

In search of some vegetarian food, I was pleasantly surprised by some of Grandmother's dishes such as braised aubergines in soya sauce. Delicious! It was not busy when I arrived around 2 pm, and serving staff was not too animated, which gave the whole place a somewhat "limp" feeling. Price is right!

We were at Captains bar just across the street but we wanted Chinese food and we ended up here. Has all your favourite Shanghai dishes and the prices are reasonable. Was really busy for a Monday night and with decent food and good prices you can see why

We went to Shanghai Grandmother late so we only had 45 mins but the service here is quick and efficient. The food was fine - and amazing value comparatively for the area. This is set up like a diner and loads of locals use it so that shows you how good it is. I have only given it a 3... More

Still jet lagged and tired from an overnight flight from London, we stumbled on this place at 9pm on a Friday night. We recognised the name from TA and guide books and just decided to try it. Glad we did as it felt like a family and local restaurant. Good choice of food, served very quickly. Only downside was that... More

我是在电视上看到这家店的,电视里介绍说这家店在各大旅游介绍书上都有推荐。 好吧,于是我就和一个外地朋友去尝试了一次。作为一个上海人,我可以确定无疑的说,这家店的水平肯定是低于平均水平的。我点了一些标准的上海菜,太甜了,甚至比无锡菜还甜,简直无法下口。如果你认为这是上海菜的味道,那可就大错特错了。这家店的价格在这个地段虽然不算贵,但明显高于上海中档饭馆的价格。所以,这家店的性价比可以说是非常低的,来上海旅游的朋友还是尝试一下别的饭馆吧! I heard this restaurant on TV. It says it's recommended by many tourism books. So I tried it with a friend from Beijing. I went there at about 8 pm and it was full. I waited about 15mins and got a table. Then I ordered some traditional Shanghai cuisine. As a local, I can say the food is... More

It's highly recommend for all types of visitors. I've been to Shanghai many times but try this restaurant first time since now. There's an English with pictures menu which is very good for non-local. The taste is quite stronger than other Chinese restaurants that I've tried before in Shanghai. Also, the staffs are helpful and be gentle. This place is... More

I stay here several times. There is lot of choice and easy to understand for foreings, with the menu pictures, typical Chinise and Shanghai food but not extreme. The service is really fast and dishes are generally good. Price is low (300 yuan for 3) considering the Bund area and places nearby this offer one dish at this price. They... More

Staying in The Bund

Neighbourhood Profile
The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai International Settlement run by the British and Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has endured over time and is now found in the five-star hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
