Urban Soup Kitchen is developing a nice niche of good food for basic prices as an alternative solution. Also a fun space to sit in, quick service. Enjoyed a chicken and avocado sandwich along with pumpkin soup. Would definitely go to Urban Soup Kitchens again....More

This is some good home made style (like momma made) soup. Great rich flavors and varieties without the worry of chemical laden MSG fake soups common in China. I am VERY hesitant to eat Chinese soups made of tap water and MSG with plastic noodles...More

I am a big soup fan but have always been disappointed, the soups are plan and a bit lacklustre. I you want quick simple food then this is a good place and not expensive, although the portions are not big. There is very little seating...More

The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a
carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled
with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area
below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most
fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can
afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and
shops along Madang Road. The pleasant Taipinghu Park
provides the area with green space and is also home to
