The Food is German, for sure, and due to the many German visitors, the waiters can pronounce a few German words. But for me the food is just ok, nothing better. It is for the homesick Expats - And there are better German places in Shanghai for having a German Dinner. But if you more come for the Beer, this... More

We have been going this place for some years now (more than 5) and love coming back for the food and the homebrew beer. The restaurant is run by Chinese / German couple and the husband parent. They take pride in what is being served and so they do taste each dish at several time of the year making sure... More

The food is really like in Germany. Really tasty and the menue is really big! The waiter sometimes didn't understand what I wanted from her but she was really nice. The prices are ok. A little more that in Germany but not too expensive.

At Papa's Bierstube everything fits: Bavarian food, very tasty beer and a very, very nice atmosphere. Love the place. If you are German and you feel a little homesick, go there and enjoy a "German" evening.

Been here a number of times over the last year and is always a good place for beer and dinner. Unfortunately recently most if not all the service staff have changed. They are poor at best. Forgetting cutlery plates and just not very well trained. The food remains good but need to sort out the staff or it will not... More

Sure come here, however you can expect average, overpriced food anywhere down this street. Been here a number of times but noticed that recently it has got a lot better. Big serves but quite pricy. Efficient wait staff and nice food. Not excellent but not bad.

Neighbourhood Profile
Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle pockets that have their own unique attractions. The schools have formed pockets of international communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang. Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have built up over the years to cater to these communities. While living here means you are relatively far away from Shanghai’s usual hot spots, the large parks, spacious homes and proximity to great Japanese and Korean food keep the neighborhoods popular.
