If you need a break from Chinese food this is a great choice. Nice location and great service. The veal tartar was fabulous and the steak was very good.

Straight from a tin soup, Half size burger in a full size bun, Could count the overcooked fries in teens, cheese-less cheese garlic bread. Staff oblivious to complaints. Over sized prices in undersized value and service.

Been here several times over the last 3 months and it never disappoints the choice and quality of the menu is excellent. The steak and chips, garlic bread and jalapeño poppers are really good. For sure lots of options in hong mei road but it is for sure worth a visit. Service staff are also excellent.

I visited in the first week of October there, Friday evening, first had an beer and then had a dinner. I visited in top of the tower and went back to have a one beer. Excellent and very friendly service, great people. Food was also great. Definitely will visit there again if going to Shanghai. Greetings from Finland.

We've been coming here for 4 years (when it was Julie's) and I think this'll be the last time. The omelette was very raw inside: mushrooms, broccoli, and onions should be cooked thoroughly. The waitress seemed a bit unnerved that we arrived for breakfast and we had to prod her for service. On the bright side, the portions were good... More

Pretty good place for Steaks in Shanghai, in Laowai Jie (White people street, it says it all). Australian steaks. They claim that the steaks are vaccum packed, not frozen. This is fresh meat, meaning that fibers are still there, French will not enjoy the french aged type of meat which makes it so tender and tasty. For each kind you... More

They have, in my opinion, the best steaks in town! The staff is friendly and the owner is my friend! I have just read the reviews. I have had no problem with the "Happy Hour" drinks. In fact, I was there just this week and they were very clear on what is, or, what is not on the Happy Hour.

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.
