Strongly advise you not to go there for the following reasons: 1. Food is mediocre but the price is disproportionately expensive. Almost $200 per a tiny crab, I'm sure you can get it somewhere else at a much lower price but with much better services and dining experience. 2. I was appalled that I had to share my table with...

I actually visited the same restaurant at Fen Yang Road. Very classic decoration, good ambience, and attentive services. Best of all, the Crab Meat Xiao Long Bao is excellent. Even my wife, who is ultra-selective, gave very appreciative nodding after the first bite. After having tried several restaurants all over the city, I mark this one as the top of... More

It's a bit difficult to review this as users of Trip Advisor won't necessarily be the most likely to eat at such an establishment. It's pretty good, and famous with locals. To make it easy for you to decide whther.to.come here or not, i'll just give you the basics: Pros: -Atmosphere and layout are quite nice, despite being a bit... More

I was told that the best hairy crab restaurant in Shanghai is Cheng Long Hang so my son and I went but without any reservation. We were ushered to two seats at a large table which was already occupied I believe by a few different groups of guests who did not know each other. As our purpose was just to... More

September is supposedly the season to get hairy crabs. However, we were one week too early. Our hotel booked Cheng Long in the Jin Mao building at Pudong. The original one is actually at the bund. The one at Pudong is newer and has a stage in the middle where they play traditional Chinese music. Their menu is extensive so... More

We reserved a table and had a great time to enjoy crab. There are various Crab dinner sets. We chose the simplest one (around RMB 400). We planned to order some more afterwards. The service was excellent and responsive (which I felt was quite exceptional in Shanghai). The dishes came one after another. We simply could not complain anything about... More

This is a chain with multiple locations: we went to the one in Pudong, in Jin Mao building, about 500meyer from the Shanghai tower. We had a 10 course crab tasting menu, consisting of a small appetizer, 3 different crab soups, crab cakes, steamed crab (ask if they clean it for you!), noodles, and desert. The dishes were wonderful, somewhat... 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.
