Decor and service were underwhelming, but food was excellent. We had the chicken broth dumplings, the Sichuan style fried chicken, dry fried string beans, spinach noodles, and a mango yogurt drink. We had to ask for rice three times before we got it though. I especially liked the dumplings, chicken, and string beans. We didn't get a table by the... More

We went twice in our week long visit in Shanghai. We love their signature roasted chicken, the steam pork, steamed gourd with garlic. Service really varies with individual waiter/waitress.

The concierge at Ritz-Carlton recommended this place. She had previously recommended South Memory for Hunan cuisine and it was an excellent choice so we took her recommendation of South Beauty for Sichuan. We were not disappointed. The food was terrific. It was only packed with locals but mostly those out on a date or a special occasion. The service was... More

Located on the 10th floor of the Super Brands mall, this Chinese chain restaurant offers some of the best views of The Bund from Pudong. South beauty offers a number of private rooms (5 people plus), open space seating and a roof top dining area that's great during the summer. The dishes are generally of very good quality and cover...

South Beauty is an upscale Hunan and Sichuan (=Szechuan) chain restaurant. They are located at the 10th floor with a great view over The Bund, it is yours if you agree to a cover charge which is 200+ RMB per person. However, it is negotiable, or you can sit inside without a view which is a bit dull. The food... More

The food is not the best Sichuan food in shanghai, but the dining area and view is the best Sichuan in shanghai, if you are around tv tower area or shopping mall, good alternative to spend your dinner

My meal was very good, prawns delicious and the pork stir fry full of flavour. However my husbands vegetarian dishes not so good: fried rice was bland and basically uneatable. Service was slow, I would have liked another drink but by the time we could get someone to acknowledge us I couldnt be bothered. Even getting our bill was an... More

My wife and I ate here on our last night in Shanghai. Had hoped for a fancy night out, but service was slow and food was average. Ironically it took even longer to get the bill than the food! My wife's prawn dish was probably the best, while my vegetarian fried rice was bland, stodgy and questionable on ingredients. It... More

We ordered the scallion buns, the South Beauty rice and the vegetable noodle dish and they all had meat in them, though you never would've guessed given the descriptions and photos. :( Also, host services were very bad. Neglectful. Servers were nice though.

Neighbourhood Profile
Lujiazui
When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline, it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are speaking of. Shanghai’s most iconic buildings are located in close proximity to Lujiazui’s elevated ring road and swanky eateries. Sky-high shopping and chic bars fill the highrises around the area. As is characteristic of a world-class financial business district, some of Shanghai’s best malls and hotels can be found in the neighborhood. While everyone on the famous Bund side of the river gazes in awe at these amazing structures, all the buildings here, as well as Lujiazui’s riverside promenade, offer great views of the historic buildings all along the Puxi side. The Lujiazui park often hosts music festivals throughout the year, and park goers can party and stroll in the shadow of some of the world’s tallest buildings.
