years of restaurant at the city centre, the restauant provides traditional Shanghai food. The little meat bun and the noodle is a must to try. If you go at autumn, lake crab should be the core of your order. Pls book before go, always busy...More

This place is very average. The food is nothing special and very generic Chinese. The prices though are fairly reasonable. The best thing about the place is the decor. There are plenty of much better Chinese choices.

Very nice mandarin fish with noodles, very tasty (pork and crab) meatballs and terrific hot and sour soup. The green beans also were very nice.

good place for non-picky eaters. The one in Pudong Zhangyang Lu is good enough to take a try. Melongzheng is specialized in the local shanghaiese food

Well, shanghaiese cuisine is famous for it's strong flavors. This place just does not measure up. The braised fish was overly oily, The smoked duck was lackluster and dry, and the soup dumplings were flat and little soggy. The location and decor suggests traditional Chinese...More

Biggest disappointment in Shanghai. Over priced and definitely not worth it. Waaaay past its prime. Spring rolls were the worst I've ever had, in or outside of China. Hairy crab was quite good. Staff was all about standing around, talking and staring at the diners....More

The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple,
while the main artery of excitement and entertainment
is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French
Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign
residents but displays a more commercial character.
Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and
trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing
Road, but areas off the busy street have the same

A classic Shanghainese restaurant in a lovely old house on Nanjing Road (formerly the 1930s headquarters of the Chinese Communist Party). Staff are rather brusque and the dining rooms lack natural light, but the decor is grand and the food excellent. All credit cards accepted.
