The free vegetable and side dishes is really good. We order meat for barbecue and some dishes to share we pay around 500+ for a dinner total of 7adults and 2 kids is really not pricey. Everyone leave the restaurant so full..

The staff hardly speak EN, but they are friendly and we managed to get all that we needed. I have been bere... More

Even though it was hard to find and that the metro trip wasn't the easiest one from downtown Shanghai, this Korean restaurant was definitely worth the trip. Great place to share good moments with friends with delicious, authentic food. The waiters were really attentive while being discrete, our glasses were always full without us noticing they were getting refilled. The... More

We waited over an hour for a table at the 1339 Wuzhong location, and I had serious doubts it would be worth it - but it was. Large portions of good quality meats, fresh vegetables and sides make it easy to overeat. Glass noodles were unbeatable, along with bulgogi, pajeon and miso soup - all excellent! Kim chi is outstanding.... More

Bonga or ben jia in Chinese is a trusted brand in Korea, and it does not disappoint in China. Book ahead as it has become very popular. Avoid th Puxi branch which is far out and overcrowded - instead Pudong is accessible and usually has a spot. Price - quality is very good, above all i pressed by the continued... More

This place is famous among the Japanese community for its genuie Korean beef and I am writing to testify that they deserve the fame. 1) Kalbi is impressive. Having discovered this "beef hall of fame", I would not go to ANY of the fishy and self-proclaimed Chinese "steakhouses" anymore! 2) Other plates such as glass noodles and kimuchi soup etc... More

I've been here a couple times and have always had fantastic meals. They have a great choice of dishes, and the wrap platter of vegetables that they bring out is gigantic. The side dishes are very tasty, the meats are wonderful, and the service is very quick (they cook your meats on the barbecue for you). Very highly recommended if... More

Best Korean food in Shanghai. The place is a bit hard to find since it is a building behind a tall building on the main street.

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.
