Madame Shanghai is the new Darlinghurst eatery and bar serving Shanghai street food and yum cha. Inside, old school elegance and Chinoiserie décor combine with a playful colour palette of malachite, blues and pinks emulating 1930’s Shanghai. The cocktail area overlooking Hyde Park is reminiscent of a Shanghai garden with lush greenery. The 90 seater is open six days for both dinner and a bar menu as well as yum cha lunch and dinner, Thursday to Sunday. Sydney’s east now has a new Chinese and yum cha destination.
