A good restaurant for dining after few hours of hanging out in The Bund and Nanjing Road. The ambiance is good and service is nice. Me and two Chinese friends were there. The fried noodles with beef and pork was good. Outside you can see old Shanghai photos and and old carriage, which gives a nostalgic feel of old Shanghai..

We are Hongkongers and we often have Shanghai cuisine in Hong Kong. We thought we could have "more genuine" Shanghai cuisine in Shanghai. We wrongly believed a well-known food critic, and we went to this restaurant. To be fair, there were two restaurants in Shanghai bearing the name Jishi (吉士), one is Xinjishi (新吉士) (meaning "New" Jishi) and the other... More

Terrible food, terrible service & too expensive considering the poor quality. We ordered a few expensive dishes of beef fillet & seafood & they were a total let down. Shanghainese food I'm Melbourne costs half of this and 10 times better!! Please don't waste your holiday experience on this awful place

Husband and I came here for lunch during our Shanghai stay, location is very conveniently situated in the posh xintiandi area, decor is nostalgic old Shanghai feel, waiters mainly are young guys of average service, non-friendly and expressionless on their faces, food is good but far from excellent, we had some basic Shanghainese dishes, such as steam eggs with clams,...

Local Shanghainese friends brought us to this restaurant, which we enjoyed a great variety of dishes, starting with the cold appetizers, then hot appetizers then other main dishes. Even the roasted peanuts in seaweed dust was amazing. Love the beancurd in crabmeat sauce, the smoked fish (a specialty dish in Shanghai), abalone in soup, lotus root stuffed with sweet sticky...

This is for the Xuhui District branch (No.28 Taojiang Rd.) Located in a trendy section of the French Concession (near the American Embassy), this is more than just a pretty face. The food is exceptional. We loved the Scallion Pancakes, Crabmeat Dumplings, Grandma's Braised Pork in Brown Sauce, Shrimp & Crab entree, and Bok Choy with Mushrooms. The service was... More

Staying in Xintiandi

Neighbourhood Profile
The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and shops along Madang Road. The pleasant Taipinghu Park provides the area with green space and is also home to Shanghai Fashion Week twice a year. It’s not all glitter and glamour, though, as the rise of Danshui Road has given the Xintiandi area a shot of toned-down character. Small bars and cafes, mostly owned by locals, have people hanging out in a formerly quiet, unassuming part of the neighborhood.
