Description: Ruijin Cajun is the only restaurant in Shanghai (and maybe in all of China) dedicated to serving authentic Cajun and Creole comfort food. The menu is comprised entirely of the head chef's family recipes. The bar serves accurate reproductions of classic New Orleans cocktails such as the Hurricane and Hand Grenade. Food portions and drink pours are generous, and the prices are quite reasonable.

If you miss New Orleans as much as I do, you've come to the right place. Definitely a nice place to go if you need a break from China. This place has it all. Gumbo, etoufee, shrimp po'boys, and even hand grenades. They also have a "bypass burger" that comes between two grilled cheese sandwiches instead of a bun! Add the fact that there's the classic brass band music playing over the speakers and you can't beat it. Food was great. They make their andouille sausage in house and it tastes amazing. I had the swamp dog, which is a sausage sandwich covered in etoufee. I've also had the po boys. Just like the other reviews say, the owners are great people. We stayed and laughed there until a little after midnight. Good times...

Limited menu consisting mostly of andouille sausages with assorted toppings. Popular with english speakers. Lots of chalk writing on the ceilings

This place tops it off for southern cooking. The two owners, Matt and Nate, are top shelf for supplying a comfortable, casual atmosphere. I was fortunate enough to visit a few times and tried a few dishes and all were great. I would definitely recommend this place to others that love eating comfort food.

This place maybe a tad small but it packs a lot of punch. The owner of the place is friendly and tries to give you a free shot. Ok maybe just force it down your throat but being an expat in Shanghai this place reminds me of the local bar with great food. Great food! Great food! You have to go! Now!

I have been to Kangaroo Bar before and I was pleasantly surprised to see Cajun food being served!

At first skeptical, I saw some plates being served and the food looked awesome, so I ordered the Po'tine and the Jalapeno dog - both were ridiculously good.

Great job Kangaroo bar - I'll be back!
