Restaurant needs a revamp . Food was average . Restaurant staff need to be a bit more courteous. During exhibitions around the area they are quite full .

If you are ever in Shanghai and crave for Punjabi Food. Than Huaihai Lu (Shanghai Punjabi Hotel) is the best place. Near to Pudong Airport and have good rooms to stay even.
