Had a very relaxed dinner with business friends at this half-hidden restaurant serving Shanghai style dishes. The food is tasty and varied. Private rooms make conversation and dining experience especially enjoyable. No comments on pricing, as I was invited

Recommended by my boss for their authentic Shanghai food. Indeed, not a disappointment. I came here for 2 days in row. Definitely not a romantic place to celebrate Valentine's Day (haha, I was here to celebrate Valentine's Day). Service so-so but the foods counter it....More

Hidden away off the main Road. Also called Shanghai Old Station Restaurant. Traditional style, but as with a lot of Chinese restaurants very little atmosphere. Food was very good, and staff extremely polite and helpful.

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.

Specializing in Shanghai local cuisine, Ye Olde Station Restaurant is located in a building constructed in 1926 which is the only remaining main part of the original building of the Virgin Mary Convent. The current collections on display in the restaurant include “old Shanghai antiques” in the 1920s and 1930s, along with the two historically significant train carriages, one courtesy coach manufactured by German Hanover Train Manufacturer in 1899, which was for royal use by Empress Dowager Cixi, and the other was manufactured by Russian Yekaterinburg Coach Manufacturing Company, and once served for Soong Ching-ling, or Madame Sun Yat-sen.
