If you like Shanghainese food or 'need' to take guests to a proper Shanghainese restaurant, Yuanyuan is that. The private rooms, the classics are all available. It's not cheap, it's nothing special, but it has a reputation so you won't disappoint your guests. Don't expect...More

I used to eat here frequently back in 2003-04. That time this was absolutely superb place for Shanghainese food. Good food, always pretty packed and slightly on expensive side. Service was a hit and miss thing. I did visit this place recently for business. We...More
