Just in the back of the Bund, this restaurant in traditional style specializes in Shanghainese food. We ordered a variety of dishes to share among friends, the food is very good and nicely presented. We had a private room on the second floor and from the internal balcony we could see the musician playing music. We enjoyed the food and... More

We ordered two 399 one person sets and it's very enough for three people. The crabs are a little bit small though I guess to because we ordered a set. But everything tastes so good so crabby.

Went for dinner hoping to have a great meal after seeing the reviews but ended very disappointed with the level of service provided. Have ordered the standard price set meal but was told by the staff that the hairy crab for this set was already sold out & will have to top up about Rmb $140 for a bigger size... More

The variety of crab dishes doesn't disappoint. Go for the set course meals if you aren't sure what to order and upsize the mitten crab. Definitely a gem!

Strongly advise you not to go there for the following reasons: 1. Food is mediocre but the price is disproportionately expensive. Almost $200 per a tiny crab, I'm sure you can get it somewhere else at a much lower price but with much better services and dining experience. 2. I was appalled that I had to share my table with...

I actually visited the same restaurant at Fen Yang Road. Very classic decoration, good ambience, and attentive services. Best of all, the Crab Meat Xiao Long Bao is excellent. Even my wife, who is ultra-selective, gave very appreciative nodding after the first bite. After having tried several restaurants all over the city, I mark this one as the top of... More

It's a bit difficult to review this as users of Trip Advisor won't necessarily be the most likely to eat at such an establishment. It's pretty good, and famous with locals. To make it easy for you to decide whther.to.come here or not, i'll just give you the basics: Pros: -Atmosphere and layout are quite nice, despite being a bit... More

I was told that the best hairy crab restaurant in Shanghai is Cheng Long Hang so my son and I went but without any reservation. We were ushered to two seats at a large table which was already occupied I believe by a few different groups of guests who did not know each other. As our purpose was just to... More

September is supposedly the season to get hairy crabs. However, we were one week too early. Our hotel booked Cheng Long in the Jin Mao building at Pudong. The original one is actually at the bund. The one at Pudong is newer and has a stage in the middle where they play traditional Chinese music. Their menu is extensive so... More

Staying in The Bund

Neighbourhood Profile
The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai International Settlement run by the British and Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has endured over time and is now found in the five-star hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
