Desserts first - before main course. Ordered teapot of EarlGrey for two persons - were served with only one cup and waiter asked us to pay extra 20rmb for extra cup. So weird... we were so embarrassed, never seen such things even in Chinese restaurants....More

I love this restaurant and I am always coming back when visiting Shanghai. Great atmosphere and very nice setting. The food is always good and has a really mentionable wine list. Service is also very good.
