The Food is German, for sure, and due to the many German visitors, the waiters can pronounce a few German words. But for me the food is just ok, nothing better. It is for the homesick Expats - And there are better German places in...More

The food is really like in Germany. Really tasty and the menue is really big! The waiter sometimes didn't understand what I wanted from her but she was really nice. The prices are ok. A little more that in Germany but not too expensive.

At Papa's Bierstube everything fits: Bavarian food, very tasty beer and a very, very nice atmosphere. Love the place. If you are German and you feel a little homesick, go there and enjoy a "German" evening.

Been here a number of times over the last year and is always a good place for beer and dinner. Unfortunately recently most if not all the service staff have changed. They are poor at best. Forgetting cutlery plates and just not very well trained....More

Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
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.
