We had a fast but very good quality meal one of these days.

Service is fast and friendly, the skin of the crispy duck second to none.

Vegetables, nuts perfect.

Fair prices, good international wine list

This was my 2nd visit to this restaurant nestled and hidden from the main road. The food was lovely especially the spicy Beef with bread. The service was great with lovely ambience.

I was in Shanghai on business and my colleagues took me to this restaurant, with which they were very familiar. They did the ordering, and we had several dishes to share, from vegetables to fish to pot stickers. Everything was delicious. The wait staff was very attentive.

I have been several times within the last 3 years to this restaurant. A lot of airline crews go there for dinner. The chinese food is great and you will enjoy it if you are eg from Europe. The staff is very friendly and the prices are ok.

We've been going to 1221 ever since our first week in Shanghai 9 years ago. The food is ridiculously good and made fresh without MSG. While a bit more pricey than other local food, it is still significantly cheaper than other restaurants of this calibre. Great food, great value, great service. When we have visitors to Shanghai, this is always on our list of restaurants.
