It seemed to be a locals spot and the restroom supported that theory. I took it as a good sign that there were no western toilets. We were happy that Maredsous beer was on the menu, our new favorite. We like spicy food and enjoyed everything we ordered. We had both the spare ribs and a heart shaped dish described as ribs in ketchup sauce. We took the risk and ordered it. It payed off, the ribs and sauce were delicious, no ketchup. I was an immediate fan of the roasted cumin seeds on the spare ribs. We had two types of shrimp dishes, one covered in chili peppers and the hot and sour shrimp. Both were excellent. We had a broccoli dish and snow peas with bacon, both so good. The snow peas were infused with the bacon flavor. We had soup, dumplings and fried bananas for dessert. The bananas were fantastic and it was fun to watch the server pull them apart with chopsticks. We would eat here frequently if we lived in Shanghai and were very grateful to trip advisor for the tip!

I love spicy food and the choices were plentiful. My Chinese distributor ordered the fish head with two different sauces, and it was tasty! They have several different beers on tap including Tiger, which is one of my favorite Asian beers.

After dinner in the small side room (four tables) we met another friend for a few more beers out in the main dining room as there were few empty tables. I will return again!

Great food, easy drinking beer and super fast service in a restaurant with good ambience. Recommend the pork ribs. You do need to reserve a table in advance especially on weekends.

Was recommended here when staying at the 4 seasons. If feels "off the beaten track" and very "local" but once you're in there the food is great and spicy without being overbearing.

Enjoy!
