buckwurst on CHI-Q on Oct 30th
Mrs. Buckwurst and I decided to treat ourselves last weekend, and as we'd never had "Korean-fusion" food before, but like both Korean & French food, we decided to give CHI-Q a try.... Atmosphere/Decor It looks great, lots of swanky wood and dark corners, but there's a fundamental problem. The tables are too wide. To talk with your guests you have to shout across the table to be heard. This is of course a problem for your own con.. ... [Read on]

Delicious burgers, good deals!

Really don't understand the critics on price.. Lunch set with cheeseburgers, fries and coke for 78RMB... Sounds pretty good deal to me! And brownie just awesome.. Cool joint. Coming back soon!

Excellent food vs. shitty service

Went there on a sunny Sunday for Brunch. One competitive advantage they have is their quiet terrace to enjoy the last sunny days before it gets too cold. 128RMB gets you one starter, one main + a free basket of mini pastries to share and unlimited coffee or tea, so speaking of money, it’s a pretty good deal. What happened to us is that service truly spoiled the food experience. There are like 2 waitresses for the whole terrace and they just can’t handle it when it gets busy. We waited for like 20 minutes to have drinks (note that coke had run out of bubbles)..

Great food, great service, small choice

I was curious to check this place out after reading a couple articles about it. I was not disappointed! The food is excellent and interesting (love the mix of quinoa, Chinese cabbage and spinach leaves). The service is great; everyone is always smiling and very nice, a waiter even offered to carry my tray, though sometimes a little too eager maybe, but I cannot fault that. What I am disappointed in, though, is the dish selection; it's not massive, which is not a problem, but it's not renewed and the third time I went, I would have liked to have had new choices. I say, ..

Good Restaurant

I like Sushi'O. There is a lot to like. They have pretty good sushi, of course. They have some very creative sushi rolls including things like sun dried tomatoes sushi. They also have lots of other fish and grilled dishes. Sushi'O's prices are not high, and their set lunches are an exceptional deal... I mean, what's not to like? So the service can be a bit slow, it's the same at many places in Shanghai. And the seats at the tables are not the most ergonomic. But overall the place is clean and comfortable. And, hey, you are getting very decent food for a reasonable amount of..

Wagas is Good!

I don't know why there is so much hate towards Wagas on Smart Shanghai. It doesn't make sense. I mean, what do you get at Wagas? You get good quality, good tasting food and consistency. Relatively quick and friendly service. And the prices are decent. What are the alternatives? Element Fresh? Element Fresh is reliable and has good quality. But it is more expensive. If you don't mind paying a bit more then Element Fresh is a decent alternative. What about Sproutworks, where food is cooked by ayis who know nothing? Sure, the prices are not high but the quality of the ingre..

Henkes

Henkes is Aussie chef Craig Willis's homage to the other side of his family; it's his mother's maiden name. By his own account, he's extracted the DNA of his first namesake restaurant Mr. Willis and expanded upon it with a trattoria/cafe/wine bar concept. Expect Willis's distinctive brand of Oz-Med flavors in sharable portions with a heavy Italian influence. The place also has a cafe that serves pastries, fresh-squeezed juices, and sandwiches.
