Hongsberg on Nova on Dec 11th
Having visited this place several times for their lunch and Wednesday dinner offers, with impeccable experience, I thought I went for the a la carte menu, since they apparently do not have the Wednesday offer anymore (or did the waitress forget to tell me..?). I ordered Choucroute with sausages, pork and potatoes. A suitable dish for a rainy, windy evening in Shanghai. Food came in a deep plate, typically French. Big plates, small portions. Quite.. ...

bhado on Greek Taverna

That's a joke! Never again!

Actual, the Greek Traverna was one of my favorites for some time. But since about half year or so I noticed, it's becoming worse: The portion becomes smaller, the staff is less trained. The worst happened today: I ordered an extra portion of Tzatziki. The waitress seriously ask me: "Tzatziki? Is this a sort of drink?". A Greek Restaurant, where the staff doesn't know what is Tzatziki? After this experience, the Restaurant is on my black list. How disappointing

worthwhile steaks

Just came over from Sydney and already we were craving a good slab of meat! However we didnt want to empty our pockets at the same time. Found The Cut online, and decided to give it a try. What can i say? Good service, nice ambience, and best of all...steak. Steaks come at four different cuts with four different price levels - we chose the middle two and were not disappointed. You'd be surprised at how many restaurants can get "medium rare" wrong - not this one. Medium rare was medium rare - pink in the middle, nice and juicy! Not to mention bottomless french frie..

Spiked shakes!

Burgers are okay, but the real star here are those off-the-hook spiked shakes. Ridiculously good. Same sort of thing made popular at the Roosevelt Hotel in LA. Ive had the Grandmas and one other one, forget which. They are like 50-55RMB. They come in a glass, but you also get the "extra" part of it in the steel shaker on the side, so it;s like one and a half shakes. None better in the city.

Worst Buffet Experience - will not go back ever

Overall food is decent, love the fresh made pizza and the grill station. Ice cream is way too soft, my ice cream melted before I got back to my table. Service is the worst, we set right in front of the water station and had asked the staff 5 times to refill our tea, the staff acknowledged but never refill our tea. Throughout our entire dinner, the staff only came a few times to clean up our plates, we had to stack up the dirty plates and put them aside in order to make room for our next round. From where I was sitting, I saw a staff took out some child's plates/bowls fr..

Underrated Gem

I'm not sure I'd go out of my way for this one, but it's in my office neighborhood and I popped in a couple days ago. It's good! It's decent value! I like! My staples are the tuna avocado roll (RMB52) and the garden salad (RMB20). The salad is piled pretty high and has that particular Japanese dressing, you know what I'm talking about. The roll--not as good as Haiku--just at about half the price it's quite filling and tasty. Plus they show anime cartoons on the TV. Moreover--there's almost always counter seating. Only drawback is that the food prep is a bit slow, but I gues..

This place is definitely growing on me

I've been going there pretty regularly for the last few weeks. For one reason it's near where I work...and the beer of course. The Smashed Pumpkin ale was awesome. That's off the menu now, but there's another one that's similar, just forget what it's called Gourd something. So when I say 4-stars for food I really mean the beer. Most beers are RMB40 which is just about right. The food food however is 3 stars. A bit too fancy somehow, not quite value for money. I've tried a bunch of things there and everything just sorted falls a bit short. It's all "good", but just..

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.
