    • SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
      The Blue Frog pub/restaurant chain has been around in Shanghai for over ten years. The menu is basically unfussy American-style food -- burgers, pastas, salads, sandwiches. To drink is a reasonable selection of beers (both bottled and tap). Its daily four-hour happy hour and it's two-for-one burger Mondays have made it a popular haunt among expats.

    • Generally, the only time you can get me to venture to the Dark Side is to take a flight out of PVG, or when I attend the annual Decanter wine event, which is worthwhile otherwise not. Chance would have it,  that I was invited to a rather interesting display of Goldfish currently on at the Shanghai World Financial Centre, which makes one rather hungry.

      Feeling peckish, decided to try out Blue Frog in the basement, as there was not much else to offer in bowels of the World Financial Centre building, for a Friday evening not much in the way of clientele in any of the venues I might add.

      I was with my regular dining partner, ordered a glass of South African sparkling, and Stella, proceed to order the food, when blow me over the waitress knocked the South African sparkling over me, full of apologies and handfuls of cocktail napkins later I was mopped up, and moved to another table, with another glass of sparkling in hand, not the end of the world, it might be Friday, but to sit in the wet patch is not much fun.

      Ordered the Mix Grill platter, with a side of Fries, the order came quickly, rather dubious when grilled items arrive so quickly, “Almost here’s one I did earlier”, the sausages on the platter were not cooked, in fact raw, so had to send back via a gruff cook.

      The waitstaff were friendly enough, was offered a complimentary dessert for our troubles, but overall, I would say don’t bother dining at this venue.

      I have lived in Shanghai since 2005, and had the odd meal at a number of Blue Fog establishments, from the earlier days on Tong Ren Lu to Maoming Lu, and Hong Mei Lu, and have to confess they have declined in the quality and standard of food offered, the service has always been hit and miss, would not recommend any I am afraid.
