    Had to write a review to combat all these negative one star reviews. This place has an amazing relaxed vibe, great food (highly recommend the teriyaki pork rice), 25rmb draft asahi happy hour and on top of that the music is perfect. If you enjoy a relaxed vibe and good food come here

    I wanted to do a classic "eggs and stuff" brunch to enjoy the short week-end we had. The Grumpy Pig sounded to be a good bet in my neighborhood. Decided to tell my girlfriend, aka the best brunch partner in the world, and we were ready to ride on her shiny scooter.

    First impression was very good. This is a nice cozy place with a patio where I could easily chill the whole day. The brunch menu is simple but efficient, with not so many dishes which is generally a sign of fresh food. Let's order the breakfast burger and a scrambled eggs platter. As usual, I always order a Bloody Mary to cure my hangover, so I went for this one too.

    After at least 15 minutes waiting, my drink came in a beer taster glass with ugly printing on it. The cocktail was neither generous nor tasty. And there was not this spicy touch that you need in a Bloody Mary. I wasn't expecting a wild one with the shrimp on the top, but for 60 rmb, it has to be at least strong.

    Thirty minutes later, the burger came almost upside down. When we ordered it, the waitress asked how we wanted it to be cooked, which is not so common in Shanghai. I asked for a reasonable medium rare (everything over medium rare is overcooked for me). Finally I ended up with an almost burned patty. I don't even know why she asked "the cuisson" if they can't cook a proper steak...

    Thirty minutes after we finished our dried meat, we were wondering if they forgot our second dish so we decided to cancel it. But it came anyway and... I remember this... Unpleasant.. Smell. I didn't even tried the dish, which never happened to me before.

    I remember the waitress throwing us the bill in the middle of our meal. I'm OK to pay before eating, it is sometimes even more convenient. But as soon as I start, the waiter should at least wait coffee time (and wait for us to ask). Furthermore, with a 300 rmb bill for 2 dishes and a drink, by all means it wasn't a cheap brunch.

    So yeah, very bad experience. I came happy and left grumpy. I might come back to try one or two of their Kin bar cocktails though, they sounded very nice.

    Ive been coming to the Grumpy Pig for awhile now (couple years) and can honestly say that I've never left Grumpy....well....grumpy. Sweet tunes, mellow vibes & good food. I was there last week with some mates, and once again, everything was excellent. Waiters were kind and were always around if I needed something. I generally go for the tonkatsu, which is always cooked as if it came straight from a kitchen in Japan. Tender, good piece of fat to meat ratio, and the crumby goodness on the outside. I also recently had the steak rice bowl which is a pretty cool addition. Generally steak to me is a no no in Shanghai, but this was a good quality piece of steak. I thought it might be a touch weird with rice and egg (which by the way is meant to be runny), but Id totally suggest giving that a try. U'd be surprised. Cocktails can be a bit stiff though....but really.... who complains about a heavy hand anyway, honestly.

    I remember when this place first opened a few years ago and I thought to myself, "this could actually be pretty neat. A cafe stroke tiny restaurant attached to the back of a streetwear shop. Good job Shanghai". At that moment I couldn't have been more wrong.

    The first time I visited The Grumpy Pig was just after it opened. We were a large group (about 12 people) and after an hour of waiting none of us had food and half of us had drinks. "That's ok" I thought to myself. This place is new, I'll give them a break. After waiting another hour, they actually forgot what each of us ordered so the majority left hungry. Bad experience, I told myself I'd never go back.

    Recently I had a friend organize a breakfast Birthday celebration so tagged along to try The Grumpy Pig for the second time. HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THE SERVICE HAS BECOME EVEN WORSE!?!? Ordering at the Grumpy Pig is like calling Sherpas during a thunderstorm - your food arrives 2 hours later and it looks like the delivery guy took a bad spill because your food is so f*cked up. Everyone ordered eggs, arguably one of the easiest things to prepare in the world. Low and behold, they messed up dishes and forgot orders, this time for a group of only 7.

    After complaining to the manager about the food and the service they gifted me a coffee. A nice gesture, but far too late in the game.

    Will not go back! Again.

    Wow! Went there last Friday evening and it totally ruined the evening. The only thing Grumpy is your mood when you leave this place. We were 3 people ordered 6 dishes to share, some drinks too. We were the ONLY table at the restaurant when we arrived and the dishes came out one at the time (were actually cooked this way) which is awful. This is not sharing.... it is eating one dish with 3 forks, being super hungry. The food was absolutely mediocre and it felt like a non-professional come cook prepared them. About the dishes: Liver was chevy and undercooked. Fries were tiny, soggy and cheapishly covered in seaweed. Japanese Meatballs were just bland and boring. BUT here comes the worst thing: After we got the Papaya Salad (which was a disgrace and served as last(!) dish), we asked the waiter about the main dish (Pork Rillette) we ordered and he replied that they RAN OUT OF IT and didn't bother to tell us before... Absolutely ridiculous was that every single dish brought to us was announced, like we don't know what we ordered, and waiters pretended it was a high-class cuisine. Maybe it was good at some point, but now it is just over-prices sadness with 70RMB for a tiny bottle of beer. Do not ever go there... especially if you like pork!

    The place looks really neat, a good mix of interior and partially exterior spaces. We went there for lunch and delighted with very comfortable decor we somehow grew expectations for food. Unfortunately this is what a lot of businesses thrive on in Shanghai.
    I had go to give it to the guys, the coffee was decent. I saw the guys mixing coctails at the bar, it could be good for drinks.

    Food was terrible.

    I got pork ribs, that came somewhat dry and indecently unpleasant. "Ribs" to me means: meat around the rib bone, not the bone itself, roasted, served to the customer to suck on. The price was fairly standard for a quick lunch in Jingan, still I'd rather go safe with Wagas, than sorry with Grumpy.
    Thanks for warning, we'll definitely stay away.

    The previous reviews were mostly written in 2012. I was really looking forward to it but a lot seems to have changed.

    I ordered the pork neck steak - pure fat and oddly bitter. I left it uneaten. Not surprised that the portion was small since it evidently ends up in the bin anyway..
    so
    I ordered the pork rice bowl. An uncooked egg oozed through the rice like runny snot. The pork had been marinated and left out so long it had gone hard. It also went uneaten.

    I've got a gut wrenching hole in my stomach and need to brush my teeth.

    Yuk

    A big disappointment. We ordered food through Sherpa, so can't rate the restaurant decor, service or if it's suitable for a date. But for sure it's not a good delivery deal. We ordered Dishes where OK, but nothing extraordinary. But for this price they were extremely small. Green papaya salad 28 RMB was dry and without any dressing, also was more like a small side-dish, typically is given for free in other places. Pork neck steak was the best of them all, juicy and tasty, but again rather of unimpressive size. Mushroom medley rice bowl for 55 RMB was plain and too small as well. The worst was the crack pie for 40 RMB, which was just a tiny 2 cm x 2 cm square. It's maybe not a bad place, but definitely food is a little overpriced - it's nothing special and portions are really small. Definitely not going to order again.
