    • SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
      Green & Safe is a specialty grocer by the same folks who own Qimin, that organic hotpot restaurant on Shanxi Bei Lu. The retail side of the operation sells produce and meats grown and raised at the company's organic farm in nearby Kunshan as well as specialty items like imported tinned sardines, gourmet preserves, baked items and wines. The Xuhui location also has a deli counter and upstairs restaurant. Both serve dishes prepared with ingredients sourced from their farm.

      Green Kitchen, like its more casual cousin—Green & Safe, the often-packed café and salad bar just downstairs—sources most of its ingredients from its own organic farm. This restaurant version tends to have heartier mains, and on...

    Don't get me wrong, I love Green and Safe like a fat man loves doughnuts. Great concept, good quality food, great interior design, always busy with a good atmosphere and consistently good food. So why is it like the DMV you ask?

    The service. The service is like queueing at the DMV on a rainy day in a small town in southwestern Montana. I've been twice recently after the refurbishment and found shocking service both times.

    First time - we ordered a couple of dishes, late on a Tuesday evening. Should be relatively quick - a simple pie and a pasta. Pasta comes out quickly, within 10 minutes. Pie takes over 40 minutes more...waiter didn't seem to realise.

    Second time - had to sit upstairs as it was busy - no worries, we took a table just vacated. The fuwu came over and honestly, it was like seeing the sloths in Zootopia at the DMV cleaning a table. I have a lot of patience, but seriously, this guy was taking his sweet time to clear the table - like honestly - why are you working in slow-motion!? Waiters were a bit indifferent to everything.

    Also, I need to have a gripe about their stupid ordering system if you order a beer. You go to checkout, & order a beer. They give you a slip of paper. You go upstairs to queue again at the bar to hand your ticket to the fuwu. She casually saunters over to pour your beer. I then have to walk back downstairs. Seriously, I could have walked to Yongkang and brewed my own beer in the time it takes to start slurping a cold one at Green and Safe.

    Stick with a smoothie and a salad!
    Groceries and salad are a-ok

    I get a few groceries items there regularly. They have consistently good prices on frozen organic vegetables and some other frozen items.

    The lunch salads are also pretty good and for RMB 88 you get massive portions of 3 salads. It's very generous. But other reviewers do have a point about the waiting time, even for things like salad. It just always takes a while, much longer than you would expect when everything is just waiting to be plated.

    We had a heinous brunch...and would absolutely never return for that one.

    Also, FYI, if you want organic vegetables from OUTSIDE you will have to go back inside to pay. So...that's annoying.

    The manager there is really nice and absolutely will step in and make it happen when things go wrong, but it seems like he's needed constantly. I'm not sure what it would take to upgrade the service here. Real training, or maybe needs a restaurant manager as well as a store manager?

    after the first time been there, my boyfriend and i thought this restaurant will not make any business because it was so expensive and with very little food on your dishes.
    Luckily, over few months later they changed a bit the price and you get what you pay for, now they have really good business.
    lots of salad to choose, fresh baked bread and cakes, frozen food, fresh vagies, it's a half supermarket+restaurant.
    lovely for lunch, afternoon tea, simply dinner.
    tips: everyday after 7, veggies and bread has 30% off
