    • Editor's Description
      Described as an 'American Cafe', Malone's is home to the most extensive burger menu in the city. Smack in the middle of Tongren Lu just around the corner from the Shanghai Center, Malone's is usually packed with expats and the out of town business crowd. Upstairs plays host to a Filipino cover band most nights, an extensive bar can satisfy any thirst, and the outdoor seating is quite appreciated during the warmer months.

    My wife and me went to Malone's last night. First thing we noticed was, the place was completely empty - and unfortunately we were about to find out why.

    Waitress came and handed us the drinks and food menus waiting next to our table to take the orders. Chose our beers and the girl immediately asked what food we wanted. Come on... give us a minute here. Finally decided on some starters, pork ribs and one of their highly recommended burgers.

    Food was served about 15 minutes later. Shared half of the ribs with my wife who immediately noticed "Hey, that's beef and not pork". So we waved over the waitress who looked at it and just kept saying "I ordered pork in kitchen!" not willing to return the plate. Then her colleague came over and told us right away "Sir, I'm sure this is pork". Are you kidding me? Finally a third waitress came over and said "Yes that's beef" and returned the plate to kitchen.

    Another 15 minutes later the new plate arrived... but this time just a half portion of pork ribs. When I complained the waitress said "Sir, you already ate half of the beef ribs". Again... are you kidding me? I showed her that the other half of the ribs was still sitting on my wife's plate since I had cut them in half. At this point I was actually ready to leave. However the waitress (with a very reluctant look on her face) agreed to bring another portion of ribs.

    No further incidents then until we received the check and were billed for BEEF ribs. I didn't want to haggle about the additional 10 RMB, so we just dropped the money on the table and left.

    Seriously, this isn't the Malone's we've been visiting for 10+ years now. In their defense, the burger is still decent however the overall experience was very disappointing. Time for a change in management.

    Maaaaalooooneeeee's.....(echoing throughout tongren lu)
    What has happened to Malone's? Seriously???? 10 years ago(for those of you who have been in Shanghai for a very long time..and I've been here longer than 10...)you could walk into Malone's and battle to find a place to sit. Voted best burger?? Doesn't seem to happen there flow of soft drinks and ice tea??no ways!! Doesn't happen anymore.

    Walked into Malone's yesterday with my gf and we came for lunch. The place was empty.
    I was the only foreigner there. (The chef even walked out the kitchen stating to the staff that it was busier than the day before.) Can't see it open for much longer...even though this year is their 20th anniversary.

    Quality of food-I remember going there and my mouth would still salivate after leaving and just wanted more but couldn't as I was too full.

    Value-Unless I eat a hell of a lot more than I used to, which I don't. They had American portions 10 years its something a kid could probably handle.
    Drinks are overpriced too.

    Service-Barely any. The Barman and Bar manager were sitting on the customers side of the bar and having a nice chat, swearing and talking rudely to each other thinking I wouldn't understand. The waitress who was there seemed bored too as she kept staring at our table.

    Not sure what has happened but I felt like I had walked into a haunted house looking for a revamp and change of atmosphere.
