    • Editor's Description
      Yet another project from the prolific Mr. Craig Willis, BANG is kind of a hybrid concept. Like his other concept Henkes, it incorporates a small cafe setting next to a larger bistro concept, but the decor isn't quite as polished. The menu is closer to what you'd find at his namesake restaurant Mr. Willis. Think rustic Mediterranean cuisine like his signature roast chicken; handmade pastas with sauces like chicken liver ragout; and simple antipasti like marinated raw seafood with olive oil and dill. Willis's pizzas are also a main feature of the menu.

    • Bang is the iapm mall iteration of the Mr. Willis restaurant empire and it does not disappoint.

      The roast chicken is still the best in Shanghai. It is the exact same as the dish at Mr. Willis and every bite was juicy and flavorful. The roasted pumpkin that comes with it is also awesome. It’s roasted to a really nice crisp on the outside with a soft and sweet inside.

      The pizza on a sourdough crust would also give any place in Shanghai a run for its money. The crust is just the right balance of chewy and crispy. The patio has a nice view over Xiangyang park, and was packed when we went on a recent weekend. The service is good and the place is very family friendly.

      You get the feeling that they’ve found a good formula and are sticking with it. It’s the kind of place where you know exactly what you are going to get, and every time it’s still a little better than it needs to be. I can imagine one day you might find one of these in every mall in China. They have found a good lane and are sticking with it.

      The damage was about 150 RMB per person.
