    • Editor's Description
      This is the second place for the friendly neighborhood pub The Shed. It's Aussie owned and specialises in keeping drink prices low all day, every day. Good place for cheap beer and sports, and they have a nice menu of pub grub, too. Friendly staff and a welcoming vibe.

    • Atmosphere: Spacious.  Wooden, sometimes wobbly tables.  TVs showing Aussie sports. This is an expat institution, where single diners can enjoy as much as a big group.  Wanna drown your sorrows with some shots?  Saddle up to the bar.  Play some darts or pool?  They got a few tables.  Eat a decent steak at a decent price? Come on by on Monday nights! The Shed is one of those places that when you enter, you know you’ll be in good hands.  

      Food: It's not going to win any awards for the steak.   You wanted medium rare, but the steak arrives medium.  They might give you the wrong side of sauce.   Does any of that matter at The Shed?  It’s not a place to complain.  It’s a place to have good food without any fuss.  Easy on the wallet.  Tasty, daily specials.  I make many return visits on Monday nights for their half-off steak specials.  Two steaks, with that perfect char taste, choice of two sides, a side of sauce, and a glass of wine each for no more than 250 RMB.  New York Strip, Ribeye, to a more expensive Rump - it’s all delicious. 

      The sides are hit and miss, but I highly recommend the side of Mexican rice.  I don’t know what they do to it, but it has a certain chew to it that makes me happy. The sauteed mushrooms are spot on.  They added what seems to be a new side item: baked cauliflower with cheese.  The cauliflower was barely baked and the cheese lacked the cheesiness that's often missing in Shanghai's Western bars.  

      With the side sauce options, the bbq is servicable, but the onion gravy is like eating Thanksgiving gravy.  Considering I missed Thanksgiving this year, it's a welcome addition to the steak.   

      Service: Completely acceptable.  The staff speaks English quite well.  Maybe a few minor mistakes when taking the order, but this is not a place for any gripes.
