"All of us came away full and happy. Would definitely recommend to a friend. " -- julietd on Lotus Eatery (Dingxi Lu)

"The place recalls very much Nest. Where Nest is the cool brother and Cannery the ugly one." -- costanzadl on The Cannery

"Nice staff, fast wifi, beers costed at the usual 45 - 75 RMB. Also, normal customers too, always a bonus, nice mix of locals and a nice absence of young men in scarves and not an overweight engineer from a Mexican themed compound in deepest darkest Pudong in sight." -- AlexJ1969 on Kaiba Tap House

"Good vibes too -- lively but relaxed. Lots of expats, even on a Monday evening." -- julietd on Shanghai Brewery (Hengshan Lu)

"Killer sandwiches. Ice coffee game also very strong." -- Heatwolves on Saigon Mama

"I've been there on monday with the "get fat an drunk", hamburger fries and drink 88rmb. Quite good. Now the location is ok, but inside is dark with a kind of disco music i really don't like and is noisy. I took a maragrita, i don't like cocktelis too much and after this one i think i understand why.. simply i didn't enjoy it, but that's just me that have a bad relation with cockteils." -- enteromorfa on CU2

"How many chances there are that an italian restaurant can make a pasta worse than the one you do at home? in italy none, but in shanghai, even in a famous one, is something you should always consider." -- enteromorfa on Da Marco

"Have just been the unfortunate recipient of the worst pub beef pie and mash I have ever been served outside of a train station or football ground. …Readers: do bear in mind that this is a great robust sports bar, huge screens, free pool, lively atmosphere. I just want that damn pie fixed." -- ell_iott on The Camel (Yueyang Lu)

"If you want a beer, best place in the city." -- freundjosh on The Beer Lady

"Food and coffee is very good, especially their breakfast sets (coffee, sandwich and salad. The only downfall is the size of the place. If you can't find a seat take it to go and sit in a nearby park. Well worth what you get an a good portion size for a bagel sandwich." -- freundjosh on Lanna Coffee
