If you’re looking for authentic Shanghainese food in Hong Kong, this is the place to visit. There are 2 branches, one in North Point (Hong Kong Island) and the other in Tsim Sha Tsui (Kowloon). My folks think the TST branch serve better food, and since we’ve hardly ever been back to the other restaurant, I can’t tell you if my parents are right or not … they probably are.
As you can probably tell from the name, they’ve been around for a while. There are plenty of Shanghainese restaurant in town – another notable one is Ye Shanghai – but this one seems to have more variety and the decor and everything is less pretentious. I’m in it for the food ONLY.
If you ever feel like splurging a little, I would highly recommend their shark’s fin soup. At over HKD 2,000 per pot which serves about 10+, they don’t come cheap, but its well worth it.
