The best food this side of Shanghai
The Taste of Shanghai restaurant in the World Square Shopping Centre is so popular most days that there is usually a crowd of hungry shoppers waiting to be seated outside. They even have outdoor seats available for those who wait.

Transparency is a theme and you along with everyone else can watch the skilful chefs as they prepare food for the public. There is a sense of intrigue as well as confidence about doing this. Be well assured that the chefs know what they are doing as they calmly and with high standards of hygiene prepare the tasty fresh food.

Once you get a table, the wait staff are very polite and friendly. They will take your order with quickness and are happy to accommodate unusual requests – a friend has a peanut allergy, so we had to check a few items on the menu and the staff handled this with politeness and efficiency.

The restaurant was recently renovated and it shows; the décor is interesting and reminiscent of old Shanghai, with interesting pictures in frames and a lovely mock brick wall. The seating is comfy too.

Love the dumplings
Love the Dumplings

The best dumplings are the steamed vegetarian ones $8.80 for 8, although you really can't go past the perfectly cooked crispy melt in your mouth spring rolls for $7.80 for 4. The food is hearty and filling - it is perfect for sharing. I would recommend ordering a few dishes and sharing with your dining companions.The Tofu with preserved egg is a traditional favourite for $12.80. It is very filling. You must try the unique and tasty Shanghai turnip croissants you get 4 for $9.80. The egg pancake with deep fried dough stick is a tasty treat for $9.80 and you should try the grilled spring onion pancakes if you love your savoury pancakes - they are perfect.

So if you are in the mood for some wonderful and authentic Chinese dinner or lunch with friends or family then this is the place for you. Enjoy the best food this side of Shanghai.
