We had a fabulous dinner here and the staff could not have been more efficient or patient (one of our diners had particular dietary requirements). We appreciated the special seating we were given too to celebrate a special occassion.

Mongolian beef was very tender, can also recommend the dumplings. The sauce for the noodles and the chicken a bit too sweet for my taste. Overall excellent service, very nici food and affordable.

Lovely ambiance and fun vibe for a group setting. Drinks were the highlight and service was great. Very attentive staff. Food however was underwhelming for the value, dumplings at the start were very nice however mains lacked flavour and quality wasn’t up to everyone’s expectations.
Hi There, Thank you for your feedback and for taking the time out to write this review. We are so glad you had a pleasant experience at Madame Shanghai however we do apologise the food didn't meet your expectations. We hope you would still come back to dine with us again soon.

We usually love Madame Shanghai but on this occasion the dumplings were over cooked and very gluggy. The beef was good, though, and the wine too.

We are disappointed to hear that you did not enjoy the dumplings as usual and will be sure to pass along your comments to the team for review. We are very happy to see that you enjoyed the other aspects of your meal and that the service was enjoyable for you. We do hope to be able to welcome you back to Madame Shanghai another time in the near future.

I've been to dumpling bar at Walsh bay a number of times.
Both restaurants have similar menus, but the food here is nowhere near as good. Not even close to being worth the price.
Service was also very slow

Hi Elizabeth, Thank you for your great review of Madame Shanghai! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the kind of top quality service we pride ourselves on. Looking forward to your next visit!
The Food was great, atmosphere was great and the service once we were dining was second to none. Unfortunately when we first arrived we were left waiting at the check in counter for quite some time despite 2-3 staff seeing us. However once we were welcomed and shown our table. It was a great experience and we can not wait to come back.
Hi EssJay, Thank you for your lovely review and honest feedback. We are so pleased to hear that you had a great time with us, our apologise for the wait time in seating you at your table we will be sure to pass this along for future. We look forward to your next visit!
Good quality food, the shanghai noodles with prawns was bland but I enjoyed the rest of the dishes.
Their booking system really needs improvement: Made a dinner booking yet we got seated at an awkward half outdoor seating(that day was raining and pretty chilly). Asked the staff whether they can accommodate us for an indoor seating they responded it's a full house that evening and it has also been double booked so no. Also advised us we should make a note in our online reservation next time or call - how can one know to note down that request when they have never been to the venue?(there's also no such option to select indoor/outdoor seating??) I could never understand when a restaurant is not able to be flexible with the seating arrangement - unless they also think that half outdoor seating is lame otherwise why can't you seat whoever arrives first with a reservation at the seating they desires?🙄
The server of our table was also really intense, came over every 5 minutes to check on us and eagerly wanted to clear the plates(there was still food) when you just put your chopsticks down to have a chat. Not sure if that's just her or they were just trying to get us out asap since they were 'double booked'😑. Either way, wasn't too great of an experience.
What a great find in a good location in the city. A choice of seating areas with very different ambiance. We had the banquet which was delicious with a wonderful choice of dishes. All the staff were professional, friendly and accommodating with our requests. We will definitely be back.
Hi Lealea, Thank you for your lovely words and positive review of Madame Shanghai. It is great to hear that you enjoyed your dining experience so much and we are happy to see you will be returning to us again - hopefully very soon!

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to leave your lovely feedback of Madame Shanghai! We're glad your first experience was such a winner! We look forward to welcoming you back again for more great food and drinks hopefully very soon!
We have been frequent visitors to your restaurant. The food and service is always outstanding, however the last visit the main windows apparently had some damage and couldn't be opened as there was a mild wind. It was a hot day and to be honest it actually ruined the meal. Your wonderful staff moved as as soon as we had eaten, but I do find spending the amount of money at your restaurant that this is not acceptable at all.
I've also dined at the restaurant many times in the winter and overall I feel you really need to work on the internal temperature. It is not comfortable it is either too cold or too hot
Fabulous as always
Hi there, Thank you for the great review! We look forward to your next visit!
Extremely hot and no air conditioning it was 41 degrees c!
It was not possible to actually enjoy lunch and we felt sorry for the poor staff who were trying to work in these extreme conditions
What fine dining place has NO AIR CONDITIONING!
Not going back - over priced for the inhuman heat and discomfort !!!!
Had a blast with the drag bingo. Great food and wine.
Hi there, We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed our fabulous Blingo event at Madame Shanghai! We do hope you will join us again for more great food, wine and some fun entertainment!
