The TOS menu comes as in glossy attractive looking magazine that you flip through to visually see what you want to eat. The menu combos attractive visuals and an easy to use numbering ordering system which is probably the best way forward with a menu of over 100 items in here.

Bevvies: Tsingdao beers and their delicious mango blended ice drink which was rather quite good.

Eats at Taste of Shanghai.

Getting into their food menu, one of the things we’ll note off the bat is that the service is fast and friendly and the food does comes out of the kitchen at quite a hurried pace; in no time our table was overwhelmed with our somewhat large order. Across the board, the food is tasty and delicious. Their dumplings and traditional chinese yum cha fare (the spring rolls) were pretty great and real crowd pleasers – large platters of steaming hot morsels of pork dumplings in all iterations were great – from the XLB to the steam dumplings, they delivered.

Braised Pork Belly with Quail eggs was also a standout dish. Largish in serve and very flavoursome with the nuggets of quail eggs bursting with flavour. What was also a big serve was the alarmingly large fish poached in chilli oil dish that took up major table real estate – a dish that’s large enough and probably actually enough for 2 with rice. Glistening chunks of fish in a not overtly spicy chilli oil soup (the ladle is slotted to drain the oil). Lovers of spice will lap this one up but for the uninitiated, the sight of this much oil is a tad confronting. Steamed baos came with a bowl of glistening pork belly in a bit of a “make your own” .

Taste of Shanghai is pretty terrific; great value and depending on how much you order, the spend will sit between $20-30 per head and you’ll be well satiated. Good eats in a nicely fitted out restaurant. It should be noted that you can sign up for a membership that lowers the pricing on orders by about 10% per item (Find out about that here)

    Just looking at that oil and chilli is making my tongue tingle. Love the look of that fried rice though and the plate of green is definitely one of my favourite vegetable dishes.
