As you make your way up the driveway of Grand Shanghai, the trip back in time begins. Dark wood-polished floors, languidly turning celling fans, ornate lamps, lanterns and antiques greet you as you enter. A marbletop bar at one end serves up a selection of wines and Chinese rice wines.
Second time visiting the place. Was there for wedding dinner years ago but could not remember the taste of the food. Anyway, we were there for last minute Tim Sum lunch. When we arrived and just when i thought the restaurant was still closed, someone opened the door promptly. It seems that they were always ready and this really impressed me.
We were ushered promptly to our seats and were attended to for drinks immediately. As i read the menu, i noticed that Tim Sum was charged at per piece. I like about the thoughtfulness of the menu. It gives us the flexibility to decide how many of each type that we would like to order.
I was delighted that the food had came out piping hot. There were no delay in delivering the items to our table and we enjoyed the sweetness of the seafood at every bite. A server was assigned to our table and tea were filled rapidly without having to do it ourselves.
All in all, the dining experience was good.
I can't believed this s*** place actually gets a 3 star review. It was my mother's birthday celebration and i decided to bring her to have a enjoyable Chinese dinner. Ordered Fish Maw soup, ok not bad.
Ordered the Pekking Duck, the popiah skin was so thick that i can't taste the roasted duck skin.
The portion for the noodle we had for the duck mean to be cook with was just SAD.
Ordered the Birds' nest dessert for my mom and it was just plain water with birds nest. No Flavour ... HORRIBLE
and ya Probably the Xiao Long Bau was good but I tasted BETTER
A grand and nicely decorated Chinese restaurant.
Staff are attentive and experienced. They understand and respond well to instructions. Service is prompt.
Food however, disappointed. There is nothing to shout about about the food that was served up. Cooked to serve, but, the dishes we had were either too salty or too bland.
Possibly the only saving grace was the dessert of mango pomelo sago. Had the right sweetness and had a generous serving of pomelo and sago bits. Could do with a little more milk, though it was still good without.
Personally, doubt i'll be back or recommend anyone to the restaurant.

This place seeks to bring you back to old Shanghai- the chandeliers, the stage where the band performs, everything about it just feels like this is not a typical Chinese restaurant.
Other than the atmosphere, the dim sum was pretty average. The Siew Mai ($4.50) was my favourite of the lot with juicy fillings.
The Egg Tarts ($1 per piece) are a far cry from what any good egg tart should be like- the egg yolk didn't melt instantly and the crust did not have the aromatic buttery kick to it.
We ordered Steamed Crabmeat Dumplings ($8) but couldn't really taste the crabmeat.
The Braised Ee Fu Noodle with Crabmeat ($22) was moist and pretty good.
I wouldn't recommend getting the dim sum here because for the same price, you can get something better elsewhere. Service is nearly non-existent during weekend lunch hours.
The Crispy Pancake Stuffed with Red Bean Paste ($12) was average.
