    The food was excellent, unfortunately they weren’t able to honour our booking of the $55 set menu per The Fork booking. We did however settle for the $69 menu, which was excellent. Going forward, perhaps further clarification of what menu will be honoured by the restaurant is required as according to them that particular Fork special had ended, however according to your site it was still valid.

    Dumplings and duck pancakes were the highlight. Shame they didn't have the Chinese new year package for 2 people but nevertheless it was an enjoyable evening.

    The food was really nice, we enjoyed the Chinese New Year banquet. The service was extremely slow and patchy, as we had to remind them multiple times of things we had ordered.

    Good presentations, portions are on the smaller side, and a little bit lesser options than what we expected but it had nice ambiance :) will definitely keen to give it another try

    Service is excellent. Dishes can be too small portion for the price they charge. Needs to be more generous. Wine was very nice and matching the food served. Service prompt , prefessional and welcoming.

    This is the second time I have been to this restaurant and absolutely love it. We shared the Bottomless Rose brunch and all the food was fresh, delicious and full of flavour. The Rose was cold and crisp and they were certainly generous with their pouring. Will definately will return and would highly recommend.

    I have been a guest at MS a number of times and have always enjoyed the innovative but high-quality creations and delicious dishes. Service is exemplary and my guests and I have always been made very welcome and looked after very well by the staff. The wine list is also sufficiently broad with very good choice selections from all parts of the world. I just wish that the squid-ink dumplings were a permanent item on the menu. Kim Idris

    lotus group have gone from strength to strength with their all round offering. Madame Shanghai showcases some of the best Chinese fusion food in Sydney. the wine list needs expanding though.

About the restaurant

Madame Shanghai is a Darlinghurst eatery and bar serving Shanghai street food and yum cha.

Inside, old-school elegance and Chinoiserie décor combine with a playful colour palette of malachite, blues and pinks emulating 1930’s Shanghai. The cocktail area overlooking Hyde Park is reminiscent of a Shanghai garden with lush greenery. The 90 seater is open six days for both dinner and a bar menu as well as yum cha lunch and dinner, Thursday to Sunday.
