    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.

    The decor is fun. The food is delicious. The wine a tad expensive. Dumplings yummy, fit in my tummy and the pork melts off my fork cos I can't use chopsticks any more..

    This restaurant is same group as Lotus. Whilst at a glance the menu looks the same but taste is different. Second visit but I am loving my first one much better.

    Second time coming here ... quality seems to drop ... Lotus usually has clean fresh taste of Chinese cuisine ...which was the case on our first visit but not this second visit. Menu similar to Lotus but different take of each menu or slightly different. Still worth a try and the atmosphere is nice.
