I had bought a Groupon Voucher for New Shanghai a few months ago. I wanted to take my family members there, so I spent RM 192 (for 6 pax) there, using the Groupon.

The first problem came when I wanted to make a booking. I called and called and called AND CALLED but nobody answered (I had to call to make a reservation)

I then found their Facebook page, and tried to make a comment there too. I noticed a lot of other people had commented on the same issue (phone not being answered).

A little while after posting MY comment, all the other negative comments (about the phone not being answered) were deleted. Great.

A few days later I decided to drop by at the restaurant PERSONALLY to make a reservation (because my parents were coming from Sabah!)

When I got there, the owner was yelling at his staff and making them cry.

Fast forward 3 weeks to yesterday, and we finally arrived (on a Tuesday night, mind you) to our reservation. The place was quite empty, with only 3 other tables occupied.

We waited more than 5 minutes for someone to ask us if we'd like tea, and to give us the menu for ordering. The other table was attended to first, and I had to ask them to serve us.

Our reservation was for 7.30pm. They had told us "Last call is at 8.30pm".

We placed our order (for dim sum buffet) at 7.40 pm (after they finally served us)

By 8.05pm, no food had arrived, except for 2 small pieces of deep fried spring rolls.

We were worried, because what if we miss the last call and cannot order more food?

Finally at 8.10pm, the food arrived. My mother grumbled to the staff that the service was exceptionally slow (Ah yes, only 2 outside staff. The same 2 staff manned the cashier, served food, cleaned up the dishes, refilled your tea).

The girl (a young chinese girl) had the audacity to reply "This is actually considered very fast. Usually it is much longer". The way she said it, it seemed like we were supposed to be GRATEFUL for the slow service. Not a good response from staff. *Note, my mother was not shouting or screaming. She just said it to the staff, in a slightly annoyed voice*

I am guessing some of the staff have quit from last time. Either bad management, or bad service staff. Either way, we waited too long for our food.

The food that arrived, was not spectacular at all. For almost RM 200, I feel like we could have done a lot better elsewhere. Some of the food tasted a little sour, like it had been kept too long. Some of the food was tasteless. Not much tasted fresh.

According to their Facebook, they won some 'awards' but I think it's not deserving at all.

Ming Room, Grand Imperial, they all win over this chain of restaurants.

Sorry but this will be the first and last time I patronise you.
Other Info. : No special feelings. It was terribly hot there, like the air-con didn't work. The food court in Publika was a lot cooler than this sad restaurant.

可以看得出这条鱼真的很肥美。因为端上来的时候这条鱼可以分出那么多块鱼肉出来。鱼肉每一块都很鲜美,吃起来还很嫩滑。外皮炸到很酥脆,所以吃起来外酥内软,口感非常的棒。

发现这里的糕点都很不错。个人特别喜欢当中的桂花糕。但是我却不喜欢桂花糕里面的己子。桂花糕有着很香的味道,吃起来并不会很甜,旁边的糕点吃起来好像棉花一样绵密,很好吃。

虽然这里的烤鸡外皮并没有那种想象中的酥脆感觉。但是味道吃起来很鲜美。鸡肉只是经过简单调味的关系所以更能吃出鸡肉的鲜美。肉质很滑嫩,吃起来烤的功力不错,就连鸡胸也是滑滑的。

这里的南瓜羹很好喝。很喜欢那种浓稠带有一点稀释的羹。味道喝起来的时候都会很浓郁的南瓜味道,质感很幼滑顺口。里面还有很多的蟹肉。所以品尝到南瓜香的同时还能喝到一种鲜甜的味道。

新上海小笼包,味道不错,包皮很薄,我喜欢里面的灌汤汁。但是当我吃的时候,包德皮有些凉了,我觉得小笼包记得要趁热吃,才可以吃出他的鲜味。蒜香炒饭,味道一般,但是我个人喜欢铺在上面的炒东菇,有些长豆粒,配饭一起吃还是挺开胃的。

来到新上海这里点了一盘麻辣肉丝捞拉面,天啊现在的面条还真的很贵啊。我觉得味道非常的一般。还好他们的酱汁是密制,配上幼面还不错吃。这一盘上海饺子皇,整体还是蛮不错的。皮薄馅美,鲜虾新鲜,馅料还蛮多的,饺子的酱汁也没有很咸。

金碧流沙包,光听名字就令人垂涎三尺。马上点了一份来试试,第一口我觉得整个包的败北就是他们的外皮,有些硬。因为我对他们的期待还是挺高的。不过里面的流沙馅料很味道,本人很喜欢。每个包要3.80马币一个,价钱偏高,加上不是很满意。

这个蜜汁叉烧包相比之下我觉得味道普通。也不是说不好啦,只是没有惊喜的感觉,味道还是不错的。外皮很松软,要下去里面很多汁。我觉得有点太咸了。里面的肉质也还好。不软不硬。

这个桂花糕外形看起来很漂亮,金银剔透的。里面有很多枸杞子。吃起来清清凉凉很舒服感觉也很润喉。哈哈心理作用,因为是药材的关系。不过对我来说味道有点太甜了。不过很香。

每次经过这里都会觉得这里很特别。有时看到人家好像食堂里点餐一样排队。有时候却看到人家用HIGH TEA形势吃点心。很有趣。这个荷叶糯米饭看起来很小一个。但是里面很有内容的。鸡肉块,咸蛋,冬菇。糯米里面都有很浓郁的荷叶香。吃起来味道很好。

Our favorite: the Shanghai Dandan noodles. Might not look remarkable but tastes terrific, thanks to a nuttiness that nicely complements its spiciness.

New Shanghai Legend serves wine, but only by the bottle. Reasonable prices though.

The original New Shanghai in Pavilion serves Pork Free Dim Sum all day, and the one in Publika does the same with more. They also serve a variety of main courses. There were Prawn/Chicken dumplings with ‘special sauce’ (right at the front), Prawn and Vegetables dumpling top with ‘caviar’ (middle), Prawn and Pumpkin dumplings (the triangular looking ones), and Chicken BBQ Puffs (all the way in the back). All contain very generous amount of fillings. Although I’ve prefer the skins to be more delic

All contain very generous amount of fillings. Although I’ve prefer the skins to be more delicate and thinner. I didn’t like the Chicken BBQ Puffs though, the pastry was a little bland and the filling lacks flavour.

Coincidentally, I cooked Watercress soup the day before this review. This version is so much more decadent with the addition of Salted and Century Eggs, infusing the soup with their own unique flavours. I love how the Watercress is still bright green. Crunch seems to be the theme of the night. Not that I’m complaining.

Kampong chicken is used for this dish, so you would expect firmer and leaner meat. The sauce is thick with a distinctive pungent aroma of ginger, but also slightly sweet. This would be quite lovely with rice.

Simply fried with dark soy sauce with some eggs and vegetables, I would happily chow down a large portion of this without all the other fancy dishes. Good amount of “wok hei”, springy noodles. Perfect.

It’s hard to pick a favourite out of the desserts. The Osmanthus Jelly (top left) paired Osmanthus flower with wolfberries, said to have many health benefits including promoting beautiful skin, aiding digestion and detoxification, and relieving fatigue. Not only it’s good for you, it has a wonderful aroma with just right amount of sweetness. The Soft Cotton Cake (bottom) is basically that: soft and cottony. Very airy texture yet a little mousse like which intrigues me. I also enjoyed the Green Tea Cake (top right) with a strong Matcha flavour. They are all good!

Couple of weeks ago, we were invited to newly opened New Shanghai Legend in Publika for a little tasting session. Some of you might know of their other outlet in Pavilion KL which serves exclusively Dim Sum. The new outlet has a slightly more extensive menu, with main course dishes.

Situated right in the E.A.T. village at Publika (which dons thematic Chinese art decor with beautiful antique-looking paintings and calligraphy), New Shanghai Legend fits right in with the theme. The interior is decked out mainly with wood structures, with a hint of Victorian inspired by the French Concession. Reminiscent of the elegant and vibrant Shanghai in the 1930s. This outlet has a seating capacity of 50. Suitable for family dining, business meetings, even a romantic date.

We started our dinner with this refreshing appetiser: Radish Roll (with Carrot filling). The vegetables were pickled, so they are crunchy with a lovely balance of tartness and sweetness. Well executed and elegantly presented.

Another cold dish, and I enjoyed the texture of the Jelly fish. A little spicy kick helps too. The Chicken was tender enough, but a bit on the bland side.

Here comes the hot appetisers. First the Deep fried White Bait with Salted Egg. Salted egg always adds that little “something something” to the batter. It pretty much makes anything taste good. This was no exception.

A little crispy, a little chewy with plenty of spiciness. This dish was very popular with the ladies (and the lone guy). A flavour explosion.

I love Enoki Mushrooms in any form. When deep fried, they taste a little nutty with a slight piquancy. The crunchy stalks had me going back for more.
