Respond to Review of Gong De Lin - Godly - Huanghe Rd
by Bob Sultan
Review: This restaurant is also called "Godly" and is apparently a branch of the restaurant on Nanjing Road. This place is easy to find. 21 Huanghe Rd is a large building. There is an elevator on the right side of the lobby that will take you up to the restaurant's second floor location. The place is small, eight tables or so, and the ambiance is pleasant. I like mock-meats (I notice that a lot of people don't) so I ordered the Papaya Chicken... they didn't have that. They suggested another type of Chicken, but they didn't have that either. Finally settled on the Kung Pao chicken which I thought was good. It wasn't breaded, and it wasn't particularly oily... pretty good. I also had spring rolls, but these were certainly nothing special. It seems that the only drinks are teas (a bit pricey). The prices are comparable to the other 'moderate' veggie restaurants I've been to in Shanghai... dishes generally ranged from 25 to 40 RMB. The wait staff wasn't particularly friendly... I felt just a little like I was intruding. Anyway, I think this is a 3.5, so I'll give it a 3.
