Pros: vegan opties zalig eten vriendelijk personeel

Good Food in Nice Setting - Edit

The menu is presented with images of the dishes and described in both Chinese and English. For some of the dishes, the English translation will not be that helpful as some of the words are not easily identifiable. We were impressed that the restaurant offers a very extensive selection including soup, stir fries, dim sum and desserts.

We ordered the roasted chicken nuggets on a skewer, fried rice noodle with spinach and eggplant with fresh basil. The food was served promptly and the dishes were all very good. We selected the glutinous rice ball filled with black sesame paste for our dessert item and it was tasty and not too sweet. The bill came to 175 RMB which we felt was fair value for both the quality of the food and the dining ambience.

Take the Line 6 Metro to Yuanshen Stadium and you will see the stadium once you exit the station.

Excellent Zaozi Shu Tradition - Edit

This is one of four Vegetarian Lifestyle (Jujube, or Zaozi Shu) restaurants in Shanghai. They also have one located in Chengdu, and another one in Ningbo cities.

The food is excellent, but the price tends toward the high end of the moderate range. The portions, though, are good sized (not exceptionally large).

This location we did not find anyone that spoke English. The menu, although in Chinese does have pictures and that should be sufficient.

The wait staff was quite pleasant and friendly.

They take Alipay (支付宝) which is handy.

Although convenient to get to via the #6 line, it may not be easy to find. Go to the north side of the Stadium, main entrance and take the elevator the the third floor.

Pros: Good food, price, and portion size, Easy to get to

Cons: Once at the stadium, not easy to find, May not speak any English, No English on menu

Love it! - Edit

We liked the food there, which is not too salty and no MSG. Very natural, and we noticed they did not use much of mocked meats. We happened to enjoy a rugby game on one afternoon as from outside the window we could see the stadium. It is also very near to one of the metro station.

Pros: friendly staff, could pay by oversea credit cards

so-so - Edit

Cute place with free wifi and friendly service. The night my friends and I came, two of the four dishes we ordered were unavailable, so we ordered based on the waitress's recommendations. Overall, the fare was heavy on mock meats and not altogether notable or elegant-- I remember few dishes that were mostly vegetables. I wouldn't bring finicky eaters here.

Not a bad meal at all, but just okay. Dumplings were our best dish, and a mock chicken curry was rich and as good or a little better than most veg curries in the city. The "fishy eggplant" is not eggplant nor is it fishy-- cabbage and mushrooms in a broth. Desserts are not altogether inspiring-- red bean cakes, papaya with something called peach glue?, etc.

Pros: friendly staff, good value

Cons: serves dairy, not enough vegetable dishes
