Shanghai Dalston

41 Kingsland High Street, Dalston, London, London, E8 2JS
Find this good neighbourhood Chinese restaurant in what was until recently a 'Pie and Eel' shop.

Because the building is 'listed', the original shop-front is largely intact, as is the front half of the restaurant which still has its original oak booths, tiled walls and Victorian mirrors. A dining extension to the rear makes you realise that you're in a Chinese restaurant.

They specialise in dim sum and seafood - the former only being offered during the day. Both are of high quality and some of the seafood, using luxury items such as crab and lobster (both offered in a choice of ways) offer excellent value.

Starters such as 'Steamed Prawn Dumplings'; 'Satay Chicken'; 'Salt and Pepper Asparagus' and 'Sichuan Hot and Sour Soup' set the style for starters.

Maybe to be followed by 'Sweet and Sour Monkfish Slices'; 'Singapore Vermicelli'; 'Chicken with Straw Mushrooms in Oyster Sauce' or 'Sliced Duck with Ginger'.

They hold regular special evenings for lovers of karaoke - so enquire if this appeals to you.
