Best pho soup in shanghai, the soup is so authentic. Real hangover cure after a crazy clubbing night. Spring roll is amazing, watch out, it is a bit hot, but so nice with lettuce and fish sauce. Absolutely my favorite Vietnamese restaurant in shanghai so far. Must be place after a huge night out!!!
I had a facial here on Saturday - really nice place. The woman that took care of me, Patricia (hope that's right!), was really lovely. I wanted a deep cleansing facial with extractions and it was brilliant. Seriously, the facialist is like the Blackhead Whisperer! Normally extractions make me squeeze my own hands and weep, but she was amazing. Best facial I've had in Shanghai.
I've been buying Ambrosia products for ages--yogurt, cheese, everything. Recently, I got some Greek yogurt that tasted fine but was not up to the usual quality. I let the owners, Daniel and Myra, know about the situation and they immediately fixed it. The next batch of yogurt was perfect. Customer service here is fantastic, something that is all too rare in Shanghai.
We went for dinner around 7 pm on Sat, the place was not busy so was able to get a table for 3 quickly. The fist thing I noticed was dirty walls with food and oil stains absolutely disgusting. We ordered chicken satay, chicken red curry, and squid with Thai chili and 3 other dishes. The 3 dishes I listed above were bad. The satay was just a strip of chicken on a stick, not even a grill mark on it period, red curry was precooked and extremely sweet, and the squid was not even fresh. What a disappointment!! I would not return here. Oh the 100% fresh mango pineapple juice was served warm and out of can instead.
