Shanghai 30's - Oxford - visited Saturday 1st October - the food, atmosphere and company were lovely, unfortunately it was such a warm night and the room we were in was so stuffy and hot. We did actually go there again for lunch on the Sunday!! You can get a quick chinese lesson when you visit the toilets!!
A lovely setting but the menu and quality of the food was only mediocre. The availability of chicken dshes was particularly disappointing.
We booked Shanghai 30s (Oxford) using the 2for1 main course offer, which worked out to be a great deal. I had been once before without the offer and found it too expensive. The food is nice, though not remarkable.
I booked with Shanghai 30s because of the 2 for 1 deal on top-table.
I'm usually based in Hong Kong, and feel that Chinese Restaurants are often 'hit and miss' on replicating authentic Chinese Food. However, Shanghai 30s did a reasonable job on the dishes.
With the 2 for 1 deal, I felt that I got decent value.
The ambience was probably the best part of the experience. The restaurant was well presented, with a few quirky twists. I loved the mandarin lessons playing in the bathroom!

The atmosphere and service was excellent. The food taste could have been better and was a bit too salty because we were dying of thirst a few hours later.
Shanghai 30s in Oxford occupies a wonderful old building, with views of Christ Church oposite. Service was very good, but food was disappointing. It was the sauces that let it down. Watery and thin on taste - with little subtlety. Almond chicken starter was nice but the lemon sauce tasted as though it had come out of a bottle. A seafood dish submerged in unappetising brown gloop - no depth - tasted of soy and cornflour Pity becasue the decor and location are charming.Expensive without TT offer.
The Oxford Shanghai 30s was very good!
Shangahi 30's in Oxford was a delight of good food and dim sum in particular in great surroundings, with excellent service.
I visited Shanghai 30's on St Aldates in Oxford. It is a n attractive venue and the staff were friendly and gave good service. My friend and I shared an appetizer platter which we really enjoyed but I was totally disappointed with my duck main course and side dish of broccoli, neither of which were visually appetizing. Both dishes lacked texture and flavour.I have to say that my friend was quite happy with her chicken dish and so maybe I was just unlucky.
Shanghai 30's, Oxford. The service was perfect - very attentive without being over the top. The atmosphere and decor was good though the tablescloths could have been a bit cleaner at the start. The food was good (and there was a large choice of dishes), but not outstanding - maybe we could have chosen better. The portions were generous. Overall very good value - would recommend.
Shanghai 30's Oxford very good food and good service. A place to return to.
I have been to this restaurant twice whilst I have been staying in Oxford (including yesterday) and it is great. The service is impeccable, their is an interest array of dishes (including a spicy menu), it has a great atmosphere and was just what I was looking for here.
Will definitely be reccommending it to friends when they are staying here and looking forward to visiting again in the future.
Lunch time at Shanghai 30's in Oxford was reasonably busy and the food was good but the service and timing in bring the food and plates to the table left a lot to be desired.
As ever the food is great here. Went this time as part of a large group and the service was confused and it took about a hour to get any food out to us. Some nibbles on the table would have be appreciated!
Shanghai 30's, Oxford
Excellent food, attentive but unobstrusive service and a relaxed and atmospheric ambience in the evening.
We ate until midnight, were the last customers to leave yet were never rushed.
The waiters and waitresses were very helpful with the menu and recommendations for dinner
