First taste of a New Shanghaiese Restaurant in Chatswood – Shanghai Stories 1938

I went shopping with my wife last weekend in Chatswood. At around lunch time, we felt hungry and we decided to have a shanghaiese lunch at New Shanghai Restaurant. However, there was a very long queue so we decided to have lunch somewhere else.

While we were walking towards Chatswood Chase, we saw a new Shanghaiese Restaurant called Shanghai Stories 1938 in the new building off Victoria Ave. We then changed our mind to have lunch in there.

We ordered the traditional Shanghaiese Dishes – Xiao Long Bao (Steamed Pork and Broth Bun) and Pan Fried Pork Bun.

The food there are nice, although the price is a bit more expensive than New Shanghai Restaurant, however, what you pay is what you get. You get BETTER service, BETTER food, Cleaner environment.

We only paid $35.4 for 2 persons, including tea and 5 different dishes(dim sum).

I will definately go again in the near future and I highly recommend this restaurant for people who like Shanghaiese food.
