Pricy, but worth it. All dishes were so carefully and beautifully plate, and so full of flavors! And the staff alert but not too pushy. A dinner to remember!

My wife and I dined here on the last night of our visit to Shanghai in early May at the suggestion of the concierge at the Peninsula Hotel. I don't know if it helped that we came from there, but GM Alex Siew and chef Jordy treated us extremely well. For example, when we arrived our table wasn't quite ready... More

Lovely restsurant in The French Concession. It was nice to shy away from Shaihanese food after a lengthy visit. Very modern food with a quiet atmosphere. Very enjoyable. Drinks were quite pricey.

A good fusion restaurant, the food was delicious in brunch, very family style touch and the kids could enjoy themselves. Perhaps the common issue in Xintiandi, the wait staffs have a sharp eye, don't like to smile unless you tip them. But all in all a nice place to go on Sunday afternoon.

Lonely Planet says it's a hip and good restaurant. Yes, indeed. The restaurant with open kitchen also serves 2 to 4 courses brunch menu with lots of selection you can make. Servers are excellent and food is good, too.

we had been there for Team dinner with group of 14 persons. the place looks very elegant with rustic decors and fine crafted furniture and dim lighting. Every dish we had was prepared with some specialty or at least looked great. The taste buds loves the great looking food. The service was quick and effective.

We've lunched and dined at T8 a couple times over the years and our last visit was just after the NY in 2015. It's a good address in an otherwise very touristic Xintiandi, with the same plump chef, nice open kitchen but not very smiley staff. My favourite dish was the Grade 9 Wagyu Beef I ate a few years...

Visited several times and always enjoyed this restaurant in the middle of Xintiandi. Love the area and the interior of the restaurant - with the open kitchen on view. Higher priced than the surrounding restaurants, but worth it. Ive eaten at several other places close, but I prefer T8.

Staying in Xintiandi

Neighbourhood Profile
Xintiandi
The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and shops along Madang Road. The pleasant Taipinghu Park provides the area with green space and is also home to Shanghai Fashion Week twice a year. It’s not all glitter and glamour, though, as the rise of Danshui Road has given the Xintiandi area a shot of toned-down character. Small bars and cafes, mostly owned by locals, have people hanging out in a formerly quiet, unassuming part of the neighborhood.
