“Western eatery in Shanghai”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2013

Joined some colleagues for a social night out here on the evening of the F1 Grand Prix in Shanghai - it got very busy! However, the food was OK, usual pub fare of burgers, ribs and so on. The place is very much a sports bar with wide screen TV's showing football, etc. but they managed to serve a decent pint of Guinness which was a mercy.

If however, you have enjoyed proper bars in the Emerald Isle, don't expect the same craic here!

“pleasant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2013

Slightly price, but nice closed-in grassy area for kids to play in or to relax in outside. Nice in the summertime.

“What happened to O'Malleys???????”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2013

Not been in 2 years. O'Malleys used to be an Irish pub..... NO MORE!! The whole point of an Irish pub is well.. It is Irish! Glass of Guiness in one pour, service terrible. The food is so, so. Nobody speaks English, you cannot run a tab. The beer garden has been ripped out. They had a band that murdered every song they sang. They used to have a nice range of Irish whiskey's. Now 2 and even the Bushmills is not available anymore. The new owners should be sued under false representation of a brand. Never go again and will advise all my friends as well. RIP what used to be a Shanghai standard......

“Regular Irish pub”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2013

If you are looking for a pub, you can come here. Pubs are not really my thing but they show soccer and other sports that are hard to find on TV here.

“disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2013

Went early on a Saturday. They were setting up for a private party so sat us upstairs in an empty room with 3 tables and a tv, where they ignored us for about 15 minutes. Finally got a Kilkenny - excellent. Menu was eclectic - irish, mexican and indian (samosas), but we decided not to stay.
