    Excellent Dim Sum as always, new layout for social distancing is well thought out and does not harm the excellent dining experience 20 out of 10 :-)

    Fantastic night out. After 3 months of lock-down a great way to get back to some form of normality. The restaurant have obviously spent a great deal of money to guarantee the safety of their customers, with temperature checks and sanitisation on entry and all tables being segregated by screening. Staff were great and didn't make anyone feel segregated and the food was fantastic.

    This is the second time we have visited Shanghai 1814. Food and service was excellent and we will definitely be returning. Have already recommended it to friends here in Christchurch/ Bournemouth so hopefully they will visit as well.

    Very much enjoyed our meal, the restaurant is very nicely decorated and the staff especially Cally were very polite and helpful, if there was one thing that does not got in with the decor is the choice of music which was really loud and became annoying whereas Chinese music in the background would have fitted the surroundings. Otherwise 10/10.
