The three-decade old Great Shanghai is a longstanding Chinese Shanghai cuisine (a combination of Chinese Jiangsu and Zhejiang cuisine) specialty restaurant in Bangkok, though its food is far from outstanding, it is the only authentic and banquet-grade Shanghainese restaurant present in Bangkok.
Two decades ago, while her food quality was good, I ate at Great Shanghai quite often; and for now, I eat there only once every five years. A few weeks ago I went there to exercise my 'every-five-year' duty and I found that her wok-fried Chinese eel in garlic and dark gravy and the sour and spicy soup are so good not to be missed.
