Di Shui Dong
With two locations in the heart of the city, Di Shui Dong is a longtime favorite for Shanghai locals and expats. It’s not exactly known for its polished service or décor; in fact, the ambience here is slightly seedy. But the delicious Hunan-style dishes and domestic beers, sold for dirt-cheap prices, more than make up for that. Perennially packed and cheerful, Di Shui Dong is ideal for fun group dinners on weekends.
