Bund Shanghai Restaurant is always packed, even though it doesn’t serve the best Shanghainese specialties in town. The casual spot simply gets the job done, especially if you’re in the area and need a reliable spot for a group. Families pass around steamer baskets of xiao long bao and friends eat pan-fried pork buns and lion’s head meatballs in booths before bar hopping nearby. This place is a basic set-up with staff whizzing across the dining room to take orders and clear plates so fast they practically blur. But you’re here to fill up on solid homestyle dishes that keep the place a Chinatown mainstay.
