Yè Shanghai Shanghai Turns 20

By Shanghai Family 2021-09-10 13:13:17

The name Yè Shanghai, in Chinese, directly translates to "Shanghai in the evening". It is also a line from a classic popular song from the 80s that carries a nostalgic feeling for most local Shanghaiese.


As early as 1998, Paul Hsu, a well-known Chinese American restaurateur, founded the 'Yè Shanghai' brand and opened the first restaurant in Admiralty, Hong Kong. Bringing dining concepts from the west combined with his love for Shanghai cuisine into the country, the restaurant does not only focus on the ingredients, but also the dining atmosphere that embodies the nostalgic Shanghai lifestyle.  Today, Yè Shanghai has four outlets in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Taipei, which have won one Michelin Stars and Michelin Plates for many years.



In 2002, Tony Chi, a world-renowned architect and design wizard, personally planned and designed a Shikumen building originally built in 1928 in the old Shanghai architectural style, bringing Yè Shanghai Shanghai to life.


Combining "new" and "old" features, Yè Shanghai Shanghai presents a paradigm for an innovative impression of the city, which is unexpected but captivating. Small interconnected rooms in traditional "longtang" have been turned into private dining rooms, viewing the scene of crowded passers-by in the old alley through the floor-to-ceiling glass.  The designer saying "The scenery here seems to be telling: Once upon a time...".



Deep-rooted traditions and rich history mixing with futuristic designs appear in Yè Shanghai's dishes. The head chef of Yè Shanghai Shanghai defines his unique interpretation of Chinese food in the new era - integration and creation. By utilizing healthy food ingredients in high quality and simplifying the cooking process, the original fresh taste of the food can be retained so as to create a fusion of Chinese and Western cuisine. By keeping up with the mission and craftsmanship of traditional dishes, we wish to attract all walks of life around the globe to explore and visit. We will endeavor to serve innovative Shanghai cuisine and fine wines to our dear guests.
