Privy 5 Overview

1221 Restaurant on Ya’an Xi road near Jiangsu train station in Changning is one of the most notable restaurants in town that presents fine dining in Shanghainese cuisine. The renowned restaurant has a big following of both expats and local clients as they have consistently wowed patrons for the past 8 years that they have immaculately and artistically presented the flavors of Shanghainese food. As for ambiance, there’s just one word for the 1221 restaurant set in an old renovated Chinese mansion – sophisticated. The 1221 menu is geared toward pleasing the western palate by preparing Shanghainese food that is noticeably lighter and less oily as that of food served in other Shanghainese restaurants. The stars of the menu include Shanghai smoked fish, braised pork with vegetables, fried dough (you- tiao) with shredded beef and the drunken chicken. The cold noodle starter dish called la la ji ding does more than arouse the appetite. The crispy duck dish and the beef with very moist sesame bread are also crowd pleasers. Pair the food up with a choice of wine from their extensive drinks list or wash it all down with their special eight-treasure tea called babao-cha. Wine and dine at 1221 restaurant for an excellent contemporary Shanghainese culinary experience.
