Earth tones, dark woods and brick walls make Modern Shanghai a chic Chinese dining spot at Yoho Mall in Yuen Long. One has to keep in mind though that the restaurant is usually bustling during peak lunch and dinner hours, so the dining area tends to be quite noisy. There’s an open kitchen where you can observe chefs working on their specialties. The restaurant offers a wide selection of regional Chinese dishes, seafood, noodles and dim sum, and for the most part, most of the dishes are well executed and portions for the mains are good for sharing. For starters, try the chef’s special pan-fried xiao long bao, which has a crispy bun and well-seasoned soup with tender meat. A great dish to try is the restaurant’s version of a Hangzhou favourite, sautéed shrimps with Longjing tea leaves. The sweetness of the tea leaves gives the fresh shrimps a boost of flavour. Finish off the meal with fresh mango pudding, which is a great mix of tangy and sweet. Service time is incredibly good, the dishes were served in record time, however service needs improvement, as the staff was curt and seemed like they were in a rush to get diners out the door. If going with a large group, arrive before 1pm or 7pm to avoid queueing.
