New Shanghai Restaurant, A Fresh Taste of Modern Chinese Cuisine in Dubai Mall

by DubaiCity Author

New Shanghai, a popular casual dining destination from Australia, arrived in Dubai in 2018. The opening of its first restaurant was on the ground floor of The Dubai Mall, one of the busiest shopping malls in the world. Offering a taste of traditional and contemporary Chinese cuisine in an ambient setting inspired by Shanghai’s bustling, colourful streets, the new restaurant provides a fun and authentic culinary experience for Dubai residents and visitors to enjoy. At the heart of New Shanghai are ancient family recipes passed down from generation to generation, including its secret dumpling sauce that adds a deliciously unique and moreish flavour.

The popular restaurant opened as an authentic Chinese dining concept by the Chen family in Australia in the 1990s continues to bring an authentic taste of Chinese culture to the table in every dish. The beautiful décor, inspired by 1930s Shanghai, features hand-painted murals and cobblestone flooring, which add to the vibrant yet relaxing restaurant atmosphere. One of the restaurant’s key highlights is a unique dumplings theatre which offers an opportunity to observe the art of making dim sums and dumplings.

Each dish is freshly prepared when the order is received in the kitchen, ensuring the highest quality and best flavour. For those looking for a truly unique taste inspired by the Middle East, the restaurant also offers a Camel Xiao Long Bao, possibly the first in the world. At New Shanghai, the establishment takes pride in providing a range of authentic Shanghai-style cuisine. From noodles and soups to rice and vegetable dishes, there is something to please every palate. The soup dumplings are a must-try, which everyone can see being made in its dumpling theatre.

New Shanghai operates in key cities across Australia (Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane) and Shanghai. Its expansion into the Middle East with AZADEA Group begins in Dubai, rolling out into other markets across the Middle East over the next five years. In an interview, Mert Askin, President of Food & Beverage at AZADEA Group, said: “Our mission at AZADEA Group is to provide exceptional lifestyle experiences for our customers, and New Shanghai delivers a differentiated dining experience that brings diverse, authentic new flavours to the table.
