Chinese (Shanghai)
Shanghai 1814 is an exceptional destination restaurant in an iconic listed building in the heart of Southampton. You won’t have experienced anything quite like it. This is where East meets West in a cacophony of flavour, style, colour and vibrancy. Shanghai 1814 is so-called as the owner’s ancestors opened their first restaurant in Shanghai in 1814 – the time of the Qing Dynasty, China’s final imperial dynasty.

This combination of traditional European architecture with exuberant Chinese interior design is dynamic and exciting. Welcome to Shanghai 1814 and enjoy the ultimate dining experience.

Wow-factor interiors are decadent and glamorous, draped in dazzling chandeliers and adorned with cherry blossom. The menus feature contemporary Chinese dishes that are fresh and flavoursome, created by a Chef who previously worked at Michelin-starred Hakkasan in London’s Mayfair.

    Although the food was more expensive than what my friends and I are used too, it was worth the money 100%. The duck was amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed all of the food. Our waitress (Valentina I think) was so helpful and nice to us. The actual restaurant itself was beautiful and incredible to look at. The toilets were also very clean. The lighting at our table was so lovely as it wasn’t a harsh, bright light over us. The tables were large enough for the 5 of us to sit comfortably and enjoy our food. Overall it was a lovely evening. I would definitely dine here again. Thank you

    Lovely food and great service but music a bit too loud to make easy conversation. Pricey, and compulsory service charge all adds up to occasional treat only

    Lovely atmosphere, lovely food, great service! 12.5% service charge was a bit excessive! Particularly for a table of 2! I would reevaluate that. We will be back though. Thanks for a nice experience

    We had an amazing experience and enjoyed the most delicious food in a comfortable atmosphere. Wish we could afford to go more often. We were treated and looked after so well. A big thank you to you all.

    Visited last night, although not booked we were given a private dining room which was fabulous. We opted for the £65 set meal for all 4 of us and were not disappointed. Amazing food, amazing service, and amazing restaurant, will definitely visit again.
