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.

    Superb food and service. We went post daughter's graduation and they gave her a slice of cheesecake as a present. Shame we don't live in Southampton otherwise we would become regulars.

    I thought the food was pretty average. Just like a posh Chinese. The service was poor, only received one glass of water he whole time I was there. Had an issue with my cocktail but still had to have it. It was my wife's birthday which I told them about yet they failed to recognise this but the table next to us got a dessert with happy birthday on it brought out to them . Overall really poor experience and very overpriced

    Our second time of visiting and this was just as good as the first My only minor point is the slow good pork, although very good didn't quite live up to the "chilli" marking it got
