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.

    The staff were incredibly accommodating and kind, the service was beyond all expectations and the food was by far the single best food experience we've ever had. We can't wait to go back again soon and try even more amazing food. 10/10

    My friend has an onion and garlic allergy and clearly requested her food did not contain this. The food arrived and onion was clearly visible but the waitress still claimed she “didn’t think” it contained any. The dish was replaced but this could have horrendous consequences for anyone with an allergy 😮

    Welcome was good but service was slow, we had 2 tiger beers that we ordered but we're flat, maybe down to the glass? We changed to Heineken which seemed better, food was good and was full of flavour.

    Our first time at this beautiful contemporary Chinese restaurant the likes of which you generally only find in London like Hakkasan where a lot of inspiration has been taken from, both the food thanks to the executive chef and the interior decor and style. The food was wonderful and plenty of it per portion. The staff from being welcomed when we arrived and throughout our meal was friendly and attentive. We’ll definitely be back and would encourage anyone to go and have a lovely evening

    First visit, great service from start to finish, all dishes excellent. Only suggestion would be that they introduce a more secure cloakroom service.
