Yongfoo Elite was originally opened as a member's only, private club (hence, the name). And the fact that Yongfoo Elite is no longer private still confuses some people. This Shanghainese restaurant is housed in a wonderful old 1930's villa, on a lovely phoenix-tree lined street - Yongfu Road. The building was previously used as the British Consulate in Shanghai.

The garden, on your way in to the restaurant, is lovely. In the evening, candles light your way. And if you go on a nice day, the garden seating is fabulous. Definitely one of the nicest in Shanghai. Inside, the club is quite elegantly decorated, with rather authentic-looking flowery wallpaper. There are many nice, old-style touches in the decor.

The Chinese food at Yongfoo Elite is less than spectacular. But noone goes there for the food; this restaurant is one that will delight visitors to Shanghai and will give them a good impression of how the elite used to live in Shanghai during its glory days of the 1920's and 30's.
