Friendly Boss Lady. Yummy food just the way Shanghainese likes. Cannot go back to Shanghai right now, but certainly can come to here to satisfy the taste buds. See less

I've never tried eating at a restaurant serving traditional Shanghai style food before, so this is quite an experience. Our friend ordered about about 5 small dishes, 1 boneless duck filled with rice (heard it takes many hours to prep this dish. Pre-order only), and a soupy dessert. All are quite tasty and will definitely return to try other dishes. Downside: it seems there's only 1 person working on the floor. So it does take quite a bit of waiting in between serves. Also there are only a few tables, so book a table just in case. Oh, the ladies toilet cubicle door can't be closed properly. See less

Said they were closed even though their restaurant was occupied by many people. The sign on the front door said open and there opening times ON THEIR DOOR said open until 10pm. I came at 8:50pm. Will not be coming back. Rude and unnacommodating. Possibly why Uber eats is putting these places out of business because we don’t have to deal with people lacking in customer service skills.

I gave it a 2 star because it was something different. Honestly it's not the greatest, all the dishes I had last night tasted the same, using ABC sauce, dark soy sauce, sugar and caramel sauce etc. For a good banquet meal of lots of main courses for a group of 10, it wasn't that special. Price too expensive on cheap products used. See less

This is a truly Asian experience including classic Asian restaurant style - so non-western-standard service and decor - BUT the food is truly authentic, the fragrant eggplant divine and the service very sweet. Come prepared to notice the food and not care about the rest! See less

Authentic Chinese! The service was typically slow, it's the standard for a place like this. This is nothing like your local Chinese takeaway, so keep an open mind. The food was good and unusual at the same time. If you're keen, you should try this place. See less

Food is nice but the place needs to be clean more. They should do some regular cleaning. See less

COMRADES! Have you been in the land of the capitalists for many years and miss the taste of food from the old country? Perhaps you dream of the traditional bamboo soup Comrade mama use to make, using equal volume of water and MSG? Never fear (unless you have health issues where high salt content can kill you, in which case very much fear), August café will have you believing you are back in Shanghai, you can almost taste the socialism. Long live dirty dishes, long live 3% surcharge on credit cards! See less

I bought some vegetarian spring rolls and some vegetables with rice to take-away for lunch at work today (3 July 2015) but it was - without exception - the worst Chinese food I've ever had. The spring rolls were really greasy. The vegetable and rice dish was so disgusting I threw it out. The cauliflower and broccoli was tough and tasteless and and the horrible brown bits of what I can only assume were tofu were uneatable. The rice was swimming in a nasty brown sauce. It was a total waste of $15.50. Considering they cook to order, it was unacceptable. I've had some fantastic takeaway Chinese food from little places here and there, and I expected something very delicious. I just can't get rid of the horrid greasy taste - even from the few mouthfuls I had. I'll stick to my own cooking from now on... See less
