Advantages A great night out, party with friends, good food, laugh a minute.....etc
Disadvantages not good if you're the shy and retiring type. Not enough ladies loo's
Shanghai ShuffleI first visited Shanghai Shuffle Cantonese karaoke Restaurant for a Christmas party night in 2003. We were a group of ladies (15 of us) looking for someone fun to go where we could all stick together.
Shanghai Shuffle was recommended to me by a friend who advised us to book way ahead in advance because it gets very busy around Christmas period. I called to book a table for 15 for a Wednesday night in December, and was told every night in December was fully booked already! Ok you'll be thinking I must have left it a bit late for every night to be fully booked? But this was at the beginning of July!!!!Anyway I was then told we could be booked in for the last Wednesday in November as they were now offering Christmas party nights in November because they had a lot of demand for it. So I grabbed the booking and promptly sent off the cheque of £5 per head as a deposit! The rest payable on the evening (see below for price lists)
So the big night arrived and all of my friends and I got all glammed up and got our tinsel out for our hair….sad I know but hey we're young(ish) ahem youngest was 20 eldest was over 50…..We arrived at Shanghai Shuffle at about 7:15pm in time for our 7:30pm booking, And were shown to our seats in what I can only say was a seemingly small restaurant which hosted a tiny dance floor and even tinier stage! I think there was around 7-8 large tables which could fit between 15-20 people, As soon as my group had sat down and settled a Chinese waitress came round asking for our drinks order (first drink was on the house) woohoooo my kinda place!
Soon after that another waiter came around to take our food order (see menu on website below) We didn't wait too long before our starters started to arrive. I chose the chicken noodle soup which was delicious mmmm, followed by a chicken curry which came in a bowl and a huge bowl of rice was placed on table too from which you helped yourself. That too was delicious! And then My favourite part of the meal was the dessert…………I chose strawberry cheesecake which was truly scrumptious (licking my lips at thought)Of course you'd be forgiven for thinking that this was just like any other restaurant but just before you start eating, Tony the Chinese guy who I think owns the restaurant comes out in his full Scottish dress! Kilt and all (and let me tell you he proved he was a true Scotsman) not for the faint hearted I can tell you! He welcomes each and every one of his guests and then tells us that this is a restaurant with a difference….in that there are no rules except one and that was to have fun and enjoy yourselves, dance on the chairs, dance on the tables get up and sing whenever you feel the urge! Now ya talking Tony me old pal waheyyy.
So then he introduces the lovely David and gorgeous Kathleen who are the restaurants resident Karaoke hosts and are fantastic singers!
They kick off the evening with a lively song which gets the crowd in the mood, and all this is whilst we're sitting eating our lovely meal!
