Fodor's Review

A veteran of the Shanghai fine dining scene, T8 has garnered its share of headlines for its impressive interior and inspired contemporary cuisine. The restaurant occupies a traditional shikumen house in Xintiandi and has modernized the space with raw stone floors, carved-wood screens, and imaginative lighting that transforms shelves full of glasses into a modern-art sculpture. The kitchen turns out exciting fusion dishes from fresh seasonal ingredients, so the menu changes

with the seasons.

T8 Review

I'm not too sure about the tables on the left-hand side that force the patrons to face other strangers - a bit obnoxious, actually. Our server mixed up our drink order completely. All that said - when our multiple dishes arrived - speedily - it was such a relief, and pleasure, in fact, biting into the foie gras. Whatever they do with the 'ice cream' on the appetizers is flat-out stunning. Better than my meal in Per Se NYC.

An institution in shanghai !

Very glad that we made it to T8 after eating Chinese food for a week. It feels very Asian, warm and inviting. We went for the seasonal tasting menu and had a wonderful selection of different tastes and textures. Some very hard to find boutique wines on the list with some old vintages of opus one as well. Established and consisted place and definitive our pick in Shanghai!
