CK Shanghai, 15
Washington St. Wellesley, 781-237-7500
CK Sau "continues the Chinese restaurant tradition
of offering hundreds of dishes from all over China.
Standards are made with such care that the flavors
seem to bounce on the palate. ... Peking ravioli are
much better than the usual and are obviously made in
the restaurant. The little morsels, irregularly
formed and tucked into a thin, gingery sauce, seem
to melt when you bite into them. ... Where CK
Shanghai shines is in the details like its
Shanghai-style appetizers, as well as in its
specialties, saucing, and vegetables. Shanghai
cucumbers have a crisp texture and a cleanly
sweet-sour, vinegary taste. One of Sau's signatures,
sea scallops, boast crisply seared exteriors and a
black pepper sauce that lilts on the palate."
- Alison Arnett,
and you won't mistake this place for another Chinese
"Sau is a
master chef and his finest dishes should be
treasured." CK' Shanghai was selected as
one of 29 best ethnic restaurants.
Chinese with consistently polished quality."
