The Sailors' authentic menu has drawn customers of all nationalities -- including many enthusiastic Britons.
This restaurant is co-owned by three Fudan University finance major graduates: Sean Xue, Paul Zhu and Tommy Tang, all 25 years old.
“We knew nothing about cooking, we learned everything from the Internet,” explained Xue.
High quality, Low prices
While many places around town serve fish-and-chips, The Sailors is probably Shanghai's first dedicated chippy.
“We only started thinking about what business to run after we found this space on Yongkang Lu,” said Shanghai-native Tang. “We did a lot of research and we couldn't find any fish-and-chips shops in Shanghai.”
Portions aren't huge, but for the quality on offer you wouldn't expect such low prices in Shanghai. The various fish -- pollack (RMB 32), flounder (RMB 35), and sea bass (RMB 38) -- are all wrapped in crispy batter and served with chips and homemade tartar sauce.
On the snack menu are shrimps (RMB 25), squid rings (RMB 20) and scallops (RMB 25). Coffee costs RMB 10-16 or cold beer (RMB 12).
