As with most Chinese restaurants in Shanghai, Yi Long Court serves food that is meant to be enjoyed in a group. The Cantonese dishes are mostly served family-style (except for lunch), and tables are generally set to fit at least four people, if not six or eight. Tables are spread apart, so you never feel as if you’re on top of other parties. However, for bigger groups (more than six), it’s best to reserve one of the Shanghai restaurant’s seven private dining rooms in the back, as the main dining area is usually pretty hushed. Large groups might feel more comfortable with their own space. The inviting private rooms come with sofas and tables that can comfortably fit up to 12 diners.
