HOME>ABOUT US>Complimentary

Back in 1995, Johnny Moo was Shanghai's first family-run, traditional style malt shop. The cute, cow spotted shop in Gubei filled a void for many home sick foreigners, and quickly developed a loyal following. Over the past years, we developed our menu based on customer preference and new items were added. Soon enough, the burgers at The Moo were being described as "The Best Cheeseburgers in Shanghai" (Shanghai Talk, 1997).  

Today, we're still that same little malt shop with the friendly service and level of quality that the Shanghai community has come to depend on.  With more outlets opening around Shanghai urban and suburban, The Moo remains committed to bringing you great burgers and Shanghai's thickest milkshakes. Our history is a proud one; we remain dedicated to make each and every one who visits Johnny Moo a satisfied and delighted customer.
