Located in Yangzhou, Jiangsu Province, the homeland of Huaiyang and Shanghai cuisines, Ge Yuan was found and built with Huang Zhiyun, major salt merchant in Huainan and Huaibei in Qing Dynasty (1818), which has been famously celebrated as one of the most historic gardens in China for its ﬁne, elegant and unparalleled architecture graced with breathtaking seasonal views. As an expression of his profound appreciation to bamboo, a symbol of integrity in Chinese culture, Huang decorated his garden with umpteen bamboos. “Ge” is the hieroglyphical character of “bamboo”, while “Yuan” means “garden”.
Gold Garden Shanghai Cuisine is inspired by and dedicated to “Ge Yuan”, by capturing its essence through authentic Huaiyang and Shanghai cuisines in ﬁne dining experience shared with food and culture enthusiasts.
