    The Robin hood Pub & Restaurant in Bangkok is one of my regulars for good English food and beers.

    The best way to get to the Robin hood Pub is to take the BTS skytrain and beat the traffic. Get off at Phrom Pong station, take exit 5 and go straight at the bottom of the stairs. You can’t miss it.

    The Robin Hood is a rustic style English tavern nestled in the heart of Sukhumvit. Dressed with wooden floorboards and classic long bar. This split-leveled pub has a warm homely feel and attracts a lively mix of regular international patrons.

    Pub Opening hours start from 9 am with last orders called at Midnight. Extended hours are offered for certain local and international holidays or special occasions.

    The Restaurant serves food from 9.00am and will take orders all the way up until 11pm at night

    The pub has many televisions and 2 giant screens, showing sporting events from around the world such as Premier League Football, Cricket, Rugby, F1, NFL & more. There is live music every Wednesday night & Full English commentary on all the big Sporting Events.

    The menu features tasty Traditional pub grub as well as an extensive International & Thai Favorites Menu. Also our hearty weekend roasts  with a choice of Roast Beef & Yorkshire pudding or Roast Pork with home made Apple sauce and crackling.

    This pub actually has a decent happy hour and also some very good nightly drinks deals which don’t just include the usual local brews at some obscure hour which I very much appreciate. Well managed.

    Hey guys,

    I’m from Portugal and next week I’m going to an interview regarding a job as a chef in Shanghai.

    I really have no idea what to expect in terms of salary. I know the package will include housing and trip but I have no idea how much they are expecting to pay me.

    It’s not for a hotel, it will be a small wine shop that want me to develop dishes to open a new restaurant.

    Can any of you guys give a rough idea on how much is it a decent net salary for a chef position in Shanghai?

    Also, if I want to enter the private chef business, is there any website I should consider looking into?

    Thanks for your help,

    Best regards.

    Salary ranges are huge in Shanghai, from very very low to very high. So on the limited information you have given it is hard to come up with any number.

    But given that it’s by the sound of it small business, I wouldn’t expect miracles.

    Also, before even talking salary you want to make sure that they are able and willing to get you a proper work permit.

    Coming back to the salary. What is ‘decent’?

    I am sure there are many (local) chefs in Shanghai below 10k RMB a month which is not a bad salary by local standards but far from what I would personally call decent nor something a Westerner could live off.

    Question is: What is your motivation to come to Shanghai:

    The experience?

    No job back home?

    Making good money / savings?

    In general for a foreign chef the minimal would be 25K, 35K easy and more if you work in the more upscale/famous places. Housing/transport allowance etc are also negotiable on top of it.

    Now regarding a small shop/ potentially opening a restaurant…. All alarm bells start ringing.. Shanghai restaurants often don’t last long, or don’t even get to pre-opening. Many restaurant might open with a foreign chef until you have trained your assistant and than the owner suddenly decides they don’t need you anymore..I don’t want to be too negative but without a safety net the changes of ending on a dead-end street are huge. For the little details you have shared, I guess 85% chance on a “I told you so” experience.

    If you want to come to shanghai, it’s safer to join a well-know and lasting company. Go through decent job hunters who know the local market. Join Hotel groups or F&B groups who have several places and have been around for more than 5 years.

    Trust me, I’ve been there and I have seen seen more all around me. I thought I was employed by a world-wide chain, however all that doesn’t count in China. The owners are pretty much free to do whatever they want.

    Watch out! Sounds a bit dodgy that they have not told you your salary before leaving your own country.

    I am a Chinese Canadian Chef, 16 years of professional kitchen experiences and also trying to find a nice decent pay Chef job in Shanghai. However, the salary range I see are under RMB 20,000 a month. I don’t think Private Chefs are popular in Shanghai, but its getting popular in Hong Kong. However, the salary in HK are still very low for Chefs …

    I was just going to suggest HK. Mainlanders are not into inviting people into their homes. Will take ages before that happens.

    The way they “Dine” here is more like extend version of fast food. In at 6pm and out at 7pm.

    Well a proper dining experience would go hand in hand with a decent conversation, and just asking things about stock exchange and /or how many houses someone has is not going to do it.
