Description: If you are looking for authentic French food in Shanghai seek no more! Le Saleya is just the place you want to be.Visiting Le Saleya is like being beamed up to the South of France in a family style establishment where owners get their hands dirty; where waiters run everywhere shouting out your order loudly, where the wine flows to pair traditional French dishes and ravish your palate; and where the kitchen door is widely opened, just because there is nothing to hide. Quite the opposite indeed. Proud of our sourcing and savoir-faire we love to share our methods, our kitchen stories, and our passion with our guests. There’s even a tiny special guests and friends’ kitchen table for the purists and the foodies that want to find out what being first in line during a “coups-de-feu” feels like.In January 2014, Le Saleya unveiled the next chapter in the restaurant’s history: a significant redesign, the extension of our terrace and a brand new menu designed by our Chef Philippe Charon. French style Suckling Pig, Pan-fried Goose Liver, Croustillant de Joue de Boeuf just to cite a few of our signature dishes that are to be washed down with a Pouilly Fuissé, a Bordeaux or a Côtes du Rhône, the epicurean way…Le Saleya is all about generosity, conviviality, memories, and a shared pleasure around the table. It shows a certain lifestyle and French tradition so rare to find in China.

One of my all times favorite spots in shanghai. For many years I've done here. The food is good. The service friendly , foreign and hopeful. Homy atmosphere and good wines. Certainly the greatest bistro in town.

Went here with our friends who eat here often (as well as their other locations.) Service, food, wine list was all very good. Got to love a small place that the owner is actively involved with the comfort of every customer. I will order a filet often and this has to be the best I've had in China so far.... More

Went to eat twice there for lunch each time, with wife and friends, and we loved it. The food is very classic for a brasserie, a compilation of all famous dishes you can find in Paris or Province since a century or more..... and it is what we wanted! Prompt service, good sizes portions, very accurate taste. You are in... More

This little bistro on Chagle Rd. has a charming little patio I the front. That's what caught my attention when I decided to stop for set menu lunch on weekend. The menu choices are limited, service a bit slow, but the ambiance is nice. Food was not bad but not great either. They take credit card over 500 RMB. So... More

First of all, during the WE the menu is the same but the price is 40 RMB more, with no change in our meal. Take care the "Sole" is a ordinary fish but not a sole ! Don't ask to change something vegetables instead of patatoes "too complex for the Chef", the "creme brulee" was cold, normaly the top must... More

There are many good French restaurants in Shanghai and this is not one of them. Positives: The service was good and the atmosphere was nice. The food overall was very average, at best. A bit disappointing considering it's a basic menu.

We went there with some friends a first time and everything went well. Then when we returned the chef had changed and he was terrible. Add also the fact there was only one other table when we were here, although it was Thursday evening. Very honestly, I am not that picky in terms of restaurants but this was like the... More

Was there twice, as the owner gets the meat from his own butcher shop, it's frech and no risk to eat it french style rear. Enjoyed but it's not really cheap, count around 300 to 400 RmB per person for starter, main dish, dessert + Beer, more if you take wine
