Good Hotel for Indians. Tending towards South Indian cuisine. Even Vegetarians & Jains in our group were also happy. Muslim travellers were happy to know that the food served is Halal

On the whole road, I could not find the place. Even a local said she had not heard of this!!! Probably address is wrong. Thank good for Saffron which was 5 minute walk away.

Amazing Indian food in Shanghai!! We opted for parcel service as planned for treat at friend's place. Loved it. We were returning from Shantou and running out of packed food. It was more joyful than anticipated!!

I had a terrible experience at Indian Kitchen. Firstly, the waiter could not understand what I wanted to order than finally ended up bringing a wrong dish that I had to sent back. The chef has no clue of how north indian dishes are made. I ordered a daal makhnai and it was the worst I had ever had in... More

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighborhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
