Nice two/three story restaurant in the French Concession area of Shanghai. Far from "undiscovered," it still represents an authentic slice of Yunnan style food fused with more mainstream Chinese and South East Aisan food. The bar on the first floor is cozy and the main dining rooms on floors 2 and 3 are very lively. Great place to dine with... More

Excellent food at reasonable prices. Particularly pleased that they managed to make the food spicy without compromising flavour (and having the dish end up tasting like chili and nothing else). Service was good, but could've been more attentive -it's a dimly-lit place and getting servers' attention isn't always easy. Acoustics in the place allowed for private conversations, simultaneously allowing the... More

Really interesting dishes from various cultures from within and around China. Lots to choose from. Lemon with Honey Juice is wonderfully refreshing- and even better with a shot of gin. Enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Hard to get a taxi in this area on a Friday night. Very close to the Bund.

This is a beautiful restaurant with very good food, an extensive menu and excellent service. The waitress asked us if there were any foods we did not want to eat. Our friends were vegetarian, which can be a bit challenging in China, but not here. The food was really interesting and we really enjoyed it, especially the pork belly (we... More

Great place, best food in Shanghai, most enjoyable atmosphere. Extensive menu but not over complicated and a very good selection of wines.

The staff at the Marriott Shanghai City Centre hotel suggested this restaurant. It features Yunnan cuisine, another region of China. the restaurant is very atmospheric. You are seated at rustic tables with what appear to be large hammered copper funnels covering each plate. These are removed when food arrives. the dishes are regional and quite tasty. They are also quite... More

This was one of the most interesting meals we had in Shanghai! The assortment was great and each dish was as good or better than the next. Everyone was extremely attentive and the meal was served very quickly! Everything was delicious as well as a wonderful atmosphere!

If you want to enjoy lighter Chinese cuisine in a warm and trendy atmosphere try Lost Heaven. Good variety of wines are offered with a great choice of different dishes. The Yunnan Folk Cuisine is very delicious.

A highly recommended restaurant on the Bund in Shanghai. It has a nice selection of wines and a great menu to suit locals and travellers. I was with a large group of people but noted that there were also couples and smaller parties, all enjoying the evening. The rooftop bar is relaxing and the multiple bar areas ensure that you...

Food here is great. Have tried many dishes and most of them have been very tasty. Quality is consistently high. Recommend the Ancient Trail Chicken, the vegetable pancake, black bean cod, tofu with eggplant(cold dish) and grilled pork slices. Never fails to satisfy. Place could be a little dim but it is great for a date venue. At the same... More
