After a few weeks in China we were skeptical about going to eat Chinese on our last night in Shanghai. Well, it was well worth it. The place is decorated very ethnic and a lot of red. Very cool. The food was simply spectacular. The salads were great. The green tea leaves salad is not to be missed.

I first went to lost heaven 3yrs ago and returned recently...I'm not sure if it's because since then I've frequented more restaurants in Shanghai that this time round I'm not as blown away. The decor and standard of food is still the same...but something was missing...soulless maybe as I recall a buzz in the air when I walked in previously... More

Amazing location where you can taste super cuisine from Yunnan. Good service and quality with a distinctive touch. Alcoholic Drinks are also recommended too.

This is the nicer one of the Lost Heaven's in Shanghai with a cosy interior. The food is amazing and the place is always crowed with foreigners - book well in advance! It is worth it!!!

Delicious and reasonably priced Yunnan-style food a block off the Bund. The decor is stunning... It's worth going to this restaurant just for a trip to the bathroom.

This restaurant is a very fun and vibrant. The food was very good, and it was well priced. The atmosphere was lively and warm at the same time. It was a very cozy place to meet friends and share a meal and stories. This is a must visit on my next trip.

Lost heaven was recommended to us by a good friend and we're so glad we tried it out. Everything we ordered was amazing! The only con is it's very hard to get a cab at night so we had to walk a long way. The ambience of the restaurant was also nice - good for romantic dates or dining with... More

I would call it a modern Chinese. The two story building is really interesting has abit of culture and style about it. I took a local person for lunch and they were very impressed, took photos to show their friends. The food was good some a little too spicy for me. Wine and beer also good. Staff need more spark,...

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.
