Lost Heaven is worth a visit when in Shanghai. The place is huge, but the dimly-lit athmosphere means that you don't really notice that you're in a big room with a lot of fellow diners. The service was fast, attentive and friendly. The shrimp spring rolls for starters, the braised eggplant and the prawns in tomato sauce were superb choices!... More

Went there on a Thursday night and it was packed so remember to book in advance. I had been to the other branch on Gaoyou Road several times but this branch has a good location if you are planning to take visitors to East Nanjing Road and/or the Bund before dinner. The only negative point for me was the noise,... More

Good food, international crowd, excellent decor, service is very very good. Jovial and smiling staff. Wish they have the Yunnan Flowers that are cooked. Delicious food! We also enjoyed the lounge upstairs, good DJ, good drinks, great time. The location is next to a building that is being renovated, so it took us some time to find.

Came here in our last nite in sh. A short walk from our hotel, we had driven past it in cabs a few times without even realizing it. No reservation, was seated right away. We tried a variety of dishes, one chicken, one beef, and one seafood. All were delish. Great service, the service team we had readily offered suggestions... More

Lost Heaven was recommended by a friend living in Shanghai, as well as the hotel, so I made the decision to go to Lost Heaven instead of Hunan House, assuming it would be good. First of all, it is HUGE. There are 4 or five floors and the little red lights make for good ambience and the tables have unusual... More

Picked this restaurant as it had good reviews in trip advisor. They were justified. It's a little bit out of the way, but worth finding. It's a chinese restaurant that specialises in Southern China food. The decor is stunning and visually very impactfull. The menu was well presented, good range and food was good quality and tasty. Service was pretty... More

It was so difficult to choose from the menu as all the dishes sounded delectable. The beer and wine list was very limited however, but this is China after all. This is a very expat restaurant and menus are in Chinese and English. The food we ate was absolutely declicious. The service was friendly but very amateur.

I like basically everything, the place, the atmosphere, and the FOOD. Go there without hesitation. Price are not that expensive for such a reputation. Suit better for a date than a group dinner.

Recommended by my good friend currently on work assignment in Shanghai, it took a little effort to find, and we had to run the gauntlet of touts and other characters all along The Bund waterfront. But arriving & sitting at the bar (in the evening "haze') made the effort worthwhile. The ambience immediately relaxes, and I strongly recommend reservations as... More

I had never eaten Yunnan folk cuisine before and after this wonderful experience I will be keeping it on my short list. The shrimp spring rolls were fantastic. Green beans lightly fried in shrimp oil were fresh and crisp. The spicy Chicken was tender and not spicy hot. The roasted pork slices were topped with finely chopped chive and cilantro... More
