I have been going to Lost Heaven at Gaoyou Lu less often than the Bund venue , but after this my 4th visit in 2 years I can confirm that it remains an impressive dining experience. Excellent quality of food for the price, well organised service for Shanghai standards and great atmosphere make it great choice for business, new to... More

We had an absolutely delicious dinner here in October 2014. The interior of Lost Heaven is rich and sultry, replete with wood paneling and deep red banners. The food hails from Northern China, near Mongolia. It was a complete gastronomic surprise and treat, not your typical Chinese fare. Everything was fresh, delicious and delicately seasoned. We especially loved the Chicken... More

I've been here twice now and the food has never failed to impress. Hunan cuisine is impressively tasty with flavour combinations I've not tried before. The menu has a good selection to choose from and even offers a good range of vegetable dishes. The interior decoration is beautiful and the service is very attentive even when they are busy on...

The restaurant named "Lost Heaven" and I can say it is a little treasure in the middle of the city. Delicious food, wide variety of everything from starters, and you want to taste them all! There are pictures along the name of the food for an easy choice. Food are well cooked and beautifully presented. Very tasty. Staff are very... More

This restaurant was recommended by some friends and seems to be quite trendy! We had to book at 5:30 to get a table….The atmosphere is nice, it is not a luxury restaurant, but tables are large enough and reasonably comfortable. The menu offers a long list of traditional chinese dishes. I found the quality excellent and they are really generous... More

They have 2 restaurants in Shanghai that I tried, on Gaoyou Rd and on Yan'an Dong Rd, next to the Bund (with a beautiful roof top terrace as a bar). They are specialized in Yunnan province cuisine, with Thai and Burma influence. This makes different and quite original flavors that differs from classic Chinese cuisine. Very delicate cuisine, filled with... More

The food tasted good, but this was not the Chinese restaurant we were hoping for. We went on the advice of a person working at our hotel and should have turned around when we saw almost no Chinese people inside, but we stayed because she had told us she liked the restaurant and because of the overwhelmingly positive trip advisor...

When first venturing into Shanghai this is one stop on most travelers itinerary. And I get it, its a cool restaurant, with decent food, and good service. But after you have been here a while it quickly looses its sheen. Believe me there are many better restaurants around town, with tastier food at more reasonable prices. And when eating out... More
