Lost Heaven, the bund: we had been recommended this restaurant by a friend who is in Shanghai regularly. What a place, the atmosphere is wonderful, and it is obvious that you come here to eat well. What better than spring rolls when you come to China......excellent, they were definately the real thing! We also tried the roast pork and stir... More

Dear Advisors, before you post comments on Lost Heaven Gao You, BE SURE you have been to this adress and not to the LOST HEAVEN on THE BUND. Most of the bad comments happens to be for the restaurant on the Bund, but all posted on the restaurant of Gao You road. As an expat, I would never go to... More

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.
