Different experience in Shanghai

I've been to Xibo twice so far and always loved the food. It presents food from North-West China with a strong influence from Central Asia. So there's a lot of lamb on the menu! The top dish for me is the grilled lamp chops which come with a dry rub and sweet sauce for dipping. The lamb is... read more

I lived in Shanghai for 3 years, and didn't know about this place until August last year. I had a dinner there. We were 10 girlfriends. The service was fast and professional. The food was really delicious. The options are great even if you are vegetarian. I let my Chinese friends order, and we shared like all Chinese would do.... More

If Shanghai isn't exotic enough, then eat at Xibo and experience a far Western region of Chinese cuisine known for Muslim dishes centered on lamb, cumin, and fantastic flatbreads. Everything is delicious and plates are meant for sharing.

Xibo is one of my favorite Chinese restaurants in Shanghai. Their food is definitely influenced by Middle Eastern cuisine while retaining the typical flavors of Chinese cooking. The BBQ meat is delicious with the lamb being the star of the show. Restaurant decor is very tasteful and they also have a beautiful outdoor terrace.

The Xibe (or Xibo) people are Manchurian descendants who made it to the far reaches of Xinjiang. This restaurant serves Xibo and Xinjiang cuisine and the results are fabulous. The food is delightful. Probably the best meat I have eaten in Asia in years. The menu has some interesting items such as fried bread and pumpkin and meat dumplings. The... More

I'd never tried north western Chinese food & it was a pleasant surprise. Had a good mix of dishes and a really good bottle of sparkling Argentinian wine. Nice roof terrace on Changshu lu. Would recommend ... Especially if you like charcoal grilled meat.

I'm not a big fan of a traditional spicy Chinese food but I lo-o-ove xinjian food! I can eat it every day. I went there with a big group of friends because somebody recommended this place and we were pleasantly surprised. Restaurant looks very cool, you can easily come in a group of 20 and they will form a big... More

Came hear with my girlfriend after the restaurant was recommended by a couple of friends who live in Shanghai. We arrived around 9.30pm on a Monday without a reservation and were seated straight away. It was fairly busy however must be a bit of a western favourite as it was nearly all expats. There was lots to choose from on... More

Best Xinjiang food I had in Shanghai. I'm in love with that restaurant. The place in itself is really nice and the waiters are quick. It's a bit expensive, around 100RMB per person, but it is totally worth it.

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.
