Really good food in a quite low key restaurant

Amazing food, and price efficient as well. Be sure not to miss the lamb racks ribs, with the classical Chinese seasoning. We ordered abou 8 dishes for 5 people which was fairly good. Also try the Dark Beer, goes well with the spicy food. ENJOY

we left some food and we asked them to pack it up for us. They asked us for ''coin'' as they said this service wasn't free. Of course, the bill was above 200rmb. I guess the coin was compensating the cost of the tupperware. Awful attitude from the management of a nice restaurant. Also the music reminder me of a... More

One of the best places in Shanghai for Xinjiang food. With an amazing menu, great ingredients and ambience, and located slightly off JingAn, it is a must place to eat when you are in Shanghai.

The food is good, quality ingredients, very flavorful. They've got an english menu with big pictures. Super nice staff. Saw a lot of local families here. Make a reservation to be safe. I don't know if it's truly 'excellent' but that's what I'm rating it - it's easy, tasty, and different - a hard combo to beat on a vacation.... More

Xibo is now a must when in Shanghai. I really like the spicy food especially chicken and lamb and the wine is ok which is not always the case here

Sometimes in Shanghai, it's hard to find food that is really different. Xibo's menu is a mix of North Chinese with Russian influences. We went here for my birthday. The staff were friendly, and the restaurant atmosphere was great. Try the cashew nuts with coconut, breads and the grilled meats. They also have a great wine menu and cocktails to... More

When we entered this restaurant, we didn't realize that they were close to closing for the lunch-day meal. However they seated us and proceeded to bring us some wonderful dishes. We tried the cucumber salad, the lamb ribs, the yogurt, the different kinds of breads. Would definitely return for another helping of this delicious Uighur cuisine.

Been here three times now but each time I've left feeling the same - that the food was average. So I'm not sure what all the hype is. We ordered lamb chop which the meat itself was very tasty however there was so much fat on the meat it was hard to eat. We also had the deboned chicken and... More

The dinner was great, but the dessert was amazing!! Their pastry chef is exceptional. I really enjoyed my evening and found the food delish and a great value. Massive dinner with drinks and dessert for under US$100 for two.

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.
