The area
Neighborhood: 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.

Waste of time.

The gardens were closed to restaurant patrons on the beautiful sunny day that we visited.

The restaurant might as well have been closed when we ate there: it took 15 minutes to get service, 15 minutes to get our first greasy dish of braised bran and just as we were ready to leave, the braised pork came, with the wrong side dish. The waiter seemed like he was purposefully serving everybody else before.

We left here hungry, never to return.

Closed to enter. Superficial look from outside not worth the effort unless you're nearby at the propaganda musuem.

Lilac, and other plants are fostered here! Very strong aroma coming from the garden can cure someone with asthma. Visited Nov 2012.
