Also called "Coconut Paradise", the restaurant is easy to find, 1 block south and 1 block east of Jiang An Temple. It's a bit dark inside with red lamps and ambient lighting that provide a very relaxing and comfy environment. The food was outstanding and the devise was too. The prices are inline with Shanghai's mid-range restaurant scene, though I... More

Some years ago the Chain Restaurant "Simply Thai" in the Hongmei Road was as alternative also competitive, but their level went down a bit, so YeXiang TianTian - or Coconut Paradise is nowadays number one in Shanghai, form the atmosphere and service, as well...

Coconut Paradise is one of the best places to sit outside when weather allows. You have to take precautions for the musquitos but besides that, I love to sit here as the garden is quiet. Food is good and staff friendly. Only disadvantage is they often serve the rice very later after you have had all the dishes so you... More

I love Thai food, especially in Thailand :) This place has a good selection of best Thai dishes and you can't be wrong with any choice you make. I was there many times with friends and we tasted everything. One thing that I would always have is fried rice with pineapple and seafood. It's on the sweet side and it... More

Pretty romantic garden where to eat, I went few times with friends. Cozy place, great food and great french wine. I have had unforgettable dinners there! Even because the location is pretty good considering you are in the French Concession!..and you have a great beer bar right next to it where to head up after dinner ;)

Coconut paradise is set on a busy street in The FC but it has clever landscaping that cuts out all the chaos outside! The food was delicious, a large menu. But Lost Heaven (same owner's)is still my favourite

I visited Coconut Paradise with friends in early May. We sat outside in a lovely garden setting. The menu was varied and the service attentive. The atmosphere was remarkably Thai for a restaurant on a very ordinary road in Shanghai. The food was good and pricing was good value. A real pleasure!

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.
