This is a very nice Yunnan cuisine restaurant located only 5-10 minutes walk from my hotel on the Bund - the Lost Heaven is a gem for locals and tourists. Well decorated restaurant, the menu is simple but every dishes we ordered are delucious and the service is just great. It's quite a famous restaurant, I believe as it's crowded... More

With a certain twist of culture, reaching the regions near to Nepal, this restaurant is particular and definitely a joy in terms of ambiance and food. Recommend the experience!

Lovely interior for this nice place. This big restaurant serves nice food, a bit of a fusion kitchen with very tasty food. To my personal taste the lights are a bit too dimmed which makes it difficult to see where youi really are. The result is that you can find people using the light on their phone to be able... More

While on holiday in China, on Wednesday 11th January we were taken to The Lost Heaven for dinner as it was our last evening in Shanghi. The setting is beautiful, the food is wonderful, and beautiful presented. The prices are on the higher side and the wine is pricey but as a special treat it was amazing.

I was surprised, given the number of great reviews and reputation, that it was so easy to get a reservation. When I arrived I discovered the reason: It is huge and filled with tour groups and party goers. Very noisy. Cannot see the reason why it is so dark, but that's not the reason I wouldn't return. It was the... More

Yunanese food is really a must for Chinese food lovers. Lost Heaven has a very good environment and the food is really good. Be careful, it can be a bit over price too. But overall it is very worth it

Managed to get a dinner reservation in this very popular restaurant (weekday!). Walking into the bar area, it feels like walking into a boudoir. Dark furniture and sparse lighting with red being the main color. We loved it! Our table was in the upstairs dining room again very sparse lighting with some diners may think was too sparse. We sampled... More

Lost Heaven features Yunan cuisine, done in a very modern setting but with all the traditional Yunan flavours preserved. Best to reserve a table before you head there! It can get crowded even on weekday evenings.

We arrived early and sat downstairs in a rather peculiar, yet lovely setting and enjoyed a few of the wide range of cocktails that they offer. Once taken upstairs we ordered plenty of dishes to share between 5 (which I definitely suggest), and were pleasantly surprised as to the quantity and quality that we received! I'm hearing that despite offering... More

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.
