4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were a large group that included Shanghai locals who frequent this restaurant often....the proof is in the clientele I guess? As such, the food was ordered for us and it did not disappoint! We were also there with 5 Aussie children, who ate everything we ordered. It was delicious! It is very busy and loud but has a fabulous... More

Delicious food, lots of vegetarian options. Shrimp was amazing. All served family-style. Great place to take visitors to Shanghai to get a taste of everything. Make a reservation.

Lost heaven is one of my favourite restaurants. They make foreigner friendly Chinese dishes. After you have enjoyed the dinner then you can enjoy a drink at the roof top bar with an amazing view.

This is amazing food. I'm told there are Thai influences with the food. The food we had wasn't overly spicy, but I understand some items might be. Very popular and busy. I'm told the original one near the bund is the best, though there are others now that are also good. Chop sticks provided, but forks available. Pictures on the... More

This restaurant is always a highlight when we visit Shanghai. Most associates have been to the "spinning table" restaurants and they're leery of another "Chinese restaurant". This is so fun for our teams to visit and experience the energy and enthusiastic crew here. Such fun and the food is great!

We had a group of 7 people so we traditional family style by order one dish each and passing it around, best way to go in a larger group. The food was excellent couldn't go wrong with anything. The only thing is more than likely your going to order 1.5-2 dishes per person at the end of the day. If... More

Nice place, really good food from the region of Yunnan. Close to the bond so you then can walk to get great pictures or go to a nearby bar with the view of the bond.

Place is separated in restaurant and bar. The rooftop bar is really nice. Cocktails are good. Restaurant is also good. Good food, good choices... Not cheap..

The atmosphere is great for a small gathering with friends. It is a little noisy but my friends are quite loud too so we didn't mind. Food is good, more of a Westernized rendition of Yunnan food. Definitely try the scallion chicken and grilled pork. This will be my go to choice if I have friends visiting!

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.
