We were on our 3rd visit back and everytime it's the food that takes me back. The issue is when you are a big group it's very noisy so advise a smaller group. The foods great lots of different flavours and great when people fancy tasting different options. But it never dissapoints me as the food is so wonderful.

I loved this restaurant. There is a wide range of dishes to suit every taste and the prices are not crazy given the quality. My noodle dish was 68 rmb and we had a curry for 98rmb - standard for the Bund. Wine was very reasonable with a Pinot Noir 290 rmb which is a lot less than other places.... More

Well worth a visit! If the weather permits have a drink upstairs on the roof terrace ! Great food, they'll also split your bill for large groups too!

I loved this place and will take all future visitors here. It's such a great way to taste lots of sichuan cuisine if you aren't really sure what to get because everything here is extremely well made.

Not a place you are going to go to every month, but when you have a special occasion, guests, business context, taking them to this place is pretty cool. The food of Yunnan has somehow been modernized with nice cocktails to go with it (and a little fusion feeling) so that you can have a cool evening out at this... More

Lost Heaven really does its name justice. With its mysterious, temple-like atmosphere you feel like in another world. The restaurant offers a great variety of dishes and it's fun to order many different ones in a group of friends and try different flavours. Even though the prices for the dishes are not that pricey (from about 50 RMB per dish)... More

Loved the food, quite a posh place for Yunan food. Was slightly dark, loved the terrace and the cocktails. Also compatible with parents you want to show around Shanghai

A group of work colleagues ate here (The Bund location) several times in January 2017 and loved it every time! They have a tremendous selection of food and covers everything from meat lovers to vegetarians (of which we had both). Service is good and prices are reasonable for the amount of food you get. They have some interesting drink selections... More

Lost heaven used to be a very popular restaurant for foreigners and visitors in shanghai. However it has not managed to keep its charm and taste.

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.
