Lost Heaven has always been a popular choice with tourists and the expat crowd in Shanghai. However the food is indeed delicious and the prices are reasonable as well. The atmosphere is really nice in the restaurant and the staff are always attentive.

This place is fun and the food is really good despite you can hardly see what is in the plates as it s quite dark inside! Each recipe is delicious and we do have rituals as Burmese lamb samboosa or braised eggplants with tomatoes. This...time we tasted chicken curry and braised bamboo with chicken too, they were amazing.The fruit platter at the end was Giant and the Yasmin tea helped to end a fantastic Dinner: also they do accept international credit card!More

As a shanghai resident I used to often go to this place, it has a great appeal for tourists for different reasons (location and the Yunnan food has been westernized so it's a hit for foreign visitors) due to the pandemic they are now mostly...empty, I wanted to support this place and I noticed they sold a new product so called "5 people menu" which consisted in a cheap bottle of wine, and one third of the usual portions which could probably feed 2 . Outright fraud, we complained to the manager who ackowledged they probably made a mistake and we were some sort of a "crash test" for this new menu. They proposed to give us the normal portions but then their kitchen found out most of the items were missing. A big joke. Won't go back again and I advise everyone to do so.More

Served a mix of locals and tourists. English was no problem. Definitely get a reservation if coming after 6 PM. We tried the spring rolls which were light and flaky with lots of vegies, the green beans with shrimp paste (also good) and the grilled...pork which was served slightly pink and very flavorful. The highlight was definitely the dessert of passion fruit mousse pie with short bread crust. I could have eaten the whole pie! We would definitely go back.More

We went into this restaurant off of the main drag in the Bund. The dining area is enormous with various areas, sections, and small and larger rooms. Service is efficient and friendly. Very customer service oriented. The food is Yunnan style with smatterings of other...peoples in the province.. We started with a eggplant with tofu cold dish; then a Dai Li Style Fried Boneless Chicken with garlic and preserved pearl onions (Jiao Tou); Huayao Dai Style Sauteed Beef Tenderloin with peppers, chopped amaranth with a fragrant willow leaf and then some green tea. The food was flavorful, delicious and tasty. The service was helpful, attentive, and friendly. People from all over the world including Chinese.More

I had dinner here with a colleague during my first night in Shanghai and I totally loved the set up, the atmosphere and the delicious food. The district of the restaurant is astonishing, just on the river. Would definitely go back next time I am...in Shanghai!More

After over a week in Chengdu, we were ready for something a bit different. Having dined at the other Lost Heaven on Gaoyou Road on a previous visit to Shanghai but, with our hotel on the Bund, we decided to try this closer restaurant. We...were not disappointed. The waiter advised us to the right amount to order (I wish every restaurant did this!), we found the food was just as delicious. We decided to dine here twice during our visit to Shanghai as the menu is quite extensive both for regular and vegetarian options.More

Jan 16h visit. Classy decor. Food and service was great for our group of four. Both vegetarian and non-vegetarian choices were great - burmese tea leaf salad, noodles, dai tribe chicken, stir fried beef. Wonderful flavors. Enjoyed signature drink - Thai Zeed. Great experience as...always.More

Decent Yunnan cuisine. Was at room temperature when it came to the table. Worth a try if you’re looking for different than your “typical” Chinese cuisine.
