Went to Xibo twice during my visit to Shanghai once with customers and once by myself. We very much enjoyed sitting outside on the terrace. Good spicy food and interesting wine list with good selections for Shanghai. Will be back!

Central location, warm atmosphere and friendly service make up for the fact that this may not be the best Uighur meal you can have, but it's still pretty good. The best dishes come in large portions (roast leg of lamb, 'big plate' chicken), so it would be better to come here in a large group. Xinjiang food is very rich... More

I recommended Xibo for a group dinner with my classmates in Shanghai and it did not disappoint. Several people said this was the highlight of their dining experience in China, and I have to agree with them. Great food at reasonable prices in an awesome setting. Understand up front that this is not traditional Chinese cuisine, and you're eating food... More

Had such yummy food here - the lamb chops are honestly some of the best lamb chops I've ever had! Really really great food, good service and very reasonably priced. Would recommend

Really a nice place to enjoy different Chinese food (Uygur region if I'm not mistaken). The skewers on the charcoal are fantastic, as well as many other dishes. The staff is really friendly and helpful. A small terrace to enjoy outdoor dinner at this time of the year (better do reservation for it before).

I'm from southwest china and love the food from there, but most of the restaurants serving Xinjiang or Xibei food are a bit shabby. Xibo combines authentic tasting food with great decor, comfortable environment where you can order western wine with your food, and pleasant presentation of the food. It's not one of those tourist-traps, it's simply Xibei food in... More

We were four and asked our hotel to make a reservation for us. I believe that otherwise, we would have still had a table, but not the table that we had. It was a very interesting view overlooking the interior of a residential area. The restaurant atmosphere was ideal with the view and a style that was contemporary and casual.... More

This is the best halal restaurant in Shanghai. even if you are not looking for a halal experience, then go there for the culinary experience, because the food is delicious. They also have the absolute best lamb chops I have ever tasted ! I had to order in more. The restaurant is very stylish, the staff service-minded and nice. I... More

Spring time is outdoor table seating. As usual the service is great. Our 16 months daughter get her baby chair and a regular chair for playing. Staff is nice, helpful, smiling and making a great atmosphere. Food is Xinjiang. A lot of lamb, but also meat, vegetables and potatoes. Our favorites are always a winner when bringing friends and family.... 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.
