My only complaint is that I didn’t get a discount for cleaning the plate. 😀 The Thom Ka Gai soup was one of the best I ever had (been to Thailand many times). The Panang Curry was delicious and spice too.

The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple,

is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French
Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign
residents but displays a more commercial character.
Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and
trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing
Road, but areas off the busy street have the same
