Great experience. Casual setting, maybe little too crowded, but think it adds to the atmosphere. Good service. Food attained fast, maybe little too fast. But the most important is the food. Served in a casual way, but well thought. Good and interesting combinations. Unfortunately, dinner...More

Wonderfully created, tasty dishes, great atmosphere, friendly and welcoming hosts and staff. The tapas brunch menu is unique and not short of interesting options, though the 3 dish offer was very filling for one person! Not the cheapest spot in town, but still worth a...More

Nice place to stop for a dinner with friends. Menu choices are not huge but good in quality. Not taking reservations over phone which might be getting tricky getting a table at busy times.

We had a fabulous lunch here in the shady courtyard. The small tapas style dishes for two are original, delicious and beautifully presented. There is real skill in the apparently unusual flavour combinations that work really well, different textures and presentation is good. We particularly...More

We arrived early, 5:30 pm before 6:00 pm kitchen opening. Ten minutes before kitchen opening we asked if we might place our order and assured our waiter we were not in a hurry. Our waiter said ‘Want to order? OK.’ But then forgot to return....More

Great courtyard location for those warm summer nights. Interesting global fusion style tapas for sharing. Beautifully presented dishes with a high degree of technical complexity but thought the flavour punch was slightly missing on a couple of dishes e.g. the pig's head croquettes. Wine is...More

Super hip. Super mod. Super friendly. Seems this is where Shanghai's in-the-know people hang out. Conveniently connected to the uber-cool Design Republic, the Commune Social may have the hippest bar in Shanghai. Fabulous cocktails in a small upstairs bar with a crowd that turns over...More

Pleasant place for lunch/brunch; can't linger too long as the seating is not the most comfortable, although one must admit they're quite clever in using the space available. The food is OK - no bad dish, but also no great dish to scream about. A...More

The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple,
while the main artery of excitement and entertainment
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

I didn't visit in the evening, but at lunchtime it was very busy. Fortunately as I was by myself they were able to find a place for me easily. But with 8 of you it might be quite difficult. However, if you are all patient... More
