In search of some spicy Chinese food we found this place on TA. Arrived about 6pm on a Tuesday night and found the place relatively empty however by 7:30pm it was nearly full. We tried 6 dishes and let me say if you are not a chilli fan this is definitely not the place for you, each dish is brimming... More

Best value for money in town. Nice service. Not easy to find. It is a small door with stairs leading up, so watch out.

A famous name being around many years in Shanghai, their spicy Hunan dishes are delicious. If you love spicy food, this is the address to be added to your list.

We went here with a friend who lived in Shanghai and knew the tips and tricks. She did order all dishes and they were all succulent. We had 11 all and all and we loved them all. Great atmosphere. Super service. Try spare ribs, the crab, the fried veggies and for dessert fried banana balls caramelized. Yummy!

This is a great restaurant that's popular with locals an foreigners alike. We always visit when we're in Shanghai. The food is all very fresh, full of flavour and heat and the restaurant atmosphere is great. Don't go expecting 5 star cuisine with starched table cloths and snooty staff, but do go expecting great authentic food. When we first visited... More

Their signature dish is pork ribs. it is a good place to start warming up to/eating local chinese food. you also see a lot of locals eating there. its not expensive and they also have european beers to drain down that spicy chicken or pork ribs.

We go here each time we visit Shanghai and it is consistently delicious. The clientèle is a mixture of Chinese and foreigners so this isn't an authentic 'local' experience, but don't be put off by this! The food is much better than at many of the super pricy recommended (usually by hotels) tourist spots. The food is generally very hot/spicy,... More

Another Shanghai favourite. Quite spicey cooking but fresh and nice and with reasonable wine too. Simple decor with checked table cloths.

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.
