“Nice Location, good food but too noisy”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

I have been here few times in the past 6 months, but if it would not be so noisy, maybe I would go back more often. The food is really nice, and if you like spicy the menu got plenty options. The service is fast but not every service staff speaks english.
Nice location for a walk on the Bund after dinner, but it is always busy and it is really noisy.
Overall a good dining venue in Shanghai.

“Nice location, nice atmosphere, but foreigner trap and average food”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

If you're looking for Chinese food, this is not the place to go. The food was okay to fine, but there are other places to go while in Shanghai. The location is great, as it is by the Bund. The service was also good. However, the food and its selection were average, as this is a place for either tourists or ex-pats living in Shanghai. (The majority of the restaurant crowd are ex-pats). I can see this being a fun place with friends who want to go out on the Bund later in the evening, but if you want great food, I would recommend other places before this restaurant.

“Nice atmosphere, good food, great for entertaining but not for business discussion!”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

We always came with friends and business guests from out of town to Lost Heaven. Good standard of service and the food never disappointed us. Guests were always impressed with the deco and enjoyed non- typical Chinese food from Yunnan. Just be prepared that the restaurant is a bit noisy so not good for business discussion.

“Superb food and intimate ambience.”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

My boyfriend and I ate here 2 days ago we made reservations, as the first time we tried to dine here they were fully booked. We heard that Lost Heaven was renowned for great Yunnan and so we thought it would be a great experience. They did not fail, the food was divine, the pork wrap with lettuce was succulent, the grilled pork was tender and the beef curry was the icing on the cake. would definitely recommend! a little pricy but worth the money, will definitely be returning!

“Excellent food and service!”
Reviewed April 2, 2014 via mobile

We chose this for our last night in China. What a treat! We went up to the bar to wait for our table, loved the atmosphere and great cocktails.
Our dinner was a mix of original flavours, good service and great atmosphere.
Definitively worth visiting this place, an easy walk from the Bund. Loved our evening out here,
