It might not be a great surprise for locals, but westerns love it. It´s just the kind of approach one would like to have to Chinese food when you arrive to China. I know this place for over seven years, and still looks very impressive, cool design and fun food. Visiting the labyrinth in the toilets is a must...

You start with an entrance with a challenge to open the gate...yes it was fun but once of our partners was quick... slide the hand through the gap in the rock and "sesame open" the gate opens. Even the path to the bathrooms was entertaining...I will not give that one away though ;) While the food was excellent and the service was good it was the entertainment factor that really stuck out :)

Explore around the restaurant, take the opportunity to find the special places.
Enjoy a beer in a footless glass, and eat a soup from a paperbowl kept warm with fire!

One may walk past it several times without realising that there's a restaurant tucked behing the tall metal sliding door. Oh yes, and the metal sliding door does not open until you find the secret trick! The restaurant consists of 3 stories and the first floor has a full bar.

The restaurant is rather dim, which I guess makes it perfect for a romantic meal. The cuisine is Chinese with a twist. Presentation of each dish is unique and interesting. My favourite was the Beef in a Jar - thinly sliced flavourful beef stir-fried with dried chilli and served in a jar. The dessert of rice wine with fruit cocktail is worth a try. The slight twang of rice wine coupled with the sweetness of the fruit cocktail is strangely refreshing. Don't worry - there is no alcohol content in it.

Definitely worth a visit to witness the vibrancy and creativity of restaurants in Shanghai.

The experience starts once you step onto the premises. It's like Ali ba ba opening the cave door! The door needs to be opened by putting your hand into the gap of a metal sculpture on the right side of the door. You will have to walk up a path and come to another where behind the hostess will hand you your table number and tell you what floor to proceed to. It's very dimly lit inside - Chic. Lighting frames the food that's to be served in the center of the table. Wait staff are attentive and friendly. Food is deliciously interesting - unlike the plain descriptions of the dishes. Dishes are presented like a work of art. Makes eating all the more enjoyable.
The fried chicken strips with fresh salad was yummy, lotus root with mango puree, hotpot chicken and the trio of rice! All exquisite. Taste as well as presentation.
The toilets were insane! Like a maze of mirrors...good sense of fun!
