The first thing you must try are the cocktails. They are to die for!
The food is sensational and you will not be disappointed. Service is attentive and friendly and the room is not do noisy you cannot have a good dinner conversation. Highly recommended.

Missing Mexican food -- go to Maya. The cocktails are great, the food is fantastic and the atmosphere is wonderful. Ask for a non-smoking table to really enjoy the meal. Maya is tucked back and can be hard to find but it is worth the effort. Of the various "mexican" choices, this is the best.

This was a regular haunt of mine when I lived in Shanghai but my last visit was a touch disappointing. The management replied with an apology (always a good sign) so I made a point of going back during my last trip to Shanghai and the meal was fantastic as was the service. If you are looking for Mexican food with a twist this is the place to go in Shanghai!

We miss Mexican food the most while living in Shanghai. This nearly hits the spot. Tacos are good, nice happy-hour but the coconut flan is worth going for!

I honestly wish I would find one extraordinary place to eat in shanghai. Went there for brunch. Got there at 10:50 but they open at 11 so we were told to wait outside.The food was ok. The pictures of the food in one of the magazines looked much better than the actual food.. Do not recommend the churros.
