“The most authentic Xinjiang Restaurant in Shanghai”
Reviewed November 1, 2011

This place has been one of my favorite restaurants in Shanghai for years. I visited it in September and was impressed again. In fact, over the years I have invited numerous friends to try their authentic Xinjiang food. Every one of them has agreed the place is excellent.

Pamir Restaurant is a hole-in-a-wall. It's easy to pass by, but I recommend it for anyone staying in downtown Puxi. The company is owned and operated by a man from Xinjiang who has been residing in Shanghai for more than a decade. His staff is from Xinjiang. Unlike the ubiquitous Lanzhou Noodle restaurants, his customers are, for the most part, from Xinjiang. That, to me, means the food must be good. And it is. It's authentic and cheap.

I have tried many of the menu items and have always been satisfied with the taste. For a first visit, though, I recommend trying the Polo (rice and mutton), naan bread, chaomian pianr, and pomegranate juice.

The wait staff sometimes needs reminders to keep the food coming, but it's not anything different from a restaurant of similar size.
