I have spent there the wonderful evening with friends. On the second floor. Really large, bit dark room, great service (English speaking), fantastic food. Wine could be better 😉 I plan to return there.

If you want to spend time at the buns after dinner, the lost heaven would be a good choice. This is not typical Yunnan restaurant but the taste is above average. I like the vegetable cake in particular. Also, the price is acceptable.

The flavors here were delicious, most from Yunnan province (near Thailand). We started with a superb cocktail called "Legendary". It is described in the menu as "great quality vodka blended with coconut, fresh lemon, and chili flavors--the rest is a secret recipe." We sampled a...More

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,
