This restaurant is located in the French Concession area and has wonderful Szechuan dishes. From green beans, cucumbers and other vegetable dishes to stir fried beef, pork, and crispy fish, the dishes are flavorful and nicely done.

The restaurant was spacious with a really nice atmosphere. The food was spicy but bearable for people used to this kind of dishes. The spicy tofu with prawns was delicious! Slightly pricier than the usual Chinese restaurant but worth the money.

Unfortunately we were only two, so we couldn't order too much. The dishes we had were delicious. Service was quick and cheerful. I recommend anyone staying at 12@hengshan going to Pin Chuan as it's about a five minute walk and very delicious.

Wonderful spicy Szechuan food at very affordable prices in a villa in the French Concession close to Hengshan Lu. Service is brisk and professional and the selection and the quality of the dishes excellent. Great for lunch or dinner.

Nice Sichuan restaurant in an colonial building in the former French concession. The food is mostly authentic Sichuan food (I.e. very spicy) like mapo tofu and water boiled beef. One of their signature dishes and not to be missed is the beef cooked in hot...More

Even though smoking has been banned in Shanghai restaurants, it just isn't enforced in this place. Plus, the service is beyond horrible. We, (and I was with local Chinese speaking people), sat in this restaurant for over 30 minutes without a server coming over to...More

This place is offering very good food that make us remember that Sichuan also is a cuisine in China. Shanghai has many nice restaurants with good food, but there is something special with the spicy Sichuan food. Pin Chuan serves it in a friendly tone...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,
