A really good Thai experience. The tom yum and papaya salad are great! The staff is friendly and diligent. Also, the interior is lovely, a great place for a date or a quiet meal. Not the cheapest place, but worth the price.

Change of menu is shocking when they were regularly voted best Thai food in Shanghai, why would anyone change... Is this location different than the others I don't know but was really disappointing....Wish I could get back to the old menu. NEVER AGAIN FEEL CHEATED

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,
