I think that says it all. Everything here costs more than it should, especially drinks which are nearly twice as expensive as elsewhere. Food was OK, not worth the premium. When we went in there was only one other table but we got squeezed in...More

Goga once again delivered. In a city where there is so much restaurant turnover and inconsistency, Goga stands head and shoulders above the others. The Tuna Tataki and Miso Cod have been the same outstanding taste and ingredient quality for the last 5 years I...More

We stumbled upon this tiny gem when we were walking down Dongping Rd looking for a place to eat. The food is West Coast Asian packed with flavor and nicely executed. The place may seem small, but it adds to the charm and makes it...More

If you don't mind a typical fine dining experience with A+ flavors, but very small portions and a large bill, then you will love this place. If you're like us, who live on a budget and like to leave satiated, then you will want to...More

My first impression of Goga from the outset right after stepping out from the taxi was a little skeptical. This little restaurant doesn't look like much at first (looks like a take-away kebab shop from the outside) but as soon as we stepped in, we...More

Small restaurant of about 12 seating so reservation is good idea. The chef really seems to care to make the experience nice. The personal touch and superior meal was worth the somewhat high prices.

We lived in Shanghai for four years, and Goga was a mainstay. A small, lovely place with an excellent menu and very good, personal service. We are from San Francisco, and this is pretty much the ONLY place in town that reminded us of home....More

Shanghai has a lot of nice restaurants, though it's often overpriced. This one however, is outstanding and unique in Shanghai. The food is super delicious but not super expensive. They serve kind of fusion of western and Asian cuisine with a twist. I went there...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,
