I can't remember that last time I went to a restaurant where the presentation made me physically uncomfortable. Presentation of every single dish at Kappa Yu was somehow grossly overdone or over-large, often ridiculously so. Almost every single dish came with some sort of string...More

We have visited this place once and it was an upleasant time. Had to wait almost 30 minutes to get table and the food selection is scarce specially sushi plates. Not reccomended at all.

The food at Kappo Yu is amazing! I was there for a birthday celebration, and we booked the tatami room. The restaurant is not very big; most seats are at the bar where you can see the chefs, and there are two small private tatami...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
