Large restaurant serving up spicy hot goodness. A huge menu of options from seafood, pork, chicken and beef. Tofu is also an option. Good service and worth the visit.

I was here on a weekday and it was less crowded than I thought. The restaurant is pretty cozy with a dark interior and dim lighting. I ordered a glass noodle dish with shrimps which was very tasty. Also the lemon drop drink was good.

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
