Great place to hang out for drinks and good burgers. Very popular with expats and the decor is warm and inviting. Been a few times and it's consistent.

This is a fairly small bar that stocks loads of Australian beers. It's a good place to hang out and have a drink with friends before visiting the nearby livehouse.

The food here is awesome. The ribs (half price on Mondays) are the best I've had. I've never seen ribs as big as they serve up here. Absolutely huge. I like the range of beer - both draft and bottled - but the cocktails are really well made and full size. The martini glasses are extra big and all the... More

Australian food - nicely prepared and flavorful. They seemed to be understaffed to serve our group of 12 in a timely manner, at least the food did not arrive at the same time (both appetizers and main courses). They did not have all wines on the menu. In general, the experience is pleasant. Some visitors may object the bar area... More

My husband's office is just opposite the restaurant, he almost goes everyday for lunch. He likes food there, somehow I was influenced to go as well. He is right, food and its value is really good!

Been invited by supplier to this restaurant, in total we were 11 pax. The food was nice but the service was terrible. There was no moment that we were all eating (starter, main course and dessert) on the same time. The food was not served on the same time. The first wine chosen from the wine list was not available,... More

We live in Shanghai and enjoy visiting Kakadu. Great drinks deal in the Happy Hour and good food. We went as a group of 6 and had some pre-dinner drinks, as always good value and a nice atmosphere. Menu is great, food is good value, we ordered the scallops, mussels and oysters for appetisers with main courses of a rack... More

We have been visiting Kakadu with colleagues who teach at a university in Shanghai for years and it has become our second home. A very friendly staff, personal atmosphere and good cocktails for a fair price. The Long Iland Iced Tea ist the best I have had between Shanghaii and Hamburg. Had dinner several times, loads of food, very nice... More

Overall the food was average, only two of us eating so didn't order loads (fish and chips - beer battered Australian red snapper, lamb salad and calamari). The snapper was good, though the beer batter needs some improvement. The calamari was slightly disappointing, as the batter was not crisp at all - slightly soggy to be honest (and left most... More

I dined here one lunchtime with a group of colleagues. The menu selection is very good - and if you are hankering for a taste of home (Australia) then the creative dishes using uniquely australian spices, seafood and game are worthy of a look in. We found the wait staff attentive and polite and the service very good. That said... More

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighbourhood Profile
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, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
