It is the last time we ever set foot in this joke of a pizza joint. They use only trainees which they probably don't pay. And MANAGER LEI MA - remember the name - let us kids starve and cry for over one hour - kids from 3 to 6 years old - until confessing they did not have the... More

My family has been a loyal customer of Pizza Express for years simply because food tastes good, price is ok and kids are welcomed. There is a nice kids menu and free meal for their birthday (kids club member). We do like Surpass Court restaurant better than others because it is in calm French concession and it has a beautiful...

Just got back from the Surpass Court Pizza Marzano venue and had a great dinner. To begin, I must admit to already being something of a Pizza Marzano fan from their original location in the Portman. The new Yongjia Lu location is very convenient for me so I thought I would pop in to see how it stacked up to... More

I am normally a big fan of this branch, but the latest manager, 2014/1/6 late afternoon, is nothing short of terrible. She was abrupt, unfriendly, and unhelpful. We are a party of 40 and she managed to display less patience than us (?!?) The waiters smiled more than her. She has no sense of service or organisation. She has completely... More

Located not far from my airbnb apartment, i stopped in for pizza. Tasty, relatively crispy crust. Excellent service. My server could tell how hot I was (the day was 100 degrees F) and suggested the iced tea with free refills. The rest f the menu looked good too.I'd return again.

We came here for lunch one afternoon with a party of 6 and sat outside on their patio area. The restaurant was very clean and modern. Our server was attentive and made great recommendations. There is something on the menu for everyone especially if you are looking for something familiar. We ordered the trio bruschetta appetizer, salads and a mixture... More

Rare restaurant in Shanghai, the starter actually came before the main! The rosemary bread is fantastic, top of my list. The pizza base is authentic and crispy. Attentive service. Bonus point, service with a smile. Okay, their dessert is not the forte, but you go to this place for pizza, right?

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.
