Food is very good. Service is a bit slow, though not exceedingly so given the high volume of customers they serve. Did not require a reservation to get immediate seating at dinner time on a weeknight. Worth a go if you are in the area.

DSD remains on the top spot of Shanghai Hunan restaurants. Food standards remain high, but prices sure did go up a lot. Common theme in Shanghai though. The main staff remain the same since decades which ensures the standard.

Went here recently for a supper. Of note, this restaurant is up a narrow stairway on the 2nd floor on Maoming road, just north of Changle. Very casual environment greets the diner on arrival.kind of looks like a Baltimore Crab Shack restaurant. We had no...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
