I stayed for a business lunch at LIN YI. The food was good, a nice place with many international guests. Service need to improve especially language skills. I think i will come back and check another time.

This is a really reliable Shanghaiese restaurant. The food is great, service not so good but ambience makes up for it. The eggs with caviar are special. Can be chilly with the ferocious aircon

The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple,
while the main artery of excitement and entertainment
is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French
Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign

Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and
trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing
Road, but areas off the busy street have the same
