Nice environment, especially the outdoor restaurant. Quite full, better reserve table in advance. Food is average. Don't expect it's very authentic. But for business is not bad if your clients are foreigners.

The garden was just lovely with the tall bamboo trees around and the red lights on. You might even think you are in South East Asia, except that the night was pleasant and exceedingly hot like SE Asia at this time of the year. Food was delicious.

There is an incredible lack in the menu, the essential Thai dessert: Sticky Rice with Mango. Appart from that, place is nice and you can even have your diner in a garden (don't forget to take your mosquitos repellent spray with you!)

The quality-price rate is just unbeatable. Dishes from 40 to 120 Rmb on a wide range of fruit salads, crab and veggies aperitizers and meat-based mains. Normally the spicy sauces are served apart, so it´s up to each one (I have a delicate stomach, and it´s not easy to find a Thai place not affecting diggestion at night) Make sure... More

I love this restaurant of the French Concession. It is more known as Coconut Paradise. I have been here many times and both indoor and in the garden the environment is very pleasant. If you sit in the garden in the summer, mosquitos can be an issue. Bring the repellent along. They have it but didn't work. Food quality is... More

If we want to have a good Thai dinner, my wife and me always visit this Restaurant. The food is really good upper class Thai style. The Restaurant is also really nice decorated. So it's a good place to spent some hours together. There are a lot of foreigners there also. It seems that the most are no tourists, and... More

Beautiful ambiance, good food, friendly staff.. it is a renovated French-style villa with spacious enclosed garden. It is one of Shanghai's most popular Thai eateries. candle lit interior decorated with Buddhist artifacts make for an atmospheric setting..

I have been here many times already and always had a great experience. Besides the amazing dishes (Seafood Salad, Grilled Chicken wrapped in Leafs) the place is really worth a visit itself. Located inside a old colonial villa near Jinan Temple this is a unique experience. Wooden furnitures, wooden floor, cute garden outside - really beautiful! Keep in mind that... 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.
