When I travel from the United States to Shanghai often, I always enjoy high-quality steaks -- I like the bone-in ribeye -- and delicious other foods together with a nice selection of wines and cocktails at Shanghai Slim's. You can custom order the size of several different steaks to make your meal just right. Located in Sinan Mansions, Shanghai Slim's... More

Classy place in the beautiful French Concession. Great bourbon options and a healthy bar selection. I had the 12 oz 14day aged rib-eye medium rare. It was slightly on the rare side but not enough for me to complain. It was fun finding this place because once you get to the 500 block of Fuxing Road, you sorta got to... More

In a country with such magnificent food as China, it's hard to stand out. This restaurant does! And for quality of food, ambiance and service as well. The only true aged, US meats I found in China. And the fresh, French oysters will make you think your in a sidewalk brasserie on the Left Bank!

It was nice weather so we decided to dine outside. We were seated by a very polite English speaking waitress. We were given two menus one drink one food. We both had great cocktails that were priced very competitive. We started with soup my friend with lobster and I had the tomato basil both were rich and creamy . We... More

Great restaurant for steak lovers, although other food is also available here. We had the 26 ounce 'Cowboy Steak' for two to share and it was delicious. Friendly staff and a good wine list too.

Took my wife here for her birthday on a friend's recommendation, this place doesn't disappoint. While a bit pricey (>1000RMB for two) it wasn't outrageous. We had a few aps, shared the 24oz ribeye and had a nice bottle of Pinot Noir. The ribeye wasn't cooked they way we liked it at first but they quickly rectified that. The steak... More

Went last night with friends. Drinks were good (an amazing Old Fashioned) and food was too. Steaks were to die for except my husband's which was clearly a bad cut full of tendons. What a pity when you pay 250 rmb for your piece of meat! This place is expensive and quality should be 100%, not 75%. Service is typical... More

Stumbled upon this cosy island of a restaurant in the French Concession section of Shanghai and it was a relief to find it since could not find very many places open during CNY 2015. Good ambiance, great decor .. rustic American and the manager was a sweetheart. Food was tasteful .. steaks and seafood, pricey but worth it. The manager... More

If you had visited Shanghai Xintiandi before, you might want to come to this place as the setup is more or less the same but lesser eateries and bars. This restaurant is serving good food but the service is bad! We had to call the servers a few times even though it was 2:45 pm for lunch. The food is... More

We found Shanghai Slims by mistake. The place we wanted to visit had moved and we ended up here. The food was great. There were four people in our party and everyone of raved about the food.

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.
