This was the first time we tried Xinjiang food and couldn't have found a better restaurant to do so. Mouth still waters thinking about the amazing lamb chops and stir-fried beef. Service was spot on and this made for a perfect evening out. For the amazing quality, the restaurant was not expensive and we would go back in a heartbeat.... More

If you haven't tried xinjiang food, you definitely have too, and this restaurant is a very nice one to try. If you like meat it is an easy pick. I went to this restaurant when I lived in Shanghai 2010 and have been back both 2015 and now most resent 2017 and never been disappointed. Can highly recommend.

The staff ist friendly, but they can not speak good english. The food is great, but some dishes where a little bit tasteless. The price is from okay to a little bit to high - depends on the dish. It is a good choice to eat but with some small negativ points. Reservation is recommended.

Xibo specializes in the food of China's northwest region of Xinjiang where tribes still roam on horseback and eat hearty meals. The Uighur are also from the region. Influenced by Muslim influence from Turkey and Iran the cuisine here tends to be heavily lamb based with dollops of mashed eggplants and roasted peppers for good measure. You will not be... More

If you like Xinjiang food Xibo is a great option and some of the staff speak English. Which makes it very easy and foreigner friendly. Food is great. Highly recommend it. Walking distance from the Shanghai Hilton.

Atmosphere is not bad and prices are just a little high, unfortunately the food is just too plain; Shanghai has more authentic north-western chinese restaurants that are not half as pretentious, where the lamb skewers really taste like lamb (I could not tell the difference between their beef and lamb -their chicken just tasted like tofu). And don't even mention... More

We went to this place as a Team Lunch, as it was suggested by our Chinese colleagues. It was definitely a good choice. They have good good variety of food including some Vegetarian options. The cuisine is basically from Northwest China & its a good place for casual Dining. Nice ambiance & helpful staff.

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.
