We came across this restaurant without looking through TA as it was getting late and most restaurants are closed. The food was unexpectedly good! We have sliced dish spicy soup (must try) , chicken in hotpot (another must try), salted egg tofu (very soft and light in taste), soya sauce fried rice (very delicious) and fatty beef slices in sauce(similar...

We have been really surprised by this restaurant: First thing when we arrived there (5th or 6th floor of the Zhongshan mall) was a Chinese guy yelling at us: This is the best restaurant in the whole mall! Enjoy! And it really seemed to be a guest. So the restaurant interior was really nice, a little bit dark, but fancy.... More

After a delightfull first visit some time ago, we went back to try it again. This time only to be disappointed. The quality went down and many of our favorite dishes were switched out for safer options. Too bad!

I grew up eating "Sichuan" food in Toronto. Now that I've had more authentic Sichaun I can definitely say there's nothing like it back home. The amount of heat in the dishes we ordered was unexpected but extremely palatable. I would definitely come back if I come back to Shanghai even though my sinuses will thank me for going back...

Enjoyed dinner at this restaurant in Shanghai. It features dishes from the Sichuan area of China, which is known for its use of chili and other spices in its dishes. Every dish, both cold entrees and the hot entrees were delectable, well-presented and portion sizes were larger than I expected!

This is one of a chain of restaurants. The one we have gone to in the past on Huaihai Rd has closed which caused us to panic when we returned to Shanghai this year. Fortunately this branch is also pretty convenient for us and fully equal to the Huaihai one. The reviews on the Huaihai branch are applicable here as... More

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
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 residents but displays a more commercial character. 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 quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
