This is a large restaurant that gets crowded fast. It is nicely decorated. The food was very good, and service was fast but not rushed. The menu is huge, as are the portions. Nice location across from the Bund.

Fantastic food, briliant cocktails and perfect environment. Dimmed lights. The toilets are pretty cool too! Really pleased we stumbled across this restaurant.

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,
