Not so easy to find.It's directly at the street corner in a kind of hidden entrance. Great interior, very trendy place. Open kitchen, good service. The fish is fresh. Loved the sashimi. Pricey but definitely worth it.

We felt like Japanese and I didn't want to go to far. Did a quick search on trip advisor and found Shintori. At first we walked straight past the entry but then doubled back and noticed it. You walk down a bamboo lined path that leads to the entry. The interior is quite spectacular. We were seated upstairs with a... More

Located in an old theater, this modern restaurant hosts some of the tastiest dishes from Japan. Fresh ingredients and fast service makes sure this is a visit to remember. However, the open area also makes this a somewhat noisy restaurant.

This is more of a theatre than a restaurant! The main part of the seating is on a gallery above the open kitchen so you can see everything being prepared. It is a bit overpriced, but the starters are generously sized - we enjoyed the wasabi chicken salad and an amazing squid salad which wasn't really a salad at all.... More

A very good Japanese option in downtown puxi, the kitchen seems super clean and you could watch everything clearly, with no doubt their sushi is one of the best and one of the most expensive in town, but recommend to ones who likes a real good sushi

The janpanese style restaurant offers an open kitchen. you can sit on the kitchen level or one fly of stairs up. you overlook the open kitchen. Food is pricy but very good. Good mix between cold and hot platters. Try the Sushi ... extremely good !

Behind an unmarked entrance, a path leads to a door. Behind the door is an amazing Japanese restaurant called Shintori. It was probably one of the best Japanese food experiences I've had in Shanghai. Unfortunately, as there were 7 of us, they could only offer us a private room, which I'm not a fan of - I like to enjoy... More

If you're looking for a super modern clean esthetic this is your place. The Keiseki meal was superb, it does change seasonly. Food is a bit pricey but once you're inside you understand why. This place is just great. The fish is fresh and the saki menu is phenomenal.

a great place for delicious japanese food. You can easily miss it, as there is no sign on the street, and at night it is a bit uneasy to find. the sushimi are wonderful, presentation perfect and so so fresh... loved the duck rolls. on the other hand I was not impressed with the beef rolls... the decoration is very...

Better the "People" restaurant. This one is always stylish but with less flavour and ambient. Food is a mix of asian and western, with an original research.

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.
