Excellent Shanghainese food with very reasonable price! The restaurant is not very close to the train station though, but the value of the food totally worth the effort.

Actually it was my driver who was a Shanghai native who recommended this restaurant since few years ago. Ever since then, whenever I came here, I always visited this restaurant first. I recommend Shengjianbao and shanghai vegetables as one of my top list. For tea, try the Xihu tea.

I visited this restaurant many times years ago. But even until now, if I were to recommend any restaurant in Shanghai, this will definitely be in the list! The food is actually relatively cheap, considering that it is by now a well known restaurant in Shanghai, operated for many years already and has multiple awards. (I didn't read it in... More

Big, bright (maybe over-bright, if you're looking for 'romantic') proper Restaurant. Amazing array of live fish & seafood in tanks for the chef to select from. plent of 'wierd & wonderful' if that's your thing - I ventured no further than Eel & River Prawns. But photographic menu allow 'safer' selection as well.

The sign in the front said "Polo". It looks like a family restaurant which gives it somewhat authentic atmosphere. Its actually pretty big inside. Most of the dishes were nice, some were too sweet. I liked the fried noodles the most.

Was recommended this place by our accommodation. It's quite large and was full of people on a Sunday night. We ordered some lemon chicken, which was like a sliced schnitzel accompanied by a very lemony sauce. Also the pot stickers, not the best ones I've had in Shanghai and some vegetables and rice. All in all it was disappointing for... More

Its only 2 blocks from Jing'an Temple, and have the sign "POLO" in the building. Me and my friend try it twice, on the weekend (which is very crowded) and on Monday. You can ask the waiter what the best choice in the menu. We usually choose pork knuckle, duck in oyster, fried dumpling. Most of their food is have... More

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.
