I came with a large group of school classmates, and I must say that I wasn't impressed at all. Expect your average tourist price (100 RMB, give or take) and mediocre Mexican style food. I wouldn't say that it's close to authentic, even for China....More

My daughter and I went here yesterday, and it was exceptional. Now I grew up 12 miles from the Mexican border in California. It is not Baja Mexican food (which is my favorite) but there are regional types of Mexican food. This food is legit...More

Amazing food and drinks specially the tequilla list. The salad bar is unique but very good too. It's usually bustling with foreigners. But I've heard it's closed down recently.

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
