We visited last night because I love Japanese food - the partner is so so about it. Everything was just perfect. The otoro just melted in your mouth, the soup was amazing. The only fish that probably wasn't as good on the day was the...More

Small but very cozy Japanese restaurant. Beautiful design that reflects the culture of Japanese restaurants. Excellent service. Very fresh fish and seafood. Amazing Japanese food. At your choice - sake, beer, Chinese wine, or a small selection of western wines.

I have been here numerous times for business and pleasure and the quality and variety is 2nd to none. For a business dinner I recommend a private room and their set menu which goes beyond the sushi focused menu you get at the Sushi bar....More

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
