We were amazed at how hard it was to find good vegetarian food in China - so when we read about this restaurant we knew we had to check it out. It was hard to find as it's not really on the street that its advertised as being on - its actually down an alley across from a hotel entrance. The staff don't speak much english at all but the menu has pictures and pretty good english translations.
We ordered the spareribs, which are absolutely amazing - kung-pal chicken which was good, green beans, noodles and a really good hot & sour soup that was made with coconut milk, which was absolutely amazing!
Prices are pretty good - expensive by Shanghai standards but worth it.
Oh and remember that there is no alcohol for some reason - so prepare for that. Lots of other choices though - highly recommended!!!

After a few days in Shanghai we decided to try this place as two in our party are vegetarian and having a hard time finding food elsewhere. It was a bit hard to find and multiple taxi drivers didn't not want to go or have any idea where it was. We finally had our hotel call a taxi which worked fine. It's down a side alley off the Main Street. It is definitely an up scale place and expect prices to be a tad higher than the surrounding area but still not insane for western standards. Our meal for three cost about $50 and they gave us a tea cup because we left a $5 tip. The food itself was really good and portions were on the smaller size but everyone left full. The highlights of the meal were the fresh matsutake mushrooms in basil sauce and the dumpling soup. Service was pretty good and if we were staying longer we would definitely go back!

We just happened to luck out on this place during my recent visit to Shanghai. The food is phenomenal and the service was even better. They eagerly explained every dish and also gave us a cute tea cup as a present when we were leaving. Every dish was not only tasty but also presented like a Michelin rated restaurant. Will come back any day.

By recommendation of a friend, we selected this vegetarian restaurant during the hot summer afternoon. Please do not be put off by the shady entrance by the road. Services was prompt and sincere, food were delicious! Will definitely come back should the opportunity arises.
