My bible study fellowship group leader suggested that we go to this place for lunch after our morning bible study one Tue afternoon. The restaurant was doing some kind of lunch set promotion, which we could order soup of the day, and 1 main course. The soup of the day was either Chinese mushroom soup, or the creamy soup. As...

Their food menu has got a lot of variety and the quality is good too. People/patrons are friendly, the atmosphere is always good and it... More

I always go there for watching F1 racing , but also other sports events. Food is good and not to expensive, and nice draft beers. Friendly staff. A pool table where you participate if you want. On different days offers like Thursday 25 % off the steaks

Went there with friends after sports, service was average as it seems only some waiters can speak English but you can see they are trying. I spilled part of my drink after getting grazed by a hot dish served at our table; no harm done and I said nothing but the waiter took it upon himself to replace my drink... More

Since then, we've dropped in for catching a piece of the action of NFL, NBA, and NHL games throughout our stay with other enthusiastic sport fans here! Great atmosphere; oh so... More

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
