As 2 vegetarians, the restaurant accommodated our tastes well. We ordered steamed broccoli, spring onion noodles, and veggie spring rolls. Everything was delicious & fresh. The interior was updated & clean, and nearly all the waitresses spoke English. We will definitely be back!

Both westerners and Chinese people come here for dinner. The food is excellent. I would especially recommend the Kung pao chicken and the aubergines. Make sure to ask that the (fried) rice is served WITH the other dishes. Reasonably priced. Friendly staff who speak English

Noisy as allways, but I really love the chicken in lemon sauce and the very spicy beef sezuan style.

Zhongshan Park
The residential and commercial areas around the
beautiful grounds of Zhongshan Park have never been
considered particularly fashionable by a majority of
Shanghai’s foreign residents, but plenty of expats do
choose to live here. The park itself is a huge draw,
providing a pocket of serenity in the middle of the
metropolis. The area has its share of trendy shops
with wares that can’t be found elsewhere, delicious
