Came here with a supplier for dinner a couple nights ago and was very impressed with the dishes that Lost Heaven served us. Eggplant with tomato sauce and hot and sour shrimp were definite standouts. The place was PACKED with people - and others were getting turned away if they didn't have reservations, so be sure to reserve in advance!... More

If you are looking for the right combination of asian food (not chinese only), unique interier and good quality, you should visit Lost Heaven. Even though it's being a kind of touristic place for those who are looking for something exotic, you will be kindly impressed with the variety of all asian dishes. Frankly speaking, I am not a big...

The place looked dark and mystical at first glance with all the dark tones in the floors and walls,Mongolian-type sculptures and wall hangings. Went upstairs to see a good size of a crowd, thankfully we got seats right away though. We were a vegetarian group so we ordered the fried eggplant tomato dish and noodles reminiscent of South East Asian... More

Selection is fantastic, quality is fine. Nothing to write home about, I'd say I'll probably be here every now and again if I lived in Shanghai because of convenience and variety. Ordered some sushi rolls (ok), fried chicken (fine), rice (very good steamed rice), miso soup (rubbish), sausage (good), Yunnan bottled beer (fantastic), Warsteiner on draft (was brought beer water...

Had dinner with 9 people, both the food and service were excellent. The waiter had many tables but we never felt a lack of attention.

Enjoyed a lovely selection of dishes with lots of flavour. Very pleasant and helpful staff. The lighting is a bit dim which gives atmosphere, only a bit difficult to read menu.

since my first visit not much has changed. The restaurant is generally dark, except a few tables. You hardly see with WHOM and WHAT you eat and drink. The service is a bit sluggish but friendly. Food quality is good in general

Always interesting to experience places with lots of expats and international crowds, but when trying to order a menue, it seems complicated to understand. :) This is, however, part of the experience and the food is outstanding. Menues have photos of the meals which makes it easy to select, the service is prompt and friendly. Whether you are a large... More

Make sure you have a reservation. Place is full all the times. Food is good with vary choices on a menu. Service is good and attentive. Wine list is well done with price what would not break your wallet. Restaurant itself is situated in lovely area. Really nice place to have a lunch when you can see trees outside. Coming... More

Loved this place, we had one of our best meals of our trip in China here. The place specializes in Yunnan cuisine. Good, extensive menu (well translated into English), excellent food, good service. Highly recommended!

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighbourhood Profile
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 seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
