Vedas - good food in an interesting location. Make reservations. Take the elevator, not the stairs down the side alley. My family decided to look for some Indian cuisine and we chose Vedas in Puxi(old French Concession). We found the building easy enough but followed one sign that led us and two locals down a side alley and up the... More

We enjoyed a lot Vedas Indian Restaurant for the tasty food and the nice Indian furniture. The food was very good, the dishes were generous and we paid a fare bill. The staff is very kind and they can speak a perfect English. We are terribly satisfied with Vedas and we warmly suggest everyone to go to.

We went there for Diwali dinner as there is very limited places in Shanghai where you can find Indian food. We ordered the tandoori chicken and it was cooked perfectly. The naans were well done. But the vegetables and meat dishes need more work. The masala that was created was still pretty raw. I could taste the raw uncooked onions.... More

Literally travelled all around Shanghai looking for a tasty inexpensive Indian place to eat for my 6 person family. We were fortunate to stumble upon here shortly after having a long tourist sightseeing day. Kids were starving and we were given a free snack appetizer to eat by the waiter when he noticed how hungry the kids were! Elegant decor,... More

This place is truly amazing. Went there twice in a span of 4 days during my recent visit to Shanghai for business. Was accompanied by my colleagues from India, Germany, China & Vietnam and each one of them cherished the food. The owner himself was continuously involved right from the time we entered to taking down our order & serving... More

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.
