If you are Indian missing home food - you will love this. If you are non-Indian, looking for Indian food - you will probably love this even more! The restaurant itself is very non-pretentious. But the food, the host, and the service is quite nice....More

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
