Following a recommendation from a friend, we tried this place as we had never experienced Japanese cuisine other than sushi. Wow, were we impressed! Professional, attentive service from the start, and an excellent range of food. They have three set menus at different price points, the cheapest being around 400 RMB and the most expensive around 900 RMB. We opted... More

We stumbled upon this amazing Japanese restaurant thanks to Smart Shanghai. It is set in a nice location in the French Concession and you might not see it without specifically searching for it. It is set in a villa and has a huge atmospheric outside area in an open space conservatory with lots of candlelight. The staff was very friendly... More

Had an excellent dinner at the Shari, a Victorian style bunglow converted into a chic eatery in downtown Shanghai. The place is elegant, cosy and the staff really friendly. The food menu is extensive and the servings absolutely fresh. The sushi and the shashimi are very standard and so is the selection of drinks and beverages. The restaurant has both... More

Located in Shanghai French concession near Hengshan subway station, I've driven in front of several times and always wanted to give it a try. Finally, with my spouse, we went there for a romantic dinner. Restaurant is in an old manor and we got a table in the garden. Atmosphere was very nice. Japanese food tasted good but nothing special.... More

Set in a hertitage house with indoor, outdoor and glass house seating. Service was good. Food was nicely presented but taste was mediocre. We three ordered set lunch at 299 RMB per pax according to the local DianPing website + extra tempura, which could buy us an excellent dinner at the Bund for same price. Taste of pork in curry...

Visited there for dinner. Very light. Very tastefully presented. Service could be more engaging. But no regrets. Food sort of made up for that. Very artistically presented. Enjoyed my evening.

Beautiful restaurant set in an old colonial building grounds. The sashimi was very fresh and probably the best I have eaten in Shanghai. If you are a Japanese food fan then this place is a must try. The only negative point would be that the service was quite slow.

I was looking for a Sushi place with good reviews nearby my apartment and Shari was the selected place! I arrived as a solo diner and they accommodated me inside of the big house-- menu is not super extensive but has a couple of different options than your "standard" sushi places, e.g.: the Shari rice (which I didn't order but...

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.
