Pure&Whole is my favorite in town for vegetarian and vegan food. Serves lunch and dinner. All food and drinks freshly prepared from organic sources. Today went there for lunch and had our favorite dishes. Spring rolls, spicy black bean paddies, quinoa bowl and arabian wraps. Just delicious. Highly recommend.

A quick and refreshing lunch located on central Shanghai. The food was delicious; highly recommend the black bean and the red pepper walnut dip. The Arabian wrap is wonderful as well. I enjoyed the chai but the amount of leafy materials could be far less.

Hi Treed, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We appreciate your kind words and glad you enjoyed your lunch. The Chai does have loose leaves by design but perhaps there were too many and I apologize that didn't quite hit the mark. I hope you visit us again for a future business lunch or a relaxed... More

This is for the Shanghai Centre location: TripAdvisor refuses to find this one. Excellent food, a huge menu choice. Nice mix of Chinese and Western food styles. Good to see the calories listed with each choice. Makes it very easy to choose if you're watching your weight. This location also did offer wine and beer. Everything looked really good. It... More

Rainbow Claire, Thank you for writing to the community here and so glad you enjoyed your meal. We are still trying to fix the location review feature as we have three shops and it always defaults to our Yanping Road address, so thank you for specifying where you ate. Not sure of any plans to open in NZ anytime soon!... More

Doesn't feel like your in Shanghai, with this escape through healthy food options. Just ate dinner here and it was delicious. The menu choices are great, the prices reasonable and the setting very modern and clean. I highly rate this place to anyone looking for some good clean healthy food.

We have been living in Shanghai for two years but somehow never been to pure&whole - big mistake. This place offers satisfying, tasty dishes with fresh flavors. The ambience is simple, but relaxing. That the food is vegetarian should be actually only a side line comment, because this is essentially just good, tasty and healthy food. Exactly what everyone needs... More

We stumbled upon this location around the corner from our office - and were we SURPRISED at how incredible the offerings were. Lunchtime specials were diverse and so many options to choose from. We struggle with finding good vegan food throughout Asia, and we have to say this is one of the best vegan restaurants we have found.

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
