My party got a bunch of items and all were amazing. Definitely the best sushi we’ve gotten in Shanghai and we come atleast 4-5 Times per year. Sat upstairs and the restaurant was very pretty and service was better than usual for China. A must...More

The sushi is really great! but what sets it apart for us is the Oyama-san's character he is such great entertainer. Which marries food and theatre!

Small but very cozy Japanese restaurant. Beautiful design that reflects the culture of Japanese restaurants. Excellent service. Very fresh fish and seafood. Amazing Japanese food. At your choice - sake, beer, Chinese wine, or a small selection of western wines.

The restaurant is a bit difficult for tourist. The course was too big for me with so so quality of ingredients. I am sure I have had better omakase in Bangkok or Singapore. Felt a bit dissapointed but read many reviews before I went so,...More

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
