Lots of expats. Good food. My guests loved the place. I had the huge bowl of cocktail. It was basic. The food was not only from Sichuan, but other places too. I think that I've had better Sichuan food than this place.

We were very disappointed. We expected a very good traditional food but the food quality was below average. Some dishes were unedible. Like the chicken dish we had. Service was average. Our waitress didn't understand English. Unclear how this restaurant got such a high mark...More

Great place in regards to food quality, and foreigner-friendliness (all food is with pictures). Reasonable prices. Great cocktails too - especially Basil Drop, being their signature.

I may not be a Chinese food expert but dishes I ordered were regular Chinese to which chili was added. Had them before and not in a Sichuan speciality restaurant. Besides fish was quite chewy which makes me believe not fresh. Besides 95% of customers...More

Large restaurant serving up spicy hot goodness. A huge menu of options from seafood, pork, chicken and beef. Tofu is also an option. Good service and worth the visit.

I was here on a weekday and it was less crowded than I thought. The restaurant is pretty cozy with a dark interior and dim lighting. I ordered a glass noodle dish with shrimps which was very tasty. Also the lemon drop drink was good.

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
