Delicious thai food (at least for westerners tastes). Big & tasty portions. It was quite crowdy and we had to wait 45 minutes to get a table. If accepted, booking is strongly recommended.

good Thai food in Xintiandi. Maybe service could be better and also to understand that it is important to have the order in good time.

Went early at 4pm to avoid the lines, by 5 pm people were lined up. The decor inside is contemporary with Thai accents for a nice ambiance. I recommend the curry crab over the black pepper crab. We had some spring rolls with spicy sweet and sour sauce, a bottle of white wine, a glass noodle shrimp salad, black pepper... More

Good location with easy access for the street Thai food is not 100% as has some Chinese influence.. but very close. Service was very good. Well priced with a good selection on the menu. Worth a visit.

Good location. When it comes to Thai food, just average. Nothing to write home about. Not sure but seems like they have no Thai chef there, just Chinese. So it shows on food quality. Average upscale fast food with price way above. Service is another issue. I know it is very critical to save on labor cost. Our server was... More

Very good thai food. Large variety. Traditional thai tastes. Value for money absolutely ok. Currently closed for renovation until early November.

My colleagues and I had dinner in this nice restaurant in the amazing street of the "long noses" (the way we, western tourists are called here). Great food, we tasted beef (my favourite being a kind of minced beef meat skewer), chicken, crab, noodles, fish, coconut pudding. Discrete draught thai beer. An excellent funny dinner! Highly recommended!

Staying in Xintiandi

Neighbourhood Profile
The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and shops along Madang Road. The pleasant Taipinghu Park provides the area with green space and is also home to Shanghai Fashion Week twice a year. It’s not all glitter and glamour, though, as the rise of Danshui Road has given the Xintiandi area a shot of toned-down character. Small bars and cafes, mostly owned by locals, have people hanging out in a formerly quiet, unassuming part of the neighborhood.
