Tucked away in the charming pedestrianised French quarter (Xintiandi), this is perhaps the smartest place that Shanghai has to offer, along with Three on the Bund. The décor is as smart as anything in London, and the menu tries for sophisticated fusion, with an Australian chef. Chairs were comfortable, the service is exemplary, and the prices also match London. This was full of expats living in Shanghai. The food itself was very good, with some delicate scallops, top class prawns in Szechuan style with carefully controlled spices, and good fish. However there seemed to me just a hint of style over substance here. The cooking was around 13/20 in my usual marking system, which is OK but quite a lot of money for a restaurant of that level.
