Actually I went to "Les 5 Sens" couple of times while I was living in Nanjing in 2013/14. Really liked the atmosphere of this restaurant, the food is authentically French and properly prepared (the Fois Gras could be a bit better freed from nerves though); the selection of wines is quite pleasent (some older bottles for fair prices) and the...

Love the atmosphere, but I do not visit often. The steak tartar was disgusting. The house red wine had been refrigerated. I do not order those anymore. I had a tasty lamb dish once. Everything is pricy. Service is not exceptional (considering the price).

Just went there 2 days ago, based on the reviews I saw here. I wasn't disappointed. Had a 3 course meal with wine and everything was delicious! Heads up: very difficult to find - I called and the manager came to pick me up because I couldn't find the place. Everybody was extremely nice and friendly.

My first visit to le Shang , also known as les 5 sens, after rebuilding. New furniture, new entrance , the restaurant feels welcome again. I like it. Food was western style, tasted good and delicious. Deserves surely more visitors. Friendly staff, dinner was quickly served.

Well, i make a lot of French food at home, but this place has to make money so they're very stingy in that sense, like charging for bread and water is a sin for a real french restaurant. It is like charging for more tortillas at a Mexican restaurant or for kimchi at a Korean restaurant. But the food is... More

Small, cosy restaurant offering great French food at very reasonable prices. We went with a large group of friends and the waitress, who spoke very good English, looked after us wonderfully. The food was delicious and not the kind of thing that you can usually find in China. However, the desserts were the best thing - really scrumptious. The whole... More

I really liked the food, the prices were reasonable and cheaper than the French Restaurants in Shanghai. They are only open for dinner, so that is unfortunate. The atmosphere isn't much, but they were working on that. It's quite small but worth going to. I will go agsin for sure.

Frequent customer since three years. Steak is great, salmon bruchettas, goose liver with jam, too and the chocolate cake with fluid choco inside is a dream. Best service in NJ restaurants. Water and wine is refilled without asking for waiter, two small plates are brought automatically if you are there as a couple etc. Nice small restaurant for a relaxed... More

Very nice little restaurant with a outdoor seating area (which is not very common in Nanjing). French decors inside, menus in English and French. Good food, very nice staff and nice surroundings. Would definitely recommend this place!
