The best I've tested so far during my three weeks stay. Authentic, tasty, spicy and quiet cheap (100 CNY for 4 dishes and a beer). To be recommended

Amazing place which we often go to, recently choosing less crowded outpost on Dongping road. Signature cumin ribs, cabbage with bacon, fried string beans with chili and shrimp loaded with garlic and chili are staples and never dissappoint.

This restaurant consistently serves up some great Hunan food that is spicy but also extremely flavourful. The cumin ribs are legendary and I've never ordered a dish I didn't love. There are three locations and all of them are interesting, comfortable, and clean. If you like Hunan food or at least spicy food, you have to try this! They also... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle pockets that have their own unique attractions. The schools have formed pockets of international communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang. Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have built up over the years to cater to these communities. While living here means you are relatively far away from Shanghai’s usual hot spots, the large parks, spacious homes and proximity to great Japanese and Korean food keep the neighborhoods popular.
