New name is "Sichuan Folk", the restaurant was very nice, the food was excellent and the dinner show was excellent. while sichuan style it was not to spicy. we watched the Sichuan Opera the show of masks changing was amazing. I will definitely go back on my next Shanghai trip.

All dishes are not so spicy. We can enjoy Sichuan style. Vegetable, chicken, pork, bean guard... every food is OK. The staff is very kind. It is only bad point that our booking was canceled when we arrived 3 minutes delayed. Usually, it is waited for 15 minutes.

Taken here by a Chinese host who did all the ordering. I'd eaten Sichuan a few times before but a couple of interesting new dishes popped up, such as the "Snake fish". Everything was very good, if not something i would usually order. Remember not to bite into the Sichuan pepper corns!

This is the second restaurant I have visited from this chain in Shanghai, and the first one was in Expo area. In this case it sits on the 3rd floor of a building, with very spacious rooms for groups and even a larger one were you can dine and watch the show of masks changing. The food was delicious and...

Was taken here by Chinese hosts on recent visit to Shanghai. They did all the ordering but we enjoyed everything. It was 'hot' food but not mouth numbing. The highlight was the face changing performance. Lots of commotion at door, then a person heavily dressed in Chinese traditional clothes came in mobbed by 'cameras'! He then performed an amazing dance... More

Great Sichuan food - also the mask show is very fascinating - nevertheless, the overall atmosphere is a little bit disappointing as you cannot really feel that you are supposed to be in a Sichuanese environment

Another regular stop in my "where to entertain visiting friends" route. The "Changing Faces" performance is always a winner, and the delicious and authentic fiery Sichuan food never fail to impress.

This restaurant in Pudong has changed its name to Sichuan Folk. We went there to see the famous Face Changing show. It is performed at around 7:00 pm every night. The restaurant takes reservations, so you can be sure to get a table for the show. It is the most amazing dance with the dancer miraculously changing his facial color... More

Ba Guo Bu Yi appears to have about a dozen restaurants throughout China (most notably in Beijing), and is the place a local Chinese colleague might take a visitor to Shanghai. The feature act is the (apparently) famous "face-changer" who performs an intriguing act for about 10 minutes starting at 8PM. The food is spicy (some of it VERY spicy!)... More
