Shànghǎi's second-oldest vegetarian restaurant (opened in 1922), Godly never fails to perplex Western vegetarians – almost everything on the menu is prepared to resemble meat, down to sinewy textures and bony chunks. Don’t worry though, the smoked beef and the fried chicken with sesame oil are actually made of tofu, no matter how convincing they look.

The interior is a blend of stone and wood with Venetian blinds, honeycombed lamps and a couple of Buddhist statues thrown in for good fortune.
