Cantonese in French Concession

This crammed Cantonese diner does its best to teleport you to 1950s Hong Kong, with old-style tiled floors, retro stained-glass and whirring ceiling fans to set the scene. You’ll need to wait to get a table, so use the time wisely and peruse the extensive menu of classic comfort food (curries, sweet-and-sour pork, stir-fried beef in sweet sauce, pineapple buns) in advance.
