Located on a quiet street in Shànghǎi’s most desirable neighbourhood, Lost Heaven is stylish and atmospheric with subdued red lighting and a giant Buddha dominating the main dining area. The Yúnnán food is delicately flavoured and nicely presented, although purists may bemoan the way some dishes, such as the Dali chicken, aren’t as spicy as they should be.
The Yúnnán vegetable cakes come with a salsa-like garnish and make a fantastic starter. There are a few branches around town, including one on the Bund. Reserve.
