Yershari

Top choice Xinjiang

in Xujiahui & South Shanghai

Yershari offers a slightly smarter version of the typically raucous Xinjiang dining experience, but this place is still no-frills and plenty of fun with regular live entertainment. Delicious classic Uyghur dishes include noodles, meat skewers, hearty stews and thick Uyghur bread, plus the awesomely tangy tomato-and-pepper salad and spicy-and-sour potato shreds. Pair your meal with black beer.

The lamb chops are particularly excellent too. This spot is ideal for big groups – try the whole roasted lamb (¥1688).
