Bella Napoli > Nanhui Lu

This place is one of our staples - really consistent quality and some of the dishes are seriously amazing. There aren't many restaurants where you take a bite and realize the cook has actually performed some sort of magic to make the food taste like this. My favorite dishes are the steamed mussels (soak up the sauce with the fresh complimentary bread, yum!), vodka salmon pasta & vegetarian pizza (with eggplant, mushroom, buffalo mozzarella etc). It does get a bit pricey here, but definitely worth it. Highly recommended!

Pure & Whole > Shanghai Centre

I really wanted to like this restaurant. I really did! I'm very much into health foods, and was excited to see this place open from the beginning, back when it was called "kush". Again & again I've gone here to try different dishes, and I usually end up leaving feeling weirdly too full with indigestion after eating a small to average portion. So I'm not sure what it is, but the food never agrees with me. Maybe they're using some type of strange oil? The wraps are overly oily, as are the burgers. My most recent order last night was half a pumpkin & wild rice salad + falafel, 3 quinoa spring rolls, and a coconut cake. All tasted delicious, but once again left me feeling weirdly foggy & clogged - definitely not the feeling you want after eating "health" food. Sorry, but I'll take Element Fresh, Wagas, Simply Thai, Anadolu, etc. any day over this place - at those western staple restaurants the food quality is very consistent and I've never left feeling queasy, even after seriously pigging out! (Read: deep fried cheese sticks w/hot sauce & spinach pizza from Anadolu, for example). I'm not a picky eater and eat out / take out at many Western and Chinese restaurants around the city. Seriously confused and disappointed in this place!

Big Bamboo > Hongmei Lu

These days shanghai is crazy hot, it is a perfect time to go the bar , have some beer and watch some matches with friends. I oftenly go to bigbamboo to spend some time with friends, nice. This venue is very easy to find, the service is very good, feel very comfortable.
