Pistolera > Hongqiao

Had a great lunch at Pistolera with my friend. All the food we tried was quite delicious - chicken nachos & beef Fajitas were definitely our favourite. The service was polite and speaking english.

Pistolera > Hengshan Lu

I really like this place. I've been here for the first for a birthday party few weeks ago. The atmospher is very mexican, the waiters speak very good english and the service is very fast. I lover their portion, they are pretty big and with a good price value. I agree with the people that said that sometimes the music is too loud inside to have a dinner and this is why I don't give 5 stars but 4. but if you like salsa music and you like mexican food it's a great idea to come to this place. I love their nachos. Probably the best in town.

Big Bamboo > Nanyang Lu

Decent sports bar with a pretty big venue. Friendly people, including the service, affordable food and beer. There are also pool tables, which is great. Will come back for sure, as there is not a lot of sports bars in Shanghai were you can watch games. oh, there are also big TV's, of course :P
