A friend recommended Zen, so I decided to give it a try. I went with my husband Friday night after eating nearby on Anfu Lu. After a long week, I was actually just looking to fall asleep and wake up hopefully relaxed.
The receptionist was friendly. She answered our questions about the different massages. My husband opted for the aroma oil massage and I chose the Zen massages. She offered us a choice of oils, which we sampled before settling on our choices.
The therapist came and led us to a nice room on the third floor. The decor is minimalist, tasteful. There was soft lighting and asian music playing in the background, which I found relaxing.
The massage was great. The receptionist must have passed on that I mentioned that my neck was stiff because she paid extra attention to it, and that helped. My husband was also very happy. I liked that the therapist checked that the massage was not too strong after a few minutes. I asked for her name and she gave it to me, so I'll ask for her next time.
The prices were quite reasonable, and we've booked another visit for Sunday.
I go to Thailand very often, and I actually think this place may have the most authentic Thai food in shanghai. It is certainly the best value. It's small and the service is inconsistent, but I still recommend it.
I went before to Tock's and liked it. Went again on Wednesday and was less impressed. The smoked meats quality has gone down, the bread in the sandwich is poor and the fries of the poutine were cold. Over 100rmb for a sandwich and average poutine is not inexpensive in such an environment. The most negative thing for me was, as I was leaving... I saw clearly a rat trap over the oven in the kitchen. They didn't even attempt to hide it. It's a bit scary. I hope no rats' meat or even worse rats' droppings in the food.
