Hidden away on a pretty lane in Shanghai’s historic French Concession, Lost Heaven offers exquisite Mountain Mekong cuisine with rich culinary influences from the surrounding provinces of the fabled Tea-and-Horse trading route. Set within a spacious dimly-lit 1920’s villa, Lost Heaven’s décor is the epitome of Oriental glamour with bold scarlet fabrics, silk wall hangings, dark wooden furnishings and shimmering lanterns. Enjoy a drink in the cosy lounge area on the ground floor, moving on to the multi-level dining room presided over by an imposing Buddha statue. Dishes showcase ingredients and spices drawn from the rich diversity of the region, where some of the highlights of the extensive menu include the marinated eggplant and tofu, Dai tribe pork in lettuce wraps, rich Burmese curry, and the Miao hot and sour fish. Meals can also be enjoyed at an extra-long communal table, paying homage to the Hani tribal tradition of the endless feast. Their second location, Lost Heaven The Bund, offers the same delectable cuisine in a more spacious four-story venue. Don’t miss the picturesque rooftop terrace bar for Asian-inspired cocktails overlooking the glittering Bund and Shanghai skyline. This is one of our favourite dining spots in Shanghai. Advance bookings essential.
