On the grounds of Xijiao State Guest House and enormous garden, the restaurant is built by a lake dotted with lotus and surrounded by towering trees. Ducks and swans and a very occasional red-crowned crane can be seen.
The menu features Shanghai cuisine. Signature dishes include tossed black fungus in wasabi sauce, deep-fried fish with soy sauce, tofu stewed with cabbage.
The highlight of the spring menu is knife fish (daoyu), only available for around a month. It’s delicate, very bony, very expensive and close to being endangered.
