The restaurant was located at 70A Zheijiang Road. One difficult thing a foreigner might encounter here would be the language barrier. The people here did not speak English at all so without our friend the translator, things would be a bit difficult.
On this stretch of road, there were other Muslim shops. Three shops beside the restaurant were selling bread and halal meat.
Our selection for lunch: mutton sate, meatballs soup and mushroom. The sate (barbecued meat on bamboo stick skewers) were definitely something to die for. It was very well marinated, had no mutton smell at all and you could taste all the spices blended and were absorbed by the meat. The meatballs that floated on the soup filled with "so-hoon" (a type of Chinese noodle) were also delicious,
We had this special drinks, something like tea but with different types of ingredients like rose petals and "longan". The waiter just poured hot water in the glasses that were already filled with all the ingredients and the drinks should taste better when it was hot.

We went to two other Chinese Muslim restaurants in Shanghai. More review coming soon.
