Indian Vegetarian restaurants

by Ferrarri

Hi

Does anyone know of any Indian Vegetarian restaurants in Shanghai or if any Indian restaurants in the city.

Will be there on 11/10/06, so a urgent reply would be needed.

Thank you

there are more than ten indian restaurants downtown shanghai, but not sure about vegetarian one. you'd better get the free magzine 'that's shanghai' at airport, hotel or bars, most restaurants recommended on it.

I agree with the previous poster: There are dozens, and perhaps hundreds of restaurants that serve Indian cuisine, some of them--exclusively. However, I am not aware of any restaurant which is--strictly speaking--completely vegetarian. Doubtless, every Indian restaurant will have numerous selections which do not contain meat, but my problem in answering this question is that some vegetarians eat eggs, fish, poultry or dairy products...and some do not. What is "vegetarian" exactly, huh?

Get a copy of "That's Shanghai" or any of the other English-language monthlies, and scan the restaurant listings and reviews.

There's a good one <5 mins away from where I stay (close to where Xiangyang Lu market used to be, off Huaihai Zhonglu). Do you have a budget in mind? Drop me a VTMail if you want to meet up and have dinner together or something like that.

There don't seem to be hundreds of Indian restaurants in Shanghai unless they are well-hidden. I have seen a couple of Indian restaurants but they are not on every corner, by any stretch of the imagination. I have seen many more Muslim restauarants here. But you can find several Indian restaurants listed here although vegetarian offerings may not be a certainty:

http://www.cityweekend.com.cn/shanghai/listings/dining/indian/

Almost any restaurant has a few vegetarian dishes but few are strictly meat-fish-dairy-free. Vegetarianism is truly becoming a vague term as one other VT has mentioned. Many who say "I am a vegetarian" actually should say "I have been a non-red-meat-itarian for the entire last month of my life" or "I am usually vegetarian except on weekends, holidays or special events".

For someone who is a strict Hindu, the diet is often vegan or nearly so with no fish, shellfish, eggs or milk products. But I know some Indians who don't stick closely to this idea. Muslim Indians and non-religious Indians may eat meat (no pork for Muslims) and dairy foods if they wish.

Some "Indian" restaurants are truly authentic and that can often mean pricy. But others, as is true also of some "Italian" restaurants, in Shanghai may use recipe ideas that fit the nationality but the cooks may all be Han Chinese and not really trained in Indian cooking style so it may not be very authentic. You should take a look in the kitchen if possible to confirm that at least one Indian cook is on duty. Even one of my Chinese friends just yesterday made a similar comment to me. Another good indicator may be if Indian people are at the tables. Of course, if they just wandered in as tourists, that doesn't guarantee they affirm the authenticiy of the cuisine.

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Ancient Chinese Seals..

by marsistanbul

Chinese seals,as a distinctive form of national art including the ancient seals and literati's seal carving,developed from very ancient time.Originated from the designed mould stamps,bronze seals appeared in an embryonic form in the period of Shang and Zhou dynasties(ca.16th-771 BC).They were first used as an official validation of authority power by high-rank officials and later widely as a signature by private persons due to the changes of social structures.
Since 16th century,the literati of the Ming dynasty combined the art of painting and writing with the art of seal carving,bringing forward the very ingenious and scholarly flavored styles of literati seal carving.
Materials for seals;
Ancient Chinese seals were mainly made of metal,jade,stone,ceramics,bone and ivory.In the Ming dynasty(1368-1644),stone seals became popular,that gave the priority in material to the rise of the literati's seal carving,thus pyrophyllite becoming the main material for seals since then.

Shanghai Railway Station

by mke1963

The ticket office has an English-speaking line. Look for it on the window.
The station has left luggage facilities either staffed (at the right hand end of the station as you look at it) or in lockers in several places, including the soft class waiting lounge. You will need a ticket to gain entry to the soft-class area first though.
The taxi rank is down under the station (escalators in the middle of the concourse).

It is a very easy station for departures and arrivals, although, needless to say, the hard-class method is incredibly crowded.
All signs are bilingual.

If you speak Chinese, there is an advance booking ticket office opposite the northern end of the station on the corner. This can be quicker than the main ticket office at the weekend.

Amazing Nanjing Lu

by travelpug

Nanjing Lu is the pedestrian mall in Shanghai. It's best visited at night when all the neon signboards are lit up. To be honest, I did not get much shopping done here. It's more like a place to watch the locals. This long shopping haven starts from the Metro Nanjing Lu station all the way to People's Square station. Can you imagine how long is the street?

WARNING:
Watch out for the 'chu-chu train' while walking on the street. It carries mostly children and tours along Nanjing Road.

Take a boat along the Huang Po River

by albaaust

We did not do this because it was so misty that we knew we would see very little. What I have done is take photos of prices etc that are posted along the Bund so you get an idea of what you can do.

I would recommend that you consider even doing a night cruise. If the air is clear it would be spectacular!!

Just walk along the Bund and you will come to all the boat docks advertising their prices.

fishi88's new Shanghai Page

by fishi88

what a big changes in Shanghai now!
they said that they are the biggest city in China.and i agree with them in some terms.
many big buildings and modernizing very quick.
sad things for me that their price is even higher than in Korea now.
But most of the people are friendly and kind,if you only to find who can speak english.
last iwas in beijing i saw many bicycles on the streets but in Shanghai is now filled with many cars.
so it caused some air polutions though.
and Kentuky chicken is very booming and selling well there.
i couldn't find seats there.
