Set in the middle of the French Concession, Shintori Null II is literally hidden at the end of narrow laneway bordered with dim lights and bamboos, and once you’ve walked through its big unmarked revolving door, you’ll stumble in a stunning floor-to-ceiling concrete warehouse, with an army of Japanese chefs calling orders in front of large wooden tables in a classic Japanese zen design. We love the James-Bond like entrance but the food served here is also reliably yummy. The surrounding architecture is impressively minimalist, yet the place remains kind of cosy, and it always makes for a good, festive night out.
