Cuckoo in Shanghai

Just off of Chun Shen Lu, you can visit a nice Hunan restaurant called Cuckoo. The food is not bad, and the atmosphere is very amusing. Mao Zedong's hometown is in Hunan, and the restaurant uses that in its advertising. The place is set up with very traditional style buildings, and all the staff wears the drab green army-style uniforms that were the norm in China 30 years ago. It is kind of a cute idea, and I couldn't help but smile when I went in.

The food at Cuckoo is not as spicy as you normally would like for Hunan cuisine, but the flavor is not bad otherwise. It's worth a visit, just to enjoy the cute concept underlying it all.
