The vast Mountain Mekong region is one of the most exotic and beautiful areas on earth, a little-known land rich in history and filled with sweeping rivers, snow-capped peaks, and fertile fields. It is a meeting place of Asian cultures, including Thai, Lao, Burmese, and Chinese influences, and it also contains many ethnic minorities who forage in the hills and farm the fertile fields as they pursue their time-honored lifestyles.
For many centuries, the Mountain Mekong was linked together by the fabled Tea-and-Horse Trail, a trading route that stretched from the mountains of Tibet, down through fruitful Yunnan province, and into the northern hill country of Burma and Thailand. Like pearls on a necklace, the Lost Heaven restaurant group string together the cuisines of the Tea-and-Horse Trail, who was started with the opening of Coconut Paradise-Thai Cuisine in 2005. The Lost Heaven-Yunnan restaurant is opened in 2006, while Lost Heaven the Bund had his inauguration in 2009.
Lost Heaven not only brought a brand-new ambiance to regional dining, but also retained the culinary arts of the province’s ethnic minorities. With folklore-inspired designs and authentic minority cuisines. The classy interiors, decorated in genuine folk arts and cultural totems, plus exotic regional spice-and-flavor combinations, soon turned into one of Shanghai’s most beloved and popular restaurant destinations, attracting celebrities and different fields clientele from all over the world.
