Epicure on 45 is an absolute waste of time and especially money. The food is terrible and over priced. I ordered the Shanghai duck and pancakes, and what a got was a piece of duck fried beyond recognition, a few steamed buns which were clearly frozen before hand and a sliver or two of lettuce. There was no flavour in... More

Revolving restaurants have a well deserved reputation for poor food. Taking a table at one is an implicit surrender to views over culinary satisfaction. This establishment embraces this philosophy in ways I could not have previously imagined. Truly awful Chinese food is hard to find in Shanghai but if you are having trouble locating it, go here. Of the four... More

View was superb and for that it is worth to visit. But the food wasn't good, don't bather to waste your money there. They are trying too much without any success.

The view from the restaurant is excellent during lunch and dinner time. Service is very good. The menu is limited, but all the food seems to be carefully prepared.

Food was a bit pricey, but I guess you are paying for the view too - which is, to say the least, spectacular. A variety of menu selections. Had a curtain between tables which gave some privacy. As what seems to be the case in all of Shanghai, once you are served you are forgotten. Though the restaurant has a... More

The food is pricey but good. Service is attentive and the best time to go is at around 6pm so that you can watch the entire city beneath you lighting up.

This restaurant had amazing service, the restaurant manager was so friendly and had the chef prepare a special "indian yellow dal" for our baby who likes it a specific way. We thoroughly enjoyed the visit and the food and I highly recommend it!

Up on the 45th floor, the fees are fantastic in this revolving restaurant. We had a cocktail in the bar 2 floors up first and then a really delicious dinner. The restaurant has thin curtains between the tables, which make you feel that the view is all yours! Yes it is expensive, but we thoroughly enjoyed the food, the wine,... More

The food was lovely. As a vegetarian I chose from the Indian menu and I wasn't disappointed. The food, wine and restaurant was all really nice but it was a very quite night for them so the atmosphere wasn't great. Only about 8 tables in as far as I could see so not their fault. The staff were lovely and... More
