good food, but the restaurant is very COLD (temperature)

We have eaten there twice, once for New years eve and once on Chinese new years eve. Both time we have paid for the set menu, which was not as good as we though.

The idea was there but no crowd. Maybe I came on the wrong day. But the live band... is not even 'alive' like a mime robot. Only sing the same circles of song. Sad3!

The first time we went to this restaurant, the views were fabulous. We could see across the river and all the beautiful buildings there (including the TV station, Jing Mao Tower, etc.). The second time we went, the views weren't as good due to the smog. The food both times was really good. The first time we had Chinese food... More

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

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!
