The view

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.

Its on the main walking road with shopping. It's convenient to walk into the mall next door and along Nanjing Road for all the major restaurants. The Reception staff and Bar staff were not that interested. The bathrooms downstairs smelt, even though there was an attendant there was litter on the floor in the ladies and my son said no... More

This restaurant didn't attend my expectations. Very common food, low taste and overpriced. A simple coke zero is usd 10,00 and food in small quantity. Not worthy and I wouldn't come back again.

View is tremendous and the restaurant rotates very slowly - like the old Post Office Tower restaurant in London many years ago

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. Don't get me wrong, food is very good, just the portions were very small. Prices are a little high, don't forget you pay for the view.... More

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.

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
