Real Japanese Food in Shanghai, but a bit expensive ...

Around the Bund are a lot of expensive Restaurant, but are they also good and the Price worth? There is a Restaurant with a real Japanase Food at the Bund No 3. The Atmosphere with a big open Kitchen is quiet nice, but not really romantic! At the Case you prefer, they also offer a lot of privat... read more

The location is not suitable compare to price level. They told us location will close at 11 pm and last order at 10 pm but we check in at 9pm and we realized that the kitchen was already empty and closed. After we got the order, foods arrived very quickly and waiters were very stressy to let us eat. At... More

Wonderful Japanese restaurant with something for everyone. Very convenient location if you're in the Bund area. Terrific layout with a playful array of rooms and seating. We had a group and ordered a bunch of dishes to share -- sushi, hibachi, tempura -- it was all great!

The price iyou pay is quite expensive (kind of Fine Dining Japanese) but when you call to get a booking staff don't even speak English. When asked to book a table for lunch they will always tell you "sorry, no seats" which is absolutely not true as if you go there directly they always have seats available... Like the food... More

Sun with Aqua is in quite good location. The food is good, but not exceptional. Prices are ok for lunch, but bit pricey for dinner. Lunch set (sushi & sashimi) is best option here. Lunch prices are typically at least RMB 200 per head without drinks, but it is easy to spend 400 per head. All ingredients are fresh. Food... More

Was really craving sushi and looked up restaurants in the area. This place came up and the reviews were great...and it didn't disappoint. Very, very great sushi and great, wide ranging Japanese menu. Perfect.

The sashimi is great, and the different beef options are fantastic, served with fried garlic slices and wasabi mustard. The chefs work in full view of the visitors. Highly recommended.

The presentation and quality of the sashimi at Sun and Aqua is fabulous! I always sit at the bar, where you can see the many chefs busily at work. I have overheard people who sit at the tables complaining about various aspects of the service. I'm in Shanghai, not North America, and find service extremely good compared to many other... More

The sushi presentation was very pleasing. I asked for a napkin, took them 30 minutes to find a drink napkin, then they brought me "table cloth" to cover myself with? I just wanted a regular napkin. Asked for ice water, brought room temperature water. Asked for description of the fish being served off the preset menu. Noone could answer...

I like to go to Sun with Aqua at lunch time but each time you call to get a reservation the staff will tell you that it is full (they are not even checking). I have already tried to book several times and they always tell me "No sorry, we're full" and then I went directly on spot and they... More
