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

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

I usually go there once a month with my wife as we both like Japanese food. Never had any disappointment regarding food or service. We always seat at the counter around the open kitchen where you can see the chefs preparing the dishes. Only the freshest products especially for the fishes and seafood. Service is efficient and always done with... More

First visit to Shanghai and was invited to have dinner at this restaurant. We ordered a variety of dishes to share. I would normally have avoided sashimi while in China, but as this was a high end restaurant, I decided to take my chances. The sashimi was very fresh and melted in your mouth. We also ordered the Kobe beef,... More

Really enjoyed the dinner here - very fresh sashimi, wagyu beef done perfectly, a good selection of drinks and great service. The restaurant has a great setting for a good meal and can do for a special occasion. We were sat in a corner with no view (unsure if there is any Bund-view at all) but the food presentation compensated... More
