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

Located on the Bund, Sun with Aqua has live sharks swimming at the entrance... it's dramatic! And the grey, Japanese-minimalist, natural rock inspired and clean wood decor at Sun with Aqua adds to the delightfully impressive atmosphere. A stream of water runs through the restaurant, ensuring that the "qi" energy flows throughout Sun with Aqua. The food, especially the sushi,... More

Food was disappointing. Very bland. Asked for chicken breast and received dark meat chicken leg. Portions tiny. Wanted spicy tuna roll, got mild. Not one good dish.
