Very sorry. I came here over the last 3 years many times and food quality from its original seemed to go down and up over time. But Ris visit marked a negative. Bad steak quality and fatty fries, almost stinky. Of course whilst food quality degrading the price is increasing. I will now not return although I live in the... More

Had the beef platter for three. The meat was coocked to perfection and service was very good. They have an array of good salt from different parts of the world, so i hoped that maybe the chef could use a bit less salt on the food, so i could have tested more of the salt we got at the table....

Rooftop of the hotel indigo, this bar is not as popular as vue (at the Hyatt), but I actually think this place is better. Situated on the south side of the bund vs vue which is at the north, so gives a nicer view IMHO. Pricey drinks meant for the posh.

it's a super nice location and a rooftop bar where we had the best vodka martini in China as well as the view is amazing. The restaurant serves expensive beefsteaks from Australia, very friendly and attentive service, we ordered the cod and lamb both cooked to perfection. it's a place you must go but don't forget to make a reservation...

This bar is on 30th floor of Hotel Indigo. The views across to Pudong and up the Bund from the outside terrace are quite amazing. A must visit spot to enjoy a reasonably priced cocktail before or after dinner on any trip to Shanghai.

Enjoyed my time, the atmosphere and of course the food, especially their starter signature dish the foie gras is to die for.

We had diner here with a group of 11 business partner. The food was good, the view excellent. Point for improvement: the service. Very unattentive. We were basically left alone for a large period at the beginning, took quite long to get our first drinks. They didn't orchestrate the evening as I had expected.

It's truly the best experience of looking at the sunset on the roof top bar at 5pm, paid 50 rmb for a glass of prosecco which is the best deal in town too. Ordered the wagyu beef steak in the restaurant on the 29th floor, although not even sure it's coming from Japanese, but it's very tender and juicy, staffs... More

The food was outstanding as the service. The meat is very tender and well cooked. The view is literally breathtaking, you see all shanghai and the view on the river is so good. Highly recommended to go there even though the price is pretty high.
