It's not a secret that we came for business dinner not only coz the spectacular view, but also the best steak and personal service. We always book ahead at least 5 days to ensure a table near the window side, it's a MUST for the people we brought. Then the thing makes us coming back time by time, is the... More

We had a Lobster bisque soup as a starter and a Tajima Wagyu beef (cooked to perfection!!!) topped with a piece of foie gras served with black pepper sauce. We had also a portion steak chips each and that is too much,... More

We chose the beef carpaccio as a starter, the lamb rack and an eye fillet as a main course accompanied by some cauliflower gratin and steamed greens. All the... More

Made the reservation at Char a week earlier and the place was worth every penny we spent. The service was good and very professional. Also, one should not miss out on the rooftop bar which has an exceptional view of the Bund.

Unable to book a table early evening, we had to go at 21:00 when the "first half of match" was over. It's worth to pay a nice dinner at 400 euro with the best view of shanghai, yummy wagyu set and friendly service on a Valentine's evening. First the dinner set includes one bottle of champagne, after checked with my... More

If you are a Japanese beef lover, come and order just Tajima beef with your favourite drink and enjoy the view. It will worth for your money. Don't move around with other fancy menu, You will never know what you will end up with. They should plan to build this dining room to be panoramic view. Over all it"s one... More
