Had a wonderful meal here during our recent stay at the Indigo Shanghai. Food and service were excellent. The bar is especially nice with it's terrace offering amazing views of the Bund and the Pudong skyline. Nice mix of Western and Chinese hip crowd.

We just had our last dinner in Char before going back to England for X'mas, I have nothing to say about the view since we're million times here. Food is fabulous as its used to be, king prawns are freshly served with the cocktail dressing, and foie gras jam was very tasty, in particular every time we order steaks to... More

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.
