Description: Conceived by Paul Pairet for over 15 years and supported by VOL Group, Ultraviolet is the first restaurant of its kind uniting food with multi-sensorial technologies in order to create a fully immersive dining experience. A single table of ten seats only. A dining room of high-end technology. A 20-course "Avant-Garde" set menu. All guests sit together. The experience unfolds as a play. Food leads. Each course is enhanced with its own taste-tailored atmosphere: lights, sounds, music, scents, projection, images and imagination... And food.

This is a unique experience for all senses! Worth every penny, you will find no better and more unique dining event in Sh and probably also not in other places of the world. Also, very personal service and a staff which make you feelmthat they are proud to work for UV!

We went in December 2012. It was simply an amazing night from beginning to end. The food (which is fantastic) is just a part of the whole sensurory experience. It costs alot but is well worth it. I cannot recommend Ultra Violet enough

Local food not withstanding....this is an out of this world dining experience. Pairet has done a fanatical job of creating a purely sensual experience unlike anywhere else. You will need to break the piggy to eat there and that is if you can get a reservation. 3 months out and already full. Only restaurant sure to get Michelin *** when... More

One amazing course after the other of gourmet food, paired with great music, wines, surround video impressions and introduced in a perfect manner by Fabien and his crew. A dining experience so much more than a ‘mere’ gourmet dinner. A new dimension has been added to fine dining. This is something that is actually impossible to describe properly and has... More

Ultraviolet, an experimental new restaurant opened in Shanghai by the French chef Paul Pairet, whose aim is to deliver a multisensory eating experience that goes beyond the mere taste of the food. Served in a dining room that more closely resembles a movie theater, with 360-degree video screen walls, surround-sound speakers and high-tech overhead lighting, each dish is accompanied by... More

Yet, Ultraviolet has been the absolute crescendo, the best gastronomical experience ever. We have known Paul Pairet from his days at Jade 36 and were immediately fascinated by his skills... More

I'll spare the description of the experience, but suffice to say that it is an experience that excites your five senses. We had over 20 courses, and after every course, you are looking forward to the next course. From the presentation, taste, and smell of the course, all the way to the music, and images that accompanied the course is... More
