“Interesting but uneven food experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

I visited this restaurant with 5 colleagues on a relaxed dinner. Service was great, even if the AC was blowing at incredible levels (some of us were a bit cold).
We had a very cheap dinner for the level of complexity of the food. They served great eggplants and some interesting fishes and meats.
Unfortunately, not all dishes were at the same level of research and taste, which led to an uneven, yet very good experience.
Don't be affraid by the elevator... The restaurant is really worthwhile.

“Funny little place with great food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

Did you ever go to one of those college venues where students are learning to run a restaurant, it's cheap as chips, feels a bit like a science lab and the food is great? This reminded me of that experience. The venue is lacking, can't put my finger on why - but the food - and the menu - are really top notch. The service could not have been any better either, very friendly helpful staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and were pleasantly surprised when the bill came. I showed the manager my print out of their "#5 Restaurant in Shanghai" TripAdvisor review which prompted us to try his restaurant. He was very humble, said they are quite new, and appreciated the feedback. I would certainly go back there, but don't expect a romantic evening!

“A Must go in Shanghai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

I've been visited Shanghai many times & this restaurant is on the top of my list now. It opened early this year & the owner is from Toronto. The service is top-notch & the food are so delicious with good presentation. The price is reasonable given with the quality of food. I stayed at the JW Marriotte which is abt 10 mins walk to the restaurant.

“"Great Experience"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

My husband and I went here on a recent visit to Shanghai after reading positive reviews on TA.
We were not disappointed, we thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
We received a warm welcome when we exited the lift. The food and wine was most delicious. A very relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Service was very good and Eric the manager was a delightful man.
Would highly recommend.

“Nice find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

It seems most of the recommended restaurants in Shanghai are not Chinese, for some reason. We checked this place out based on TA recommendations and we are so glad we did. Excellent fusion food. The manager and staff are so friendly, and the menu is so extensive it's difficult to choose. They are easy to find if you know that they are in a theater building and there is a receptionist downstairs to direct you to the elevator. Ok the dining room itself is not luxurious (as another reviewer has noted), but perfectly acceptable.
