The quality of the food here was excellent. Yes, the prices are quite high and if you want to eat cheaply in Shanghai you have thousands of other alternatives but this place is simply a cool place to be with quality food and of course the location in Xintiandi is excellent. There were three of us and all of our starters and main courses were great. My wife and daughter had the Tuna Tataki as starter and found it heavenly.
Reading various reviews about bad service I can only conclude that you all had either bad nights or things have improved. Admittedly we were there on a relatively quiet Tuesday evening but the staff could not have been nicer. Unfortunately we did not get the name but there was a very nice young waiter who really did his utmost to have a conversation in English and was a credit to the establishment.
So don't go if you are feeling stingy but if you want a pleasant ambience with high quality fusion food, give this a try and I don't think you will be disappointed.
