Decent Indian restaurant popular amongst western tourists. Can't go wrong if you are a vegetarian. Just ask the friendly staff who would be happy to rustle up to your requirements. Veg kadai with man bread was fantastic. The cool docks also has live jazz band artists performing. Excellent ambient atmosphere just a few minutes walk from the bund. Thoroughly recommend... More

Much better management than before but still the curries are ruined by poor quality meat. Lots of fat on red meat and no breast meat in chicken dishes.

Really delicious and amazing food. The atmosphere is also amazing. A bit pricey but would recommend as I tasted one of the best Indian dishes.

Excellent location at The Cool Docks. Amazing ambience, good food & great personalized service. Ask for anything and be assured it will be done. The kebabs are very tasty especially the fish lasooni.

Went there as part of a family group for lunch. The food was exceptional for a foreign land and I would say even GOOD if it was served back home. The ambiance is very nice and it is located very close to the nanjing road. I come to shanghai often. I shall return

Located in food court, inside Cool Docks, this restaurant serves authentic Indian cuisine. Their paneer to,ka is excellent and worth a try. Their deserts are average but main courses are really nice.

I normally go to this place at least a couple of times when I visit Shanghai. They are pretty decent guys with quality food & nothing to complaint. I normally take to go food but I heard Sunday lunch buffet is also good.

We visited this restaurant following a recommendation in the China Lonely Planet guide. Although a little more expensive than your local eateries, we really fancied Indian food and it was well worth it. You definitely have your money's worth in terms of the amount of food you get and it was nice to sit outside in the cool docks square.... More

Staying in South Bund

Neighborhood Profile
South Bund
This waterfront area below the most famous section of the Huangpu River has undergone multiple phases of development that started when the Waterhouse Hotel opened its doors. Though it’s been slower to catch on than people expected, every year something new and exciting opens up and gives people a reason to keep calling the South Bund the "Next Big Thing." There are a couple of landmark hotels and restaurants of excellent quality that serve as anchors, and multiple annual events such as beer festivals, art and fashion fairs and music shows take advantage of the wide spaces, waterfront location and the tiny man-made beach to host huge crowds of people. Wandering about the newness, one can stumble upon authentic Chinese life in the stone gates of people’s residences or the street markets.
