The view from this restaurant is superb. You can go out to the outdoor eating area to take beautiful pictures of the Bund and the Pudong skyline. The service was excellent. The entrée I had was fine. It wasn’t so delicious that I returned during this trip, but I may return to eat here if I am in Shanghai again.

The day after Valentine's Day. Shanghai returns to normal. A lovely romantic location, beautiful views, excellent service and a menu that suits pretty much anyone. It is difficult traversing the western / Asian gap in menu's but M does it really well. The precinct is well served with great venues but this one has a real tangible feeling of class... More

Other than the view I just don't understand the fuss....food is fussy, formal and forgettable. The only strong memory I have of M on the Bund was the bill

Had a nice dinner however I had expect it to be more special . Unfortunately the signature dish lamb was not available. The steak tartar was good , as well as the suckling pig . The view on the bund is one of the main strong points , will be back in the summer to eat outside

We went for a drink on New Year's Day at M. The setting and views are incredible. Very much old world stuff. The service was a bit on the slow side. Most of the patrons had a high tea and that looked fabulous. What a wonderful afternoon even although it is not inexpensive.

The M on the Bund is a stunning restaurant. It is perched up high on top of the building overlooking the water and the Bund. The decor is beautiful & the staff very attentive. (tho a little humourless). We loved our cocktails. Dinner was a little disappointing. My husband had a beef bourguignon, which unfortunately was a deconstructed one. I... More

I have been going to this restaurant since 2005. It started out the entire high end restaurant scene in Shanghai and it was fantastic. It is now living off past laurels and charging high prices. I am no longer interested in their price/value.

A brilliant restaurant serving dishes both in the traditional style but also with a bit of a twist. Everything is done well and I couldn't recommend it more. The prices are very reasonable and to top it off the view over the Bund is great.

Staying in The Bund

Neighborhood Profile
The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai International Settlement run by the British and Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has endured over time and is now found in the five-star hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
