This restaurant is situated in the Peace Hotel and has magical views of the Bund and beyond especially on a clear night. It is way upmarket from the time I first visited it in 1983. The staff were attentive and well trained. The food was good however felt it was on the expensive side ,especially the wine. The décor was old world Chinese and has been beautifully restored .

“Good buffet breakfast”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

First, let me say we only ate breakfast there and it was included with the price of our room, so I cannot comment on the price for breakfast. Breakfast was very good. It was buffet and were many dishes there to satisfy a variety of palates. There was an fresh omelet station where you could also get fried eggs. There were many different kinds of foods for the Western palate (cold cereal, Danish pastries, pancakes, French toast, bacon,sausage, a variety of fruit juices), a European palate (variety of cheeses, salmon, both smoked and with teriyaki sauce, cold meats), and a Chinese palate (steamed buns with a variety of fillings, steamed vegetables, noodles, fried rice). My favorite was the homemade yogurt. The Chinese really know how to make fresh yogurt. They also had fresh sauces to pour on the yogurt, my favorite being the raspberry sauce. Also, the variety of fresh breads was wonderful. Fresh whole grain, baguettes, croissants. Nothing seemed lacking on the buffet.

The views from the restaurant of the river and the Pudong area across the river including PearlTower and "bottle opener" tower were marvelous. Many ships were on the river every day and made for scenes that made you want to just sit and enjoy. There were free daily newspapers in both English and Chinese at the restaurant.

Service was good, with the wait people there to fill up the coffee or tea cups and take away empty plates. Everyone on the wait staff was very friendly.

A very good choice of restaurant for breakfast.

“Excellent Service”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

We went to Cathay but decided on Chinese. Ordered what others recommended, which are different from what we would have typically ordered. Were pleasantly surprised - overall taste is acceptable (real Shanghainess?) but maybe its good, just our palate is different? Our waiter, Markson was excellent. We made the mistake of ordering 2 types of shrimp and when questioned, he immediately offered to cancel one of the them and took it away without questions asked. Crispy spicy chicken is no longer on the menu. Overall service was very fast and efficient.
