“The view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

The view from the restaurant is excellent during lunch and dinner time.
Service is very good. The menu is limited, but all the food seems to be carefully prepared.

“Quiet and Tranquil”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

Food was a bit pricey, but I guess you are paying for the view too - which is, to say the least, spectacular. A variety of menu selections. Had a curtain between tables which gave some privacy. As what seems to be the case in all of Shanghai, once you are served you are forgotten. Though the restaurant has a dress code, the other patrons were dressed like complete slobs.

Thank you for taking the time to review Epicure on 45 in Radisson Blu Hotel Shanghai New World.

I am very pleased that you enjoyed the amazing view from our Epicure on 45 revolving restaurant. At 208 meters above the ground, we have truly spectacular 360 degree panoramic views of Shanghai. The full circuit of this amazing city takes 90 minutes to complete and we are open for lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. My sincerest apologies if some guests were not dressed appropriately. The restaurant has strict dress codes, thus I am disappointed they weren’t adhered to.

Again, thank you for your review.

Warmest regards

“Something different”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

The food is pricey but good. Service is attentive and the best time to go is at around 6pm so that you can watch the entire city beneath you lighting up.

Thank you for taking the time to review Epicure on 45 in Radisson Blu Hotel Shanghai New World.

I am very pleased that you enjoyed the experience at our Epicure on 45 revolving restaurant. You are correct; the ideal time to arrive is dusk to enjoy dinner as the restaurant rotates across the spectacular Shanghai skyline. The full circuit takes 90 minutes to complete and you will be amazed by the view from 208 meters above the ground. The restaurant showcases kitchens from Europe, China, Japan and India.

Again, thank you for your positive review.

“Delicious Food, Amazing Service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

This restaurant had amazing service, the restaurant manager was so friendly and had the chef prepare a special "indian yellow dal" for our baby who likes it a specific way. We thoroughly enjoyed the visit and the food and I highly recommend it!

“Wonderful views in revolving restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

Up on the 45th floor, the fees are fantastic in this revolving restaurant. We had a cocktail in the bar 2 floors up first and then a really delicious dinner. The restaurant has thin curtains between the tables, which make you feel that the view is all yours! Yes it is expensive, but we thoroughly enjoyed the food, the wine, the service and the view.
I only had one sour note to the evening, in that I bought a scarf in the gift shop in the lobby. I asked if it was pure silk and was told it was, but when we got back to our hotel I found a little label saying silk feel polyester. Disappointing after a wonderful evening that I was duped with an expensive polyester scarf. Would have returned it, but we left at 8am the following morning.

Thank you for taking the time to review Epicure on 45 in Radisson Blu Hotel Shanghai New World.

I am very pleased that you enjoyed your experience at our Epicure on 45 revolving restaurant. With exquisite food and wine and spectacular views across the Shanghai skyline, it is truly a beautiful place to dine. I am glad you also discovered our Sky Dome Bar on the 47th floor with equally amazing views and live music 7 days per week.

I am so sorry to learn that your purchase in the hotel shop didn’t meet your expectations. The shops are tenants and not related to the hotel; however we will address your concerns with the shop management.

Again, thank you for your review. We are looking forward to welcoming you back very soon.
