“Quite and experience”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We went at Sun with aqua for lunch. We did not reserve but fortunately they found places at the counter. We couldn't have better place as we were right in front of the cooks and were able to see how they prepare the dishes. It was amazing too see them cook and actually comforting. The sushis, though they were a bit large, were amazing. The meat was perfect.

“One of the best Japanese in town”
Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

This is one of the best Japanese restaurant in town... Unfortunately it is quite expensive in the evening (lunch set are worth the try). Even if the food is good it is not at the level of an average+ place in Japan :(

“Great if you're not paying”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

I come to this place a lot for company dinners. My boss loves it here. The sashimi is very good. Especially the salmon. The cooked black cod is amazing. The tempura basket is great for those who don't like sushi. None of the food is mindblowing (except for maybe the Black Cod). We always get a private room overlooking the bund, which has a nice ambiance/view. The bathroom has a heated toilet seat. Big plus.
Since I always come with my company, I don't know what kind of value for quality this place is. All I know is it's expensive and I wouldn't go if I had to pay :)

“Over hyped / Very poor”
Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

The service is charmless and poor which is inexcusable at this very high price point. The tiny sharks swimming above the 'check in' desk may be novel, but it is all downhill from there. There are three menus - the main one, 'specials' and 'seasonal' - unlike the helpful picture menus generally found in China these are garish and look like cheap motorway restaurants. They are badly set out and conceal totally ridiculous prices for Shanghai or even The Bund. Although it advertises itself as a bar and restaurants, they only have cocktails based on cassis or Midori. If you are lucky enough for the staff to visit your table to take an order you will end up with some very average food at daft prices. There are no Bund views except from private rooms. Avoid!
