Really enjoyed the dinner here - very fresh sashimi, wagyu beef done perfectly, a good selection of drinks and great service. The restaurant has a great setting for a good meal and can do for a special occasion. We were sat in a corner with no view (unsure if there is any Bund-view at all) but the food presentation compensated for it.

Located on the Bund, Sun with Aqua has live sharks swimming at the entrance... it's dramatic! And the grey, Japanese-minimalist, natural rock inspired and clean wood decor at Sun with Aqua adds to the delightfully impressive atmosphere. A stream of water runs through the restaurant, ensuring that the "qi" energy flows throughout Sun with Aqua. The food, especially the sushi, at Sun with Aqua is highly rated. And the service is efficient. But, even if you don't make it to this restaurant located above D&G, you should at least pop in to have a quick look at the Aquarium bar... you may very well end up finding yourself suddenly polishing off several carafes of sake.

Food was disappointing. Very bland. Asked for chicken breast and received dark meat chicken leg. Portions tiny. Wanted spicy tuna roll, got mild. Not one good dish.

First of all this restaurant is BEAUTIFUL! The setting on the Bund is breathtaking and the interior is beautiful. We had a fantastic meal in a private room. We tried a bit of everything... Teppanyaki, sushi, tempura and it was all fantastic. Highly recommended for a great view and great meal!

I came here in July with some work colleagues, I must say I was really looking forward to the evening with all the good reviews on trip advisor. The location is excellent right on the Bund and the decoration is also very good. We sat at the teppanyaki bar though on this occasion the chef was not in the mood to put on much of a show. I was disappointed in the food, I thought the chefs used far to much oil in their cooking leaving a very oily taste in the mouth. In fact one of our colleagues complained of a sore stomach after the meal. I also thought the meal was very expensive for all of this and the service was only average. Would not bother again, there are plenty of better options in Shanghai at much better value.
