“Great steak + the view!”
Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

What a place! The vista is spectacular and the service impeccable. We had the Tomahawk steak: a great steak plus bone, coocked to perfection. Great service and excellent wines complete the picture.

Reviewed October 30, 2013

All is fantastic, price is higher than in other restaurants of same level in China but the view, the quality of food and service have their value.

“The best Grilled Beef in Shanghai”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Char is the restaurant that offers you the cozy environment you need to relax after the tension of the day with it's breathtaking view and the very friendly and welcoming staff willing to serve you in a very genuine way.

By far the best grilled beef (of all kind), among other surprising dishes, in Shanghai.

Try also the oysters, imported fresh at all times.

After dinner, the terrace they have is a heaven under the Shanghai sky, viewing the Huangpu river and Shanghai by night.
If you are in Shanghai, don't loose this amazing experience

“Best cocktails in town”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Visited the CHAR bar for cocktails. What a brilliant selection. We'll done Jeremy. Drinking Espresso Martini on the terrace as the sun is going down. Fantastic. Jeremy has created a new cocktail menu for all his regulars and it's was great fun testing some of them out.
