Description: In July 2014, Lapis Thai together with Le Viet, Vietnamese and French cuisine, and Salmos Sky Lounge, the largest urban air garden bar, to enter 1788 Square of Shanghai. It aims to be the new landmark of Shanghai center with the 1,800 square meters’ flagship store. The mixed use of a variety of building materials and the special design creates a compromise taste of the modern atmosphere and elegant humanistic spirit. The former spacious room which could accommodate up to 1,200 people has redesigned to open compartments for 10 people’s parties or hundreds of people’s large-scale events. The outdoor dining area, swimming pool, Sky Bar, the exclusive 3D Mapping and the 7 meters large projection, etc. could overlook Shanghai's scenery. It could be the best choice for wedding, party, business entertainment.

I actually really like this place, and the staff are quite friendly. But I sat for an hour waiting for lunch today. Clearly they need more staff and a larger kitchen, as I was not the only one waiting. Fortunately the place is really nice, well located and the food is quite good. Try it on a quiet night and you should be fine!

The Food at Lapis Thai is average. It is not good and not bad. The decor is clean and nice, with only a few Thai touches here and there. But the design is not very special. The location in the American Centre is very central and convenient. If you want Thai food that is ok and you are in the central part of Shanghai then you can try Lapis Thai.

The food is awesome at Lapis thai! The reason they didnt get a perfect score from me is because at all 3 locations the service has been slow. But over all we love the food and fell it is quite authentic!
