“Slightly disappointing after the other restaurants in the hotel”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Food fine, staff just not quite as attentive as elsewhere in the hotel. The Malaysian noodles were excellent.

“The card system is crazy system but there are lots of great choices!”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

There is a wide assortment of asian and western choices - something for everyone. You register a card that you show at each food station and that tracks your order. At the end of the night, the size of the bill can be a surprise!

“Cupcakes to die for”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

The freshly-made cupcakes with over 20 varieties (peanut butter, nutella, chocolate, green tea, oreo cookies, marshmallows, espresso, coconut, lemon-lime etc) shouldn't be missed at The Cook at Kerry Hotel. Best cupcakes in Shanghai: moist dough, awesome filling, yummy topping. This is a MUST for every dessert lover!

“Excellent bReakfast spread”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

I love the variety of breakfast served in The Cook, giving me so much choices that I do not need to eat the same food for 10 days.
