Description: Conceived by Paul Pairet for over 15 years and opened in May 2012, Ultraviolet is the first restaurant of its kind uniting food with multi-sensorial technologies in order to create a fully immersive dining experience. A single table of ten seats only. A dining room of high-end technology. A 20-course "Avant-Garde" set menu. All guests sit together. The experience unfolds as a play. Food leads. Each course is enhanced with its own taste-tailored atmosphere: lights, sounds, music, scents, projection, images and imagination... And food.

This is a unique experience for all senses! Worth every penny, you will find no better and more unique dining event in Sh and probably also not in other places of the world. Also, very personal service and a staff which make you feelmthat they are proud to work for UV!

“Amazing experience”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

We went in December 2012. It was simply an amazing night from beginning to end. The food (which is fantastic) is just a part of the whole sensurory experience. It costs alot but is well worth it. I cannot recommend Ultra Violet enough

“The Best in Shanghai!”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Local food not withstanding....this is an out of this world dining experience. Pairet has done a fanatical job of creating a purely sensual experience unlike anywhere else. You will need to break the piggy to eat there and that is if you can get a reservation. 3 months out and already full. Only restaurant sure to get Michelin *** when they get done here with their guide.

I heard about UV so many times that I was hoping not to be disappointed... Whoa! Paul Pairet and his Crew were once again way beyond all what I could have expect.

We spent an excellent evening with excellent food, amazing people in a gorgeous place...

Thanks again to all the super friendly staff !
