Service - terrible - slow and few unattentive staff Food - presentation was non-existent Taste - The french would be ashamed. Canned sauce, cold snails, over cooked lemon tart, rubber chicken. I do not see how this restaurant gets good reviews unless it is for the decor. Save your money and if you are that desparate for 'western' food I... More

We arrived at 7 p.m. on a Sunday evening, walking along Jiangxi Lu and seeing how the street became smaller and darker from the high number blocks down. Through the window the restaurant had few tables occupied. However, things went up. The menu, available on the internet, is short. First courses are priced around 80 RMB, mains 100 - 200.... More

I followed the reviews and decided to give it a try. Our dinner for two turned out to be just an average, nothing really good or special.

My Fiance and I decided to keep the art deco theme of our holiday going by visiting Hamilton House for dinner. The decor is beautiful and warm which makes the perfect setting for the food. My memory is a little hazy of the evening due to the amount of espresso martini's that I consumed (a must have by the way)... More

Staying in The Bund

Neighbourhood Profile
The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai International Settlement run by the British and Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has endured over time and is now found in the five-star hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
