Our first visit to this location of this restaurant chain - and wasn't disappointed. Sure, they squeeze in a lot of tables in a relatively small space (almost as tight as a canteen!), but it doesn't impact on the service standards. The food is of excellent quality, as is their view!

My favourite branch of this local chain. Authentic Thai food, to my taste at least, having spent many years living in Thailand. Plus a great opportunity to see some of Shanghai's wealthiest peacock their way through the OTT mall below. Great view of some of the city's finest towers, from the restaurant's terrace.

I went here solo. It looks very lavish and high end once you enter the big mall & all shiny stuff. Restaurant is also nice with nice staff. The taste was above average and decoration on food is also professional. I sat outside where you can see the big buildings...I would go again.

Was in Shanghai on business, and a coworker brought us here for lunch. Wow, we were blown away at the deliciousness of this food! Do yourself a favor and order the coconut water for a drink...they are shipped in direct! There wasn't a bad dish, try them all.

I have lived in Bangkok for a short period and I continue to crave for local food. I was happy moving back to Asia and thought Shanghai would have a lot of options. I was excited to have green curry (though I can cook I assumed the restaurant would serve better curry). It was disappointing! The curry sauce consistenxy was... More

The restaurant does not differ from any others of Simply Thai's franchise. The menu is the same: standard Thai food. The food is fine but not very special. The location of this restaurant is great however. It is in the ifc mall with a terrace towards the SWC and Jinmao Tower. Recommendable if you want to have dinner with a... More

Food is good and service is good too. Choose the outdoor dining if weather is good as it offers a different dining experience with the sky and lights from the other buildings.

I have been to other Simply Thai establishments in Shanghai many years ago and had fond memories. I took a chance with my friends at this new location and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere was pleasant and quiet, perhaps it was late at night. The service was quick. My friends thoroughly enjoyed the dishes. Prices were reasonable.

Neighbourhood Profile
When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline, it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are speaking of. Shanghai’s most iconic buildings are located in close proximity to Lujiazui’s elevated ring road and swanky eateries. Sky-high shopping and chic bars fill the highrises around the area. As is characteristic of a world-class financial business district, some of Shanghai’s best malls and hotels can be found in the neighborhood. While everyone on the famous Bund side of the river gazes in awe at these amazing structures, all the buildings here, as well as Lujiazui’s riverside promenade, offer great views of the historic buildings all along the Puxi side. The Lujiazui park often hosts music festivals throughout the year, and park goers can party and stroll in the shadow of some of the world’s tallest buildings.
