Hotels are as commonplace in Shanghai as delicious dumplings, but what sets Pudong Shangri-La, Shanghai apart from the rest is its in-house restaurants. There are six to choose from at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel, and each one serves unique, top-rate cuisine. Modern eatery Nadaman and its smaller sibling Sushi by Nadaman serve sushi, sashimi, tempura and other traditional Japanese dishes in its light-wood-filled space. Gui Hua Lou explores the range of Chinese food, from Huaiyang specialties to Shanghainese cuisine. The excellent Fook Lam Moon covers Cantonese fare in its traditional dining room with teardrop crystal chandeliers, marble floors and round tables dressed in pale yellow cloths. Yi Café, the Shanghai hotel’s all-day dining option, is popular with families for its buffet (you also can order à la carte). Choose from a long list of Western favorites — there’s pizza, pasta, a salad bar, a grill table and an ice cream bar — and also offers Indian, Chinese and Malaysian stations. For a romantic French meal, head to Jade on 36 to nosh on foie gras, lamb, fish and beef served with a side of sweeping views from the 36th floor.
