There are six restaurants with five different cuisines at Pudong Shangri-La, Shanghai. Jade on 36 is the hotel’s Western fine-dining restaurant, and its 36th-floor location offers sweeping views of the skyline. Children under 12 are not allowed at Jade, so the restaurant has an upscale, adult atmosphere. Be sure to try the steamed sea bass cooked with Lapsang Souchong tea and served in a red radish and cauliflower lemon emulsion. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s Cantonese restaurant, Fook Lam Moon, also offers views of the Bund, alongside contemporary food from Southern China, like baked lobster in soup and fried rice with diced chicken and octopus in an abalone sauce. Gui Hua Lou, the luxury hotel’s other Chinese restaurant, serves Huaiyang, Cantonese, Shanghainese and Sichuanese cuisines in an upscale setting. Look for its braised pork belly in Shanghai sweet sauce, braised bean curd with ham and vegetables, and sweet and sour prawns.
Nadaman and the 32-seat spot Sushi by Nadaman offer you a wide selection of traditional Japanese cuisine, including barbecued eel, tempura and, of course, sushi and sashimi. If you have kids, the all-day dining venue Yi Café is your best bet. The restaurant’s enormous buffet offers a huge array of entrées — pizzas, pastas, a grill station, salad bar, dim sum, Malaysian hawker stalls and Indian food — plus an out-of-this-world dessert station, where you can make your own sundae bar.
