I have really difficulty to understand how come such restaurant management policy could succeed in shanghai , we were at their biyun branch where the neighborhood is with full of new rich locals. The weather was very comfortable at this late june so we opted to sit outside. We waited 30 min net for the waiter to come and another... More

From first entry, you're overwhelmed with the amount of smoke in this bar. I'm surprised efforts haven't been made to clean up the air as it's quite serious at times. I'd go here more often if they had a a smoke free area with air purifiers. The air in Shanghai is bad enough without having to put up with this.... More

I had dinner with a few friends recently while on a trip to Shanghai. This restaurant was one of the places our hotel staff had recommended, and so, very much hungry, we set off for the Blue Marlin. Upon arriving and going inside to be seated we realised this was quite a noisy place. I'd advise they turn down the... More

This restaurant serves decent casual food: Pasta, pizza. My family likes their pork knuckles, veal with mushroom sauce. Even better than their food is their location. My kids love the playground nearby. There is nothing better watching your kids having fun, while you have a drink and/or a bite.

We only went for drinks, pool and to listen to the Pinay band who are always good. As far as places to go rate, this is a good one if you want to drink and pot some some balls into the small hours but I'm not sure I would want to dine there. It can't be faulted for what it... More

Great european food and large selection of beer on tap. The band starts around 9PM and usually put on a great show.

Since I live close to Thumbs Plaza, I've been a few times to Blue Marlin at Thumbs Plaza, only to be disappointed time over time. The drinks are watered down (especially the Tequila!) and the service is one of the worst I've seen. Not only do the service staff don't care, they are rude and not able to remember 2... More

The choices available here were pretty good. I wound up eating their version of a hunter schnitzel. I had a mushroom cram sauce which I found way too rich for my liking. It tasted great though.

We used to frequent the Lantian Lu venue mainly because of the playground next to it. Food was so-so and service was even worse. All this I can tolerate but what bugs me most is the fact that each time we ask for the official "fapiao" which is the Chinese invoice or receipt which you need for claiming expenses, you... More
