Searched for sushi restaurant on the Bund. Fabulous choice. Great variety. Interesting drink selection - who would have thought olives in a Midori martini would work so well! Nice choices of sakes, shochus, Japanese whiskys, and mixed drinks. Fresh seafood with exquisite Japanese presentation. Sushi was prepared perfectly, with the right balance of fish, wasabi, and rice. Order the unagi... More

We love Sashimi and already ate a lot of it around the world (though we need to admit that we did not visit Japan yet). We frankly have to say the Sashimi we tasted in the Sun with Aqua is absolutely the best one we ever tried. As well as all the other food they are offering such as Wagyu... More

This was the best Japanese restaurant I have ever eaten at in my life. Period. And the reason I have decided to write this review is because the other reviews I have read do not do this restaurant justice at all. And this restaurant deserves WAY better. Let me start by saying that the English translation is "Sun with Aqua",... More

This is certainly one of the best Japanese restaurants in Shanghai. The quality of the dishes is excellent and the service is good. The location couldn't be much better, but you have indeed to pay for it. If you aren't willing to pay for the location but only for an excellent dining experience, you should try Shintori in the French... More

The sushi and sashimi is fine, but, not good enough to be raved about. If you want good decent Japanese food on the Bund, this is pretty much the choice. The food is on the expensive side, due to its location. If you can get a table with the view of the Lu Jia Zui, that would be nice. The... More

We had a office dinner in one of the private rooms facing the Bund. The food was abundant and really good. The Shasimi was fresh. The tempura perfect and good sizes. We also had beef which was really good cooked. The shushi was quite ok too but nothing from another world. We had beers and wine all properly served. The... More

The location is not suitable compare to price level. They told us location will close at 11 pm and last order at 10 pm but we check in at 9pm and we realized that the kitchen was already empty and closed. After we got the order, foods arrived very quickly and waiters were very stressy to let us eat. At... More

Wonderful Japanese restaurant with something for everyone. Very convenient location if you're in the Bund area. Terrific layout with a playful array of rooms and seating. We had a group and ordered a bunch of dishes to share -- sushi, hibachi, tempura -- it was all great!

The price iyou pay is quite expensive (kind of Fine Dining Japanese) but when you call to get a booking staff don't even speak English. When asked to book a table for lunch they will always tell you "sorry, no seats" which is absolutely not true as if you go there directly they always have seats available... Like the food... 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.
