We spent a lot of time in Shanghai 5 years ago, which coincided with when the Waldorf first opened here - so we stayed each time. We loved the Grand Brasserie food and service. So it was with some trepidation that we returned recently during a stay in Shanghai. Nothing's changed -- food, service, comfort -- it's all still AMAZING.

I stayed 3 nights at the Waldorf here and breakfasts were included. Very nice buffet spread and other foods as side orders that can be ordered separately. Foods were always of high quality. Very attentive and friendly service too. The waiter and waitress were trained well so they even remembered what I ordered yesterday. Amazing place.

Breakfast at the Waldorf Astoria Shanghai was above and beyond my expectations! First, the entry from the old wing with the narrow oldies-looking meeting room opened up to a wide, bright high-ceilinged two floored restaurant was elegant & dramatic! Second, the hot dish was freshly prepared in addition to abundance of the buffet. Chinese tea quality was exceptional as a... More

The food, drink and hospitality of the venue are not in question - this is a relaxed and friendly dining hall which provides a wonderful selection of food and drink promptly served by professional and courteous staff. My main issue with the arrangement is that this grand space becomes the focal point for tourists above to hang around the balcony... More

I booked a room for my parents in Waldorf to celebrate my parents' 30th wedding anniversary and I decided to choose Grand Brasserie for their dinner. I made a call to the restaurant and it was answered by Maggie. After sharing my concern about my budget, she recommended me a very good deal on App 'Enjoy'. In addition, I wanted... More

We had to send back the bread which was rock solid and the fries which were dry and tasted like they had been kept for days and refried. Just really dishonest for the prices they charge. My husband had the bouillabaisse which he said was the worst he had ever tasted. Just horrible, horrible, horrible.

The Brasserie is a wonderful area set in a area which in its heyday could have easily been a grand ballroom with oval ceilings with chandeliers and marbled floors. Adjoining the restaurant is a garden with water feature waterfall. Breakfast is a hearty buffet while lunch and dinner is a la carte.. Sunday is the famous buffet brunch. The staff... More

After 3 weeks in China and many luxury hotels, the Grand Brasserie breakfast buffet was truly the best. Everything from congee to croissants -- the buffet covers it all, including excellent coffee. We also had a set menu dinner one evening. The food was excellent, the service is a bit slow, but if you are not in a hurry, an... 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.
