I had made a reservation online before I had even flown over to Shanghai, just so to secure a table outdoors. Effortless booking. This place was breathtaking! The Sassoon Warehouse where this place is located at looks nondescript but once you walk into the restaurant...More

We stopped up for a late lunch midweek in early May. Even though it was a rainy, we were not disappointed. The view is amazing to anyone visiting Shaghai for the 1st time. Adding to the view is the wonderful atmosphere of the restaurant. The...More

Canberratraveller, very glad you found your way to Kathleen's Waitan! You're right, it's not the easiest Shanghai rooftop restaurant to get to, but as you observe, it's "worth finding"! Cheers.

Location could not be better, just make sure to sit close to the riverside. The view is the greatest asset of the place. The service and the food is great, we enjoyed every course. Somewhat expensive though, which I guess the location explains.

This restaurant has wonderful view over Bund and PUDONG. It has both inside and outside options. Food is good. Quality and quantity. Waiters speak good English and very attentive. Offer a la CARTE and fixed option menu. Worth going.
