Food took 1 and a half hours to reach us despite multiple assurances it would be 20 minutes or so. Wine didn't come out for close to half an hour after the waiters were reminded 3 times. Lasagne was tragic, as was the saffron risotto. Lamb racks were decent. The charisma of the assumed boss was a valiant attempt and curving the situation but at the end of the day a great captain on a sinking ship still drowns. We won't be coming back unfortunately.
Overall, a really good experience. The staff are all really friendly and professional. The place is really quiet and zen, perfect for a momentary getaway from the bustling city stress. The facial left my skin feeling fresh, smooth and clean. Normally facials leave my skin feeling very irritated and red, but Spa Sanctuary has indeed changed my views on facials. They do not scrimp on products used and are very generous. I recommend this place to anyone who has skin problems to go for a consultation. No harm trying :)
Had the opportunity to visit this restaurant by the recommendation of one Italian friend and have to say that it is by far the best Italian restaurant I have stayed in Shanghai. The service is attentive and laid-back, very helpful when you are not familiar with the dishes and menu. Portions are big enough, tasty and the price is that, you pay for what you get ( 98 RMB for a Pizza of that quality is not expensive minding the quality and size). I was very surprised as well about the beef tenderloin ( never had one from Mongolian beef) which was served with just salt, pepper and olive oil, baked potatoes and a little salad, not sauces and no sh....the chocolate profiterole made my night and the limoncello just was the best end we could have, very very tasty. We went into the house wine for the drinks. I do not remember which wine we had ( the sommelier suggested) but the wine was pretty good so we made 2 bottles ( probably that's the reason I do not remember...). Overall and very nice night, kinda familiar feeling, casual and smooth vibe . . . Totally recommended.
Newly opened cafe close to my company, unique design and special flavours. All the staff there are very friendly and talkative. I bought 3 bags of coffee beans from them with a promotional discount, will try tmr. Have been told they will hold grand opening party next month, can't wait to attend:)
