The food was great, the Amzone forest was fantasty, it was the only one in shanghai,sea tartar, crab roll, and they are doing a amazing Peruvy cevicher, service was amazing, it was Michelin 3 star serice. Tuesday was a special night, a lot of people dance at the other side, looks very nice, i will come back.
@aliveandkickinginchina thanks for that review. It certainly doesn't reflect my idea of a free market competition especially when they haven't built and offered us a better mousetrap either. Homey don't play that.
Beware Kommune's weekend "Tax" scam. If you aren't careful, you might miss it: just above the total is an ambiguous line reading "tax 12.5%". We thought this was a strange item so we inquired and were told it is a mandatory "service fee" (not really a tax then, is it...). Who in China outside of hotels and blatant tourist traps charges a service fee?--let alone 12.5%. Kommune has a nice patio for people watching, granted. But is the service really that above an beyond to warrant an extra 40-60 rmb on top of Westernized prices? Our waiter completely forgot one person's coffee and it was still never served after we reminded him. And we waited 8-10 min between the serving of the second and third person's meal so we could all eat together. And yet there was still a 12.5% service "tax" on the bill. We appreciate it was taken off after we called them on it. But come on Kommune...don't get too big for your britches...Ritz Carlton you are not. What really elevates your service beyond the myriad of other restaurants that it warrants a special tax-which you don't even have the gumption to label as a service fee? It's ironic that a restaurant that models on a communist theme should take such a capitalistic grab at customers' wallets.
For seafood this place really stands out, amazing oysters - great quality and freshness, great seafood dishes. I really like the bar, the've got happy hour early and late, and some funky drinks to go with the funky music. Different than a traditional Morton's - love it !
