Char serves a great selection of beef cuts from Australia, from a European perspective of meat, they are qualified and cooked to perfection. Decent wine list which offers reasonable priced wine from Europe and Australia. The most impressive thing, I got to choose the knife which was called "a weapon" by my wait staff, dinner also accompanies with wide options of sea salts and mustard. Guess this is the reason why Char is such a popular eatery in Shanghai. And don't forget the view is outstanding, so make sure you will book the window table in advance. I will be back soon
I am writing while still in the restaurant. Not sure if service or preoccupied staff is worst but probably soggy fish and breaded sausage edged out waiters who giggled behind counter as they ignored my hand in the air. They refused to offer fresh lemon but insisted the cuts from hours earlier was going to it. Take or leave it. Had to ask three times for water and some waiters only leave counter to collect payments. Sad sad service.
Is this No.1 restaurant in Shanghai? Crazy.....yes the food concept is about healthy express, but I don't feel they were cooked well, hot burger was served in cold, salad lack of dressing - when I asked for more they told me there's an extra cost. Service staff doesn't speak English, maybe they hired so many trainees? All in all, it just worth for one time visit.
Cheap wine with up marked price, service is inattentive and I have to standup to call for a waiter. Yes, the overall wine list looks like a good deal but don't forget how much is a basic wine cost in Europe. If you are a neighbor of this place then go, don't go there if you simply looking for a place for having fun.
I would give them zero stars if I could.The hard drive on my Lenovo computer was full. We brought our computer as well as a new larger hard drive to Ray at Central Computer on a Monday.We told him that we were in a hurry, and he promised that it would be finished by Friday of that week, and he would keep us updated on his progress. We contacted him Friday, and it seemed as if he was just starting to work on it that day. He told us he needed to replace the power source, but he would call us by the end of the day and let us know that it was finished! Did we get a call? No. We called several times the following week, and Ray said that he found another problem, but everything would definitely be completed by the following Friday. He promised to update us on his progress, and let us know if there would be a problem completing our project by then. We called mid afternoon on Friday, and Ray had left for the day. We spoke with his boss, who assured us that all was fine. My wife went to pick up the computer. The new hard drive had not been installed, and they had installed a corrupted version of Vista on the machine, so that we couldn't load any data on it ourselves. What a waste of time and money! If only they had been honest about their progress. I have taken my computer to another tech company, where I hope that I will have better luck. I felt that I needed to warn others about Buy Now .
