Man, what a dinner! Sure, there is nothing new about M on the Bund, in fact it looks a little bit passe in between star-rated locations left and right on the Bund-but that's actually why it is so good. The terrace is still great for a summer night's dinner. The food is still fine, with some little flaws here and there. The service is still quick, efficient and on the verge to arrogant. It is still packed with expats, tourists and well heeled Chinese. The wine list is still extensive, its arrangement smart. It is still a fine place for people watching. It's the package that makes it - and that one is almost unbeatable.
M on the Bund serves primarily Continental cuisine, though some dishes are from North Africa, India and the Middle East-"authentic" dishes, not fusion food. M on the Bund was the first independent, international-class Western restaurant in Shanghai when it opened in 1999 located in the former Nissin Shipping Building from the 1920s. It combines outstanding service, a lovely interior, great food, an excellent wine list - plus stunning views of the Bund and Pudong's space-age skyline. Leave room for M's signature dessert, Pavlova (a white meringue pie with fruit and whipped cream), or one of the delicious dessert specials.
