Where is the Best Sunday brunch in Shanghai?

Just moved to Shanghai and had a disasterous brunch at the Four Seasons hotel. 456RMB (includes champagne and sevice charge), but so not worth it for the measly spread that was given. Sure, there was Veuve Cliquot champagne, but who cares when the service is inattentive and the food selection poor.

Need a new BRUNCH PLACE???

  1. Four Seasons isn't that bad! Maybe you set your expectations too high?

    Anyways, to answer your question, the Sunday Brunch at Westin wins easily.

    1. I still dream of the breakfast buffet at the Shangri-la on the Pudong side! I'm not usually a fan of buffets -- oh, but how this one changed my mind! Eastern, western, middle eastern cuisine. Fantastic juices at the juice bar -- basil celery was my favorite.

      1. We had tasty and much less expensive (though still pricey, as Western food seems to be) brunches at Azul and M on the Bund. Our reviews are in this thread:

        Both were fine, though we preferred Azul.

        1. We go to the Renaissance in Puxi for a Cantonese brunch. Good dim sum.
