Shanghai Restaurants: 439 reviews and 749 photos


The restaurant has many glass walls looking over the garden, spacious. Interestingly, the building was built around an existing tree! The tree is covered by glass walls and comes out of the roof. it's work of japanese designer Takashi Sugimoto, his aim was to create there while dining a feeling of being surrounded by nature in all seasons, apart glass he's using stone and wood ,and as a result-light, airy, beautiful place, where you can relax while enjoying your meal
