Fantastic buffet spread of 7 or 8 different cuisines. Lamb cooked to order. Tasty wine list. Gorgeous desserts. Drowned in seafood- crab, lobster, laungustine, shrimp, sashimi, etc. Pricey, but worth every mao.

Really enjoyed eating there the food is a bit pricy if you are on a budget but then it's worth it. They make provision for western, Japanese Chinese food etc.. Try it.

The buffet is amazing here. They have food from India, Malaysia, western food, and China. The service is excellent. Rather than having one waiter, the entire staff checked on you constantly. The food is farm to table, and everything seems very fresh. You can order the buffet or order from the menu.

This is probably one of the better buffet spreads I have had - good local food, Western selection, Indian, even South-east Asian cuisine, fantastic salad bar... we had some 10 people with different palates and dietary requirements. So we decided on the international buffet at the Cook, Kerry Hotel. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly. While the spread was good,... More

When you travel for work, breakfast is critical and the COOK does the job better than most. No matter your diet or desire, they have it....and the coffee to go is excellent!

Stayed at Kerry Hotel to attend an exhibition for a couple of days. The restaurant has diverse choices for breakfast and lunch. During breakfast you can get awesome fruit smoothies along with one of the best muesli and pastries i've had. Excellent and attentive service of the restaurant staff.

Probably better than quite a few hotel buffets, but still not great, which is more of a reflection on Shanghai Hotel buffets than anything else. Came for Chinese New Year dinner. Clearly this is very popular, as the number of guests would indicate. It`s the same old boring hotel formula of, (tasteless) Seafood, Indian, SE Asia, noodles etc... and a... More

Staying in Century Park

Neighbourhood Profile
Century Park
Shanghai residents see Pudong’s suburbs as the place that grown-ups retreat to when they’re ready to settle down and stop living in the cramped confines of a refurbished lanehouse. The areas around Century Park are some of the most desirable as they are in close proximity to the Metro Lines, granting easy access to the heart of Puxi. The park itself is a huge draw, it’s one of Shanghai’s biggest and there are sports fields tucked into one of its corners, but five-star hotels, museums and great malls make life in the Century Park area easy for the homesick foreigner. And if living in a Western bubble in China isn’t your thing, there is plenty of local flavor to be had in between the major development. Some of Lujiazui’s futurism can also be seen in buildings and sculptures throughout the neighborhood as well.
