Went there for a business dinner. Tried Chicken Tikka Masala, Rogan Gosht, Paneer Masala, various Naans. Was pretty good - for China 😀Not the best I have had. Right next to the water but there was construction ongoing so couldn't enjoy the view much.

During our China trip in September 2016 we had a tasty buffet dinner & lunch here. Best located on Huang Pu river having scenic views during day & night time. Views of river cruise & various towers are stunning. Food variety quality superb. Staff behavior very good. Nice place for Indian tourists in Bund area of Shanghai.

Fantastic find as we entered into G Water Front. There were cheaper Indian around but this was fantastic value for the taste though portions were small. Yes it was slightly expensive but we loved the food. Our server was very good and courteous. Dal Makhani was much better than any other restaurant back in India. If you are craving some... More

After a long walk to get here I was looking forward to a nice cold Indian beer, sadly it was not to be. The food however was as good as always. Genuine Indian flavours although not very spicy. Service was attentive without being intrusive. I have not been disappointed on the several times I have come here.

This seems to be a over hyped place. Though the food was good(no great), the service was not much to boast about. The price was pretty high. You can find far better places in Shanghai for Indian food than this one.

Staying in South Bund

Neighbourhood Profile
South Bund
This waterfront area below the most famous section of the Huangpu River has undergone multiple phases of development that started when the Waterhouse Hotel opened its doors. Though it’s been slower to catch on than people expected, every year something new and exciting opens up and gives people a reason to keep calling the South Bund the "Next Big Thing." There are a couple of landmark hotels and restaurants of excellent quality that serve as anchors, and multiple annual events such as beer festivals, art and fashion fairs and music shows take advantage of the wide spaces, waterfront location and the tiny man-made beach to host huge crowds of people. Wandering about the newness, one can stumble upon authentic Chinese life in the stone gates of people’s residences or the street markets.
