incredibly creative delicious, fast service - Edit

Probably the most creative vegetarian cuisine anywhere. Great well crafted taste, spicing, great upscale ambiance and service, don't know how they bring food so fast to table. In all categories - appetizers juices soups entrees. You can find lasagna and tradition Chinese on same place. Prices are mid range, higher for local budget but not too high. I had stuffed lotus root dish, chestnuts plate, tofu cream cake, Thai curry with vegetables (large serving) - with fresh pumpkins, basil, lemongrass and home made Tofu with seaweed, in yellow Thai curry, served in stone bowl so it stays bubbly hot. Best to come with friends so you can try different things. They use some egg in some dishes, majority of dishes are vegetarian. Located on fourth floor of a upscale retail building on the bund. From outside the building looks modest. Place your order via iPad. Enjoy!

Pros: location, ambiance, variety and creative cuisine

Cons: some of the dishes can be rich

Incredibly taste, fancy, splurge! - Edit

This place is pricey! 2 star Michelin rating. Worth the price if you're up for a splurge. Presentation and service is impeccable. 4 of us went for a set meal for 4, plus some extras. We all liked all dishes, and loved all but one. It cost 308 RMB each. But a super nice way to end our last day in Shanghai.

Pros: Beautiful presentation, Fabulous food! , Super service

Cons: Pricey

Fancy Restaurant - Edit

If you happen to go to The Bund, it is located on the fourth floor of the building. There are elevators on your left as you walk in. Once you get inside the restaurant you will be seated and there will be an ipad on your table,then you will choose some items and you will press on the price and it will add it to your bill. The items on the menu look bigger than what will appear on your plate so you might want to order more than one item.

Good Food, A Bit Pricey - Edit

Definitely not typical Chinese fare - but small portions and kind of pricey.

As mentioned in other reviews, the ipad menu is confusing. They have symbols that are supposed to show ingredients but I'm not sure it was consistent. One tip: when you want an item, you press on the price and that creates your order.

Also, the portion sizes are small so best to order extra.

Interesting fine dining vegetarian place - Edit

Wujie on the Bund is special in that it offers not the "normal" Chinese Vegetarian fare, but that it has many options that seem quite sophisticated, while still rooted in Chinese cuisine (not to say that Chinese cuisine is not sophisticated).

However, a few of those creations were a bit "over the top" for me. As others have mentioned, the menu on the iPad looks special and is cool, but not as practical as a simple paper menu. The good thing is that it has some small icons denoting which dishes do contain milk or eggs.

I was there with omni colleagues, who were all impressed by the specialties, and the ambiance of the restaurant. So if you are interested in a special Vegetarian experience and like to experiment a bit, then this is just the place for you.

Prices are not low, but ok for the quality offered

Pros: Special food, nice taste, Vegan options clearly visible

Cons: Prices a tad high, Some of the dishes too sophisticated

Makes a Great Date Night! - Edit

Went here with my husband (who is not vegetarian) and we both really enjoyed it. It is upscale and although expensive by Chinese standards, is not all that expensive by Western standards. The menu is interesting and delicious, and as a whole made for a really special evening!

Relaxing, Delicious, Highly Recommended! - Edit

This is a great restaurant if you'd like to have a nice vegetarian meal by the Bund. The restaurant has a smart design and is in an upscale building, but still manages to feel casual. It's a great place for a date or to treat family.

Our meal for two people was 340 RMB, including drinks, which is not cheap but also not too expensive considering the experience. We ordered four main dishes to share, rice, and fresh juice. We loved it all and felt like it was the perfect end to a day of traveling.

The menu is on an iPad, which was actually unnecessarily awkward. The menu format is one thing I would change, but still, it's manageable and you can see photos of everything. For the non-Chinese speakers, they did have quite a few people who could speak English.

Just one note on the location for those who aren't familiar with Shanghai, Zhongshan Road has different sections, so we found the restaurant by using the nearest cross street, which is Xinyong'an Road. If you're at all confused, the building, Bund 22, has a map on their website.

Pros: Delicious Food, Location, Great Atmosphere

Cons: Price
