Buffet gets 3.5 out of 5.
Food was good, but cafeteria style service. Cost: CNY 298 per person ($44). Your mileage may vary, our meal ticket also included access to everything below the revolving restaurant – 2 viewing platforms, amusement area, and Shanghai Municipal History Museum. Reserve ahead to get a window table in the Revolving Restaurant. This option goes from ticketing immediately up to the main viewing floor just below the restaurant, bypassing most lines. Save your ticket, as it will be checked many times. Arrive early to tour the main viewing platform prior to enjoying your meal, full revolution purportedly takes 2 hours. Drinks are self-serve, pay-as-you-go at the bar.
Before exiting the restaurant area, take advantage of the uncrowded facilities. Enjoy the journey all the way down to the museum.
