Some restaurants win people's heart by their tasty food and ingenious decoration. In the following part, I will introduce some nice west restaurants of this kind in Shanghai to you.
Ultraviolet by Paul Pairet
This restaurant only accepts booking on their website and only serves one table one day! So it's 100% tailored! On the appointed dining day, a van will take you to the restaurant which is somewhere in Shanghai, creating a mysterious atmosphere and triggers your curiosity and expectation for the food, chef and everything of the restaurant. From here you embark on the exciting and multi-sensory food adventure. After arriving at the restaurant, you find the room very silent with nothing and no one except of a table of several seats. Suddenly a huge sound utters in your ear, and then the lights are off, a dead silence. After a while a few lights shine in. You can see the table and the chef, and your first course appears...there is a story behind every course which is accompanied by a piece of music, a specific scent and some lights... dining here will provide a utterly different and impressive dining experience to you.
