Founded by chef Paul Pairet, Ultraviolet serves what is described as "Psycho-Tasting". Guests are welcomed into a room with a 10-seater table, where audio and visual equipment accompany the 20-course meal on offer, so that all the five senses are stimulated at once.


The Chinese like to eat, and Shanghai is a city where this characteristic national trait finds its ultimate reflection. From chic and elegant international restaurants to local dumpling joints, Shanghai is where you can easily eat your way around the globe. Whether you like your portions exquisitely presented or prefer a tangled mountain of noodles, you will find it all here. A note on tipping: it’s officially prohibited in China. While it has become usual to tip tour guides on organised outings, it is not common to tip taxi drivers or the staff of bars and restaurants.
