Jin Xuan - The Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong Ratings and Reviews
This is supposed to be a michelin star restaurant but it certainly does not meet the standard.
Upon arrival we didn't have our coats checked and we had to take them off ourselves and leave them at the table (they didn't even offer to cover them).
We ordered a bottle of wine which arrived after the first dish after we reminded the waiter twice. After the initial serving I myself had to stand up every single time to refill my own glass because nobody would come. Same for the water.
Dishes serving timing was awful, in chinese cuisine it is key to serve all food at the same time (meat, vegetables, rice) but this restaurant evidently fails in the most basic service rules.
Servers were extremely unprepared. It should suffice to say that the lady taking our order asked us what dessert we wanted to have when we were placing the appetizers and main course order (we did not request a set menu).
Another waiter brought us a set of sauces and explained that we should use them "if food is bland" (verbatim). If I go to a Michelin rated restaurant I don't expect food to be bland and it is a word no waiter should be allowed or instructed to use in such a restaurant.
Truth is the food was actually bland and disappointing. You can get much better Chinese food in any hole in the wall in Shanghai, not to mention a nice restaurant such as the one in the Peace Hotel, less pretentious and much better food.
To make things worst, we were practically kicked out of the restaurant at around 10:15 (we had 9:00pm reservations). If proper service can't be provided at those hours then don't take the reservation.
I would have been disappointed with this type of service in any restaurant, but this is unacceptable for a restaurant at the Ritz Carlton and even more unacceptable for a Michelin Star rated restaurant. Evidently Michelin is giving away stars to whoever pays for them. Shame
This was such a bad experience I even considered calling the day after to talk to a manager.
