“Funny experience”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

If only they could speak English, it would have been a great experience. Sushi was very fresh and of great variety. But the language was a big problem

“Awesome sushi!!!”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

While I was in Shanghai for a couple of months, I kept going back to Nadaman because they always served up mind-blowingly good sushi.

Sit at the counter and have a chat with the chef - he'll recommend you the freshest fish brought in that day, and how we should order it - sashimi or maybe seared. Highlights for me would be the Aburi Toro, Tamago, Seared Wagyu Sushi, Scallops - both seared and fresh. Writing this now makes me wish I could go back there right now!!

“Very nice Japanese in Shanghai”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

Very nice Japanese in Shanghai. Fresh Sushi and seafood, great Chef and decent service in the middle of Pudong at the Shangrila hotel.
A great location as it is across the road from the IFC building so great shopping and business mix.
Highly recommended if in the area.

“Great food, poor service and sad evening”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

We have been to Nadaman since we arrived in Shanghai 4 years ago and we have been considering this Japanese restaurant as the best in Shanghai for its great food and elegant service. We always have the feeling of having a great time in a refined atmosphere.

We have then been disappointed recently by the service : no tablecloth on the table, long waiting for the waiters to stop their chat and take our orders, bring our food ... finally we stood up and went to get someone to bring us desserts and the bill ... Poor service, waiters speaking together loudly, not friendly, waiter diseapparing in the next door restaurant, poor English, no manager around, too much trainees ...

We will not come back until they improve.

“Great Sushi for Lunch”
Reviewed 28 April 2013

Stopped by for sushi at lunch in April 2013 and was able to get seated without a reservation, and enjoyed some great sushi with excellent service as well. I would definitely dine here again, and the location is very convenient for business in the Pudong area of Shanghai.
