M on the Bund was the first (and only, for a long period of time) international quality restaurant on the Bund, starting in 1999. Now, with nearby restaurants in 3 on the Bund, Bund 18, etc, M's no longer holds it's Bund-monopoly. But M on the Bund still has a terrace commanding a wonderful view of the Bund and Pudong and some pretty good art deco-stlye decor, which matches with the 1920's period architecture of the building it is housed in. The cuisine is more "international" than fusion, and we sometimes hear complaints that the food is not as good as it should be. The thing is - M on the Bund has been so famous for so long in Shanghai, diners expect the world from it. With very high expectations, it is easy to be disappointed. M on the Bund is not as fancy as some of the other restaurants in other Bund buildings, such as Laris and Jean-Georges, and the food and service are not quite as good as the others. Perhaps the problem is that with the tremendous fame of M's, it has been too easy for them to attract diners. The result is that they may have become a bit lax with their upkeep and service. But make no mistake about it, M on the Bund is still one of the better restaurants in Shanghai.
