Experience exceptional fine dining at the Shanghai destination restaurant Pelham's, presenting luxurious, modern French cuisine within a lavishly elegant setting.

Pelham's has a rich heritage. The restaurant was named after Sir Warren Pelham, a British Consul General and founder of the 1911 Shanghai Club, an exclusive gentleman's club once situated within the impressive neo-classical building that is now this Shanghai hotel's Waldorf Astoria Club. Blending classical heritage with modern sophistication, this popular Shanghai restaurant presents a luxurious dining experience, offering luxurious décor and a timeless ambiance.

With over a decade-and-half of experience in some of the best kitchens in France, The United Kingdom, and Dubai, Chef Jean-Philippe Dupas brings a fresh culinary vision to the Waldorf Astoria Shanghai's signature fine dining destination. His new menu puts premium, seasonal ingredients in the spotlight. Discover innovative and sophisticated presentations of flavorful and comforting gourmet creations using fine cuts of meat and fresh seafood. Foie Gras and Wagyu Beef Tartare are some of Chef Jean-Philippe's inspired appetizers. Memorable mains include Whole Boston Lobster and Wagyu Beef Tenderloin. Indulge in one or all of his spectacular French desserts, such as Dark Chocolate Soufflé and Fraisier Georges V. To cater to the gourmet's palate, Chef Jean-Philippe has created a 7-course Degustation Dinner Menu.

Celebrate with vintage champagnes or choose from an extensive list of 500 exquisitely showcased, fine wines and enjoy this Shanghai restaurant's lively atmosphere. A contemporary exhibition kitchen provides the central attraction to the main dining area, serving seasonal variations and a choice of diverse, delicious dishes to suit all palates.
