I attended a lunch wedding at Grand Shanghai and the food was terrible. After tasting the food there, I was thinking, what have I done to the bride and groom to deserve this!?!??!
But let us be objective.
The ambience is good, the live band gave a very good Shanghai feeling. The entire places looks posh like the 90s Shanghai style. The female singer dressed in cheongsam has very good vocal. The only drawback is if you are making video projection on the screen, the brightness of the open area makes it looks blur. But none of the wedding venue will come close giving you the shanghai feel.
The service is okay, dirty plates are cleared fast, and water is refilled promptly. The place looked well-staffed. Furhtermore, the food is divided for you, which is a good thing.
Now, the food... makes me feel like I should walk up to the sisters and demand a deduction of the ang pow money.
If you are not a close friend of the bride and groom, a $50 will suffice, because the food is actually worth less than that. I think for this wedding package, the bride and groom could've asked for such a big discount, the food quality suffered.
