The breakfasts served at this restaurant are excellent and the choices mind boggling. Know what you want to eat before you go in or you will spend hours sampling the delights. One negative on the restaurant is that it can be difficult to get a cup of coffee. I have on a number of occasions walked around trying to find... More

I have eaten here a number of times but never written a full review. Located in the Shangri-la hotel it is usually very crowded. There are a number of stations throughout the restaurant which provide a number of selections to choose from. Breakfast has multiple choices of both Asian and, to a lesser extent, Western items. There are ample bread... More

I was disappointed by the menu a la carte, but I gave it another try for the buffet. Although the price is very good, the food is not really matching the level of a 5 star hotel. The lamb was very dry and kinda cold. The spicy chicken was also very dry and hard. The Italian corner when I asked... More

We arrived at 9.15, a bit late for the buffet that closes at 9.30. To be honest, given the amount of food still on the tables , we were expecting to let it be opened for a while more. The restaurant way empty, during the mid autumn festival. We have then asked for the a la carte menu. Quesadilla, was... More

This is the buffet restaurant at shangri la hotel. Probably best one in town, you get strak, seafood, korean, pasta, japanese... But individually, you can find better quality and value. Just feel like pigging out? Cant beat Cafe Yum

Beautiful interior decoration and as always Shangri-La has some of the best service in Qingdao. The buffet is fresh and with great taste. It has clear focus on asian dishes than I have seen in most other 5-star hotel buffets, which sometimes can leave me wishing for a slice of pizza or similar. Good selection of korean and asian food,... More

Cafe Yum is definitly the best place to go in Qingdao for western food. The restaurant is nowerdays in the first floor of Shangrila Hotel which makes it a little bit dark in there. Who do not mind the bad location will find the best buffet in town. There is a great sushi and sashimi area, tons of different cheeses,... More
