Cafe Yum use to be the best place in qingdao who had very high quality in terms of food and service at the given price. now quality and price have separated lower quality and higher price - but very convenient if you live at the hotel but you can find much better option on the high street

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
