Very, very wide spread of breakfast and lunch options. The candy, chocolate and dessert bar was so tempting, even a non sweet tooth could not resist its selection.

Luxury dinning environment and guests are qualified so dinning environment is quirt as well. Chefs come from different country. So I can eat authentic food in here. Attendant are very friendly and hospitality, able to help us taking food and replace dirty plate, even the plate still have food which we don’t like.

It is pricey, and it is very good. I have been there numerous times and every time it was consistent. Just make sure you bring a good appetite and some friends to share the experience with. I love it for the combination of sampling so many different things and at the same time get freshly prepared food which doesn't sit... More

Yi Cafe had an amazing selection of food from various cuisines all over the world. The desserts especially were great. The pricing is on the higher side but it is Shangrila, so it is quite expected.

Yi Cafe, a great buffet with a fantastic choice, there is something for everyone here; Thai, Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Italian. You won't be disappointed. The hotel decoration also adds immensely to the experience as does the friendly and attentive manager and his staff. One of the best buffets I've been to, actually the other close contenders have also been Shangri-La... More

Top quality buffet choice, one of the best for the price in China. The choice was outstanding and plentiful. From the cold seafood and sushi to the main courses everything was delicious. Often the main courses at buffets can disappoint and be bland and overcooked, but here everything was excellent. The curries, both Indian, Malaysia and Lebanese were fabulous. Highly... More

I had buffet lunch here. This reataurant had many kinds of Chinese food with traditional design. My husband love Japanese food, luckily he found Japan corner - sushi bar. The food was delicous, but it was actually not my taste. I just could eat seafood, cake and some dessert.

All the food stations are well placed. I love the Indian food section, the Chef is always smiling and alwaya a step... More

We used to frequent Yi Cafe years ago but stopped when they changed chefs and especially pastry went dramatically downhill. Recently we were told that there was a New look and general improvement so we went back. I am happy to see the fresh look, it's more fun and quirky, food was good and desserts and pastries excellent. Kids love... More
