The experience was a beautiful one. The staff at the time of our meal were outstanding. Well done guys and girls I hope this review helps .

Dinner during my shangri-la stay, it is said this is the best buffet in Shanghai. Agree with that! Sashimi and fruits are very fresh. Indian and Thailand cuisine, barbecue pork are great. Dessert is OK.

This restaurant was recommended by a colleague and was a lovely re-introduction to the finer things in life after working abroad in the middle of nowhere for 6 weeks.. Shellfish and pasta in a tomato sauce was enjoyed with a glass of merlot at a reasonable price for Shanghai.. (and a complimentary copy of China Daily) All while being observed... More

Our stay at the Pudong Shangri-La hotel was only enhanced by the Yi Cafe. We arrived at night and had dinner there. Our guide told us this would be the best meal of our trip and he was right. An absolutely endless selection of food was waiting for us. Both eastern and western varieties were available. And I had no... More

The Shangrila yi cafe may not have the entertainment of the Westin, nor the cavernous central area which creates a relaxed environment, but if it's just the food you're after, then I don't think the Shangrila yi cafe can be beaten. The choice is unbelievable, but the quality remains amazing. The fish section is heavenly, but for me it just... More

The place has got both quantity and quality in terms of food. Love the teppanyaki station and the grills section! Desserts are amazing as well. A little pricey but it is worth every penny if you have a good appetite.
