Fantastic buffet

The restaurant is busy and feels like a market, so don't go there for a quiet lunch. But if you want a large selection and great variety of food Yi Café is the place to go.

We absolutely love Yi Cafe, and it's been on our short list of favorite restaurants in Shanghai for years. The host and team and always welcoming and spot on, and the food is delightful. Our first stop is always the Indian section - delicious! We appreciate that we can invite anyone to join us for a meal at Yi Cafe,... More

As far as buffets go, this is probably the pinnacle for me. As my belly will attest, I have eaten buffets all over the world, and none has come close to beating this on variety or service. There are several stations - dessert, ice cream, chocolate fountain, salad, sushi, pasta, western gastronomy, traditional chinese and middle eastern. The quality is... More

This was highly recommended to us - so we had to go. It is a fantastic buffet. We travelled by train to and walked around the financial district before dinner. The reception, service and visit and chat from the Austrian Manager was crisp and refined. The wine was French from Alsace - excellent Pinot Blanc. We started with sushi and... More

The layout of the brunch is a plus, where there are multiple different stations with a wide variety of food available. If you prefer baguette and Italian deli meats they've got it; or a sushi/cooked seafood station, then dessert,…a far end of the restaurant has additional cooked foods more w/n the Asian region. Anyway, lots to try here and great... More

I usually run away from the buffets as I always find that the quality is rarely there. This time it is different. Seafood, Indian food, Pekin Duck, Ice Cream, everything is delicious. I strongly recommend it.

Staying in Lujiazui

Neighborhood Profile
Lujiazui
When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline, it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are speaking of. Shanghai’s most iconic buildings are located in close proximity to Lujiazui’s elevated ring road and swanky eateries. Sky-high shopping and chic bars fill the highrises around the area. As is characteristic of a world-class financial business district, some of Shanghai’s best malls and hotels can be found in the neighborhood. While everyone on the famous Bund side of the river gazes in awe at these amazing structures, all the buildings here, as well as Lujiazui’s riverside promenade, offer great views of the historic buildings all along the Puxi side. The Lujiazui park often hosts music festivals throughout the year, and park goers can party and stroll in the shadow of some of the world’s tallest buildings.
