I went to dinner at Yi Cafe last night and was not disappointed. I have been there many times and variety and the quality food is consistency good and lives up to the Shangri-La's reputation in Asia as a great place to eat. The staff are very attentive and always there when you need them. I would definitely recommend people... 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.

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.
