Had breakfast for 3 days here as part of our workshop stay. Was happy to see an Indian food counter along with mind-blowing number of other options - noodles, moroccan, breads, fruits, juices etc. The indian food was quite good - the daal on the last day was as good as back in India!

We had a reservation in the Yi Cafe at the Pudong Shangri-La Hotel for new years eve. We arrived there at around 7pm and the restaurant was already very busy. We got a very nice table in a more quiet section, what we really apreciated. The Service staff was overwhelmingly friendly and the floor manager showed up to welcome us.... More

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
