I have visited this place a fair few times now with family and work... The food is always hot and appealing, the staff is friendly and always smiling and the restaurant is always clean. I will say the drinks at the bar is a little pricey however not to take nothing away from restaurant. I would certainly recommend 'My Shanghai'... More

The buffet has a fantastic chose and the food is replaced very fast when empty. I recommend going to the grand buffet which opens at 7pm, it has an extra cost but the variety is worth it especially if your a huge fan for sweet food like me! However do book a table if your going on a weekend because... More

Me and my wife went here for a treat in the evening. They have a nice seating area if you fancy a drink before you have something to eat. Nice and clean inside. The food was very tasty and a lot to choose from. They do have a better option of food at the evening sitting. Good service and the... More

Last week, I visited for the Grand Buffet rather than the Happy Hour Buffet as I was out for a friends birthday, and if I'm honest, it wasn't as 'grand' as I expected. Firstly, I found a few (not all) of the staff members to be quite rude, when we first arrived we were made to feel unwelcome when the... More

I recently visited(25th June) and I have to say the staff were incredibly rude, we were given the impression that they didn't want us there. When entering and asking for a table as we had not booked the staff gave an unwelcoming look even though it was basically empty and spoke in a horrible tone, this got even worse when... More

I went tonight for the grand buffet and was disappointed with the customer service they gave a rude impression when they found out we did not book a table and it seemed they did not want our custom, then when ordering drinks the waitress who served us was very rude which I found was a disgrace! The food itself was... More
