Reasonably priced, good food

Nothing really posh but nicely done out, good food at reasonable price. Lots of choice including non Chinese food. Suitable for all.

This place is pretty boring and the food is relatively bland, with a pretty poor buffey layout. If you decide to come, go at night time and get the fresh cooked food from the teriyaki bar. You will be dissapointed by the desserts here, they are by far impressive.

If you are looking for good value for money coupled with a very wide range of chinese dishes then look no further than My Shanghi. Not the best interior and probably not somewhere for a posh do but for good food and no limits on quantity coupled with excellent value for money this place is worth a visit.

This may not be to everyone's taste, but it suits me fine. This restaurant offers a buffet-style meal, at a reasonable price. Diners can help themselves to a big variety of starters, stir-fry dishes and desserts in a fast-food, but clean and comfortable environment.

We usually go to buffets on Stowell St but decided to try this as it's a lot closer. So glad we did, the staff were lovely the food tasty and plentiful. We watched the staff change dishes and remove that which had been there even slightly too long. For the price we really can't complain. We'll be back.

Went for a family members 36th birthday, large group ranging from young kids to 'older family members'. We were sat in an area just to the left as you enter and had it all to ourselves which was great! The range of food is canny and there's loads of seafood on as well as a live cooking station. I never... More

I don't normally review on Trip Advisor but felt the need to take the time to praise this buffet style restaurant. We received a very courteous welcome on arrival and waited no time to be seated. In my opinion this type of fare is very so-so, but In Shanghai surprised me somewhat. Last night (Friday) there was a very varied... More

Arrived at the restaurant amount 8:30. We were seated straight away and asked our drink orders. Myself and my partner had 2 plates of Chinese food each. Food was lovely, thoroughly enjoyed it. Puddings were also really nice. Right on our door stop and we've never been - would definitely go again and recommend. Paid £27 for 2 buffets and... More

We went at 6 so was able to take advantage of the early birds menu for £7.50. I think that it's important to keep this price in mind; £7.50 for effectively a 3 course meal. The starters were okay; plenty of choice but no prawn toast! The main meals were superb though. The sweet and sour chicken was one of... More
