We have been to My Shanghai a number of times but this was the first time we had tried the Grand Buffet. We have always been extremely happy with the customer service and the variety of choice when it comes to the food. The Grand Buffet, had much more to offer, My Shanghai excelled it self. As well as some... More

I have wavered between 3 and 4 stars! I would actually like to give it 3.5. We booked the 7pm buffet for a family party of 7, including an 18 month-old baby. Our table was nicely set-out, with the high-chair in a good position. We were particularly impressed by the friendly staff who cleared plates swiftly and made suggestions for... More

I visited in the afternoon where the place was half full. Greeted by man at door who welcomed us with a big smile. Lovely food and staff were fab. Very tasty food. Give this restaurant 4 stars but know that with the extra choice on at night this would easy be raised to a 5.

The restaurant is great value however the choice isn't massive, lack of vegetarian options, however restaurant was clean, atmosphere good and staff were great too. Good for a cheap night out family, friends or couples

I took my kids here and they enjoyed it, although not many dishes here aimed at kids they found enough to eat and enjoyed the deserts. Nothing special but equally not a bad buffet restaurant.

I'll keep this short. Got there at 7pm for the Grand Buffet - 10 out of 10!! Loads of choice, all fresh, being replenished regularly. Not much more to say really. Give it a bash, I have no complaints at all!

Lots to choose from and very clean, various seafood dishes. Love the mini desserts ? Food always tastes fresh not reheated like some other buffets we have been too.

This was my first visit and I didn't know what to expect based on other experiences but it was nice, proper tables and the decor was simple but clean. It was well presented and I like the ice-cream in the individual tubs - much better than a spoon in a big tub where you don't know where it has been.... More
