10 family members visited for a get-together ranging in age from 8 to 70. Great selection of dishes and as we arrived for the 7pm banquet session, the food had just been put out from the kitchens. All our family members thoroughly enjoyed the experience and our food bill was just over £80 - so, fantastic value too! Will we... More

Been once and probably wont return. Found quite a lot of the food on the buffet was dry or cold. on the other hand there is variety and it is cheap but the quality was a let down.

The highlight of my trips back to my hometown is a visit to my Shanghai. Not only do I have a wide selection of foods the prices are amazing value and the food is of a very high standard.

Quality of the food is poor, drinks are overpriced. Staff were friendly until you make a complaint and don't want to know, had no empathy and couldn't of cared less about our complaint, apparently the food is checked and changed once an hour, until you sit and watch it and it isn't. Walked out only paying for the drinks £4.80... More

However do book a table if your going on a weekend because... More
