Our dog training club booked here for our Christmas night out. It's the second year we've been and it was better than ever. The food is delicious and there's such a huge selection of dishes on the buffet, which is really good value for money. The staff were wonderful - they cleared the snug area for our party and allowed... More

The reason I'm writing this review is because I can't move as a result of the amount of food I've just ate . A nanna nap sofa could be a good addition . For a buffet it's good quality and tasty . I can't comment of the rice or noodles As when in a buffet I don't waste time with... More

These Eat As Much As You Like buffets can be a bad experience - this was surprisingly good! Decent quality and included the expensive ingredients (like prawns, duck etc.). They even had a tepanyaki grill cooking fresh meat and fish to order. For the health conscious there's a salad bar and some half decent sushi. Finished up with a decent... More

We recently had the pleasure of a visit to my shanghai where we took the late buffet option. This is a little more expensive than the afternoon buffet however the difference in quality and choice far outweighed the extra cost. We were overwhelmed by the freshly prepared meals, with fish and steaks being cooked on demand. There was any amount... More

We have been to this place several times for the evening buffet & the "early doors" one.The food in general is always pretty good but the evening buffet does have several things on offer that are missing in the afternoon.

I have been 3 or 4 time over the past year, and I have never been disappointed . Yes it is a buffet restaurant, but the food is always well prepared and tasty and at £6 approx for a lunch time special it is excellent value.

I just thought I would write a review having visited myshanghai for the first time in ages! I was impressed that it seems to have upped it's game since I was last there. We arrived at 7:30pm for the grand buffet (£10:50) without booking and were shown to a table within 15 mins after having drinks at the bar. The... More

We decided to try this place on a Sunday lunch time and the place is great if you have small children. One of my Grandsons doesn't eat Chinese food but there were plenty of other choices for him including a roast dinner so he was happy. the place was lovely and clean and the staff were very welcoming and efficient...
