I go here regularly and have found the staff to be very friendly and the prices extremely reasonable. The food is always hot and is constantly topped up on the buffet, the duck is amazing as well as the crispy chilli chicken. Wide selections of deserts are available, My favourite being the crème brulee .

I went here for the second time on the 27th may and can only say it was another perfect evening. Went at 8pm for the £10.99 all you can eat evening and the service and food was spot on.lots of choice and fresh food getting put out all the time. Would recommend to anyone.

We've been coming here for years now and I have to say they've kept up the good work. Little disappointed to find the potato croquettes were not on yesterday lunchtime, but my favourite the salt and chilli wedges were (sorry to any other patrons yesterday- I pretty much ate the whole pan of them!). Cannot fault the quality of the... More

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.
