My mistake was arriving at 6.30pm, the greeter warned us that the 'happy hour' buffet finished at 7pm would we like to sit in the bar & wait half an hour, so I accepted we take a table & keep an eye on the time as it was approaching my little girls bedtime, What I didn't expect was to be... More

If you like Chinese food, want to keep the cost down and don't mind a busy buffet environment, then this is the restaurant for you. The standard isn't quite up there with the best traditional 'sit down' Chinese restaurants, but it offers reasonable quality and variety (especially the grand buffet), and good value overall, particularly of you have a large...

Visited on a Saturday lunchtime. Pretty busy but still comfortable. Food varied and plentiful. Great value. Unpretentious environment and very pleasant staff.

We use this buffet restaurant quite often mostly on Sunday's as it offers lots of variety including Sunday roast options?! (Fabulous) we like it. Because .....there are loads of choices and the food is always well cooked and replenished regularly I have never seen a fully empty dish yet. It's clean and quite smart inside. Adequate and again we like... More

I visited this restaurant with my nephew and brother-in-law for the first time and it certainly lives up to expectations. The range of food available is phenomenal and it's all really tasty stuff. Very economical too at only £10.90 per person as much as you want. Highly recommended.

The food was nice with a good variety of dishes but unfortunately my daughter has had a stomach bug for the... More

You expect good Chinese food in a place called "MyShanghai" and that's what you get in this restaurant! You expect friendly staff and efficient service in a place rated four stars or more by hundreds of customers and that's what you find in this restaurant. Paddy, the manager, made our experience even better by his professionalism and friendliness. The staff... More

Slight problem with our booking which was promptly acknowledged by the Manager and handled extremely well and efficiently to our satisfaction. Some restaurants ought to attend customer training from My Shanghai as they excell in keeping the customer happy! The food ,as usual, was varied, hot and well presented. A delightful evening with wonderful helpful and cheery staff
