Really enjoy the choice here, always busy which is a good Sign! The deep fried pork was a little chewy this time around but the noodles and beef dishes were exceptionally good. Deserts are always a little disappointing and lack choice but to be honest estate we are usually too full to attend PT anything gets other than an ice... More

I gave this 2 stars on the basis of hygiene.I've been to My Shanghai about 10 ten times over the year, and slowly but surely the hygiene in particular the carpets are a disgrace, I have mentioned this to staff on a number of occasions, but obviously fell on deaf ears. I've had no choice but to take photos of... More

Having tables close together may be fine for some people but i hate it when people are having to try to get by when i'm eating or they... More

So long as you’re out by 17:45 you qualify for the early birds, if you go on the night time you get a few more dishes – duck for one, more puddings etc. food on the whole was really good, have been to lots of Chinese buffets before, Laus, Hos and most of them are pretty similar. As long as... More
