The salad bar is enormous so dont stuff yourself. The meats were tough and very seasoned (ie salty!!!) , really nothing to write home about. We expected a little better quality food. Service was ok but expect cramped seating. Certainly not worth a repeat visit.

If you're looking for a place to entertain a large group of business colleagues (within your own company), then I would definitely suggest bringing your team down to Latina BBQ. They have 5 stores across the city, but by far and away the largest venue is in Xujiahui at Grand Gateway.

We were there just before the October holiday with some of our Shanghai team, and we had a great time.

The all you can eat menu is a great deal. I've heard the prices have been rising with the cost of food skyrocketing in China, but when we were there it was 198 RMB per person for dinner. The sheer amount of beef, pork, chicken, seafood, salads, pastas, and desserts is incredible.

Latina offers to all meat lovers the chance to satisfy any meat needs you might have with their all you can eat.
If you are a meat lover, you might find the quality to be a little less of what you might remember from your home country or more high end Steakhouses around Shanghai, but for the price you pay, the quality is more than decent and the price for the buffet is good.
They have beers and a short wine list but that will be enough to pair with your meatfest. Avoid ordering sparkling water, which costs above 70 RMB (in most restaurants, even more expensive ones, you get the same brand for 50 or less, not even mention around 20 in the supermarket) so I consider it being a little rip off. The beers are in good price and the wine surprisingly cheap compared with water.
They have 3 locations, but I think the one in Gateway Plaza (Xujiahui) is the nicest one and they have live music sometimes. Xintiandi one is nicer area, but usually more people around. The one in Pudong (Lujiazui, in front of Shangrila Hotel) is the most calm one, and they have a nice terrace where you can enjoy your meat overlooking the TV Tower.

This place, like many in Shanghai, got a little bit too comfortable with its success in the big trend of all you can eat places. JUST OK for me at this point, but you'll definitely leave stuffed.

La Latina serves good, taste meat, but this is basically it. Margaritas and service are average. This place is located in Xintiandi and that is a real bonus but other than that, is a bit disappointing and lacks authenticity.
