Inshanghai is brilliant, however it's very limited choice and should offer a lot more especially for the price!

Always a good buffet. What I.like about Inshanghi the food is always fresh, hot and continuously replenished as it is popular place. Which means no food is left for long periods. A great plus now:.... they accept credit cards

V busy here but just so wrong if you are into food. We didn't know it was Only buffet, but it was. Just So prefer quality over quantity. Would rather eat less of properly prepared food than more of cheap and low quality food. I am in the minority here though as people look happy. Whatever food camp you are... More
