The first thing I noticed on arriving at the premises was the absence of the Foods Standards Agency hygiene score sticker which was previously displayed on the front door – a check with the FSA website after our visit confirmed that their star rating at the last inspection was a very poor 1 star out of 5. Having booked a... More

Visited here on a Sunday afternoon with my fiancé and they had a Carvery on offer as well Chinese food. Service was quick and polite. Chinese food tasted lovely and was well presented, however there are much better options in the area for a carvery. Overall we can't complain for the price, as it was only £6.90pp for lunchtime on...

It was a little while since our last visit to My Shanghai, we found the 3 tier price system had been replaced by a 2 tier price. A great choice still to be had but we felt the later tier price of £11.95 plus drinks on top was getting towards the pricier end of the market. This runs from 7pm... More

This is a eat as much as you like chinese buffet. I have been here a couple of times, its a clean place with welcoming friendly staff. Drinks are a bit pricey but not extortionate. The selection of buffet is not great but its ok, selection of deserts is about the same. Prices are average for this type of restaurant,... More

I've been a few times now and the quality and range is always good. More important is that it's consistently good. Excellent for both families and friends.

Great choice if you are starving and love Chinese (although they do have English alternatives, particularly Sunday where there's a Sunday lunch buffet style). Somewhere to take the family to keep them feeling full all day.

Still amazing, unlike some others I could name. Fresh food and plentiful. I love it here and visit quite regular. Great for families and small children too. Buffet Sunday lunches are also available, I'm yet to try these however.

Phoned up and asked if catered for gluten free and told yes. Went with family and told I could have rice or chips. I did complain and manager arranged for one small plate of chicken and veg. Other food cold not a place I would go back to

The food was pretty average for Chinese. A lot of the meat a little fatty and over cooked. Choice for kids was good and the price (£25 for 2 adults 2 kids and a round of drinks) was pretty good to. The staff were all very friendly and attentive. Kids loved the ice cream machine but other that this the... More
