Shanghai Chinese buffet proves to be one of the best in town

Shanghai

It’s a recommendation I get asked quite a bit, “Where do I go for a good Chinese buffet?”. Then it dawned on me, out of the 1,000+ articles I don’t think I’ve ever written a review on a Chinese buffet. I have two to recommend and the first one I’m going to cover is Shanghai. It’s probably the first Chinese buffet I can ever remember going to.

Soon I’ll take you on a magical visual tour of what you can find on the buffet line. Before all that, why is it worth it?

This used to be a ritual for my family when we all lived around the south side of town. It was a big deal to stop by here after church in our Sunday best (and I say the word best loosely). We didn’t dine out too much growing up but when we did this was one of the handful of places I could remember going to (along with Grandy’s, Hometown Buffet and Godfather’s). Back then it was relatively cheap to eat at Shanghai and years later, it still is with a sub $10 pricepoint.

At Shanghai you won’t find the deepest selection of dishes that many places offer. What they do have, they keep it warm, consistent and rarely empty. The staff does such a great job of refilling every tray when it comes close to empty. Service is one area Shanghai excels at. Of course when you step into a buffet, the quality sometimes is different than a stand alone sit down Chinese restaurant. But for a buffet, it’s one of the best in town. When it comes to any sort of Asian cuisine, I trust my mother’s instinct. After all, that’s all she was raised on. Later in her life, she would raise us kids on Shanghai and it was one place I never once threw a fit about going to. Even now, I try to stop in once every six months or so to get my fill.

  1. Are these paid ads? No way is this buffet even mentionable. The place is dirty, old, and the food generally stale and unappetizing. I’m not sure there is a good buffet in town. Maybe Lee’s on West Kellogg, but even then, buffet’s are so, I dunno, midwest. Ugh.

  2. I despise buffets. Food sits forever and gets nasty. Shanghai is the exception. They are always keeping it fresh and offer different items at dinner versus lunch. This place is the only buffet I will ever eat at.
