This is truly a grand buffet. Everything one might imagine is available and the quality excellent. There are numerous staffed food preparation and cooking stations with helpful smiling people to help you with your selections. Smoked fish was superb as were many of the Dim Sum items we sampled. This place should not be missed. A bit pricy but worth... More

I was staying at the Shangri-La hotel recently and made sure that I found time for breakfast at the Yi Cafe - it was in the price of my hotel room, after all. The choice is fantastic.

I had breakfsat there and was totally disappointed. The waitresses were young and mostly trainee types...not very friendly. They are too busy clearing tables instead of giving you the Shangri-la services. The food was average and not high quality like the Park Hyatt or the Four Seasons.

Neighbourhood Profile
Lujiazui
When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline, it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are speaking of. Shanghai’s most iconic buildings are located in close proximity to Lujiazui’s elevated ring road and swanky eateries. Sky-high shopping and chic bars fill the highrises around the area. As is characteristic of a world-class financial business district, some of Shanghai’s best malls and hotels can be found in the neighborhood. While everyone on the famous Bund side of the river gazes in awe at these amazing structures, all the buildings here, as well as Lujiazui’s riverside promenade, offer great views of the historic buildings all along the Puxi side. The Lujiazui park often hosts music festivals throughout the year, and park goers can party and stroll in the shadow of some of the world’s tallest buildings.
