There was a pretty good selection -- we counted six chicken dishes, one pork, one beef, at least one breaded shrimp, plus vegetables, fried rice, noodles, egg rolls and sushi. Didn't look for soup. Also potstickers, chicken nuggets, Texas toast, fruit and self-scoop ice cream, so plenty for kids to choose from. But the sesame, general's and skewered chicken were... More

This buffet has the distinction of offering the hottest, freshest dishes available. The selection is outstanding, especially the assortment of vegetables and meats. We like the "velvet chicken'", chicken breast pieces poached and served in a white creamy, foamy sauce. Also the various fruits and fruit salads are exceptional. Highly recommend!!!

Food was not very hot on the hot bar. No service to speak of. And the food did not taste fresh. Have eaten here many times, but this was a big disappointment, very surprised.

Came here for lunch and was completely disappointed. It opens at 11am and we got there at 11:30 and everything I tried was cold to almost luke warm. The chicken entrees were tuff or dry. The taste was okay and that is why it got a 3 and my wife thought it was a good buffet except everything was cold

Disgusting food. I totally wasted my money here. I got a takeout dinner around 5 pm. My first sign sold should have been the lack of customers. I got the general tso chicken, cashew chicken, spring roll, green beans, sesame chicken, and fried rice. The best part of the meal was the spring roll and green beans. Everything else was... More

Wanted to rate a 5 but some on the chicken tasted old. The only chinese resturant we've found who serve fried bananas. The buffet was not huge but everything was good. Two buffets and one tea for Sunday lunch was less than $20.00. Service was excellent.

I hadn't been here in years but went yesterday since I was in the area. Food was really good and our waitress was awesome. I will return here in the future.

We are fairly new to the Pensacola area and found this Chinese Restaurant. The selection could be better. They did not have frog legs and the shrimp was sweet and sour. Everything I had was good so it wasn't all bad. Overall it was a good meal and Dinner was 19 dollars for 2 people.

Tried this buffet for the first time today and we loved it! It's a small buffet, but the food is very fresh, hot, and very tasty. The staff is also very nice and attentive. The only reason that im giving it 4 stars and not 5 stars is because I missed them having crab rangoons. They had rangoons, but they... More

We love eating at the Shanghai Buffet. The food is good, fresh and plentiful. Can't beat the price either!
