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 every bit.

If you've been away from home a long time, you'll find whatever food you're missing here! Food from all around the world, you can try and have it all if you can stomach it. The quality of meat and fish is excellent. Very nice for a celebration and it was a great day out with friends. I can't really comment on the price as this was purchased using a voucher.

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 especially liked the made to order omelettes which I complemented with the "full English" including bacon, sausages, hash browns & baked beans. Heavenly. There was also a fantastic cheese board and cold cuts of meats with various chorizo type sausage. The English breakfast tea was a bit weak but the Cappuccinos were well prepared.

Unfortunately as this was a business trip and I was on a fairly tight schedule, I couldn't really linger and try a bit of everything on offer. But that was probably just as well...
