Fresh, and lots of variety including house made sushi (which really makes lunch a bargain). Staff is helpful, and everything is out to be enjoyed.

Normally do not write reviews, but wanted to comment on the Sharing Hai. Recently moved to the Lakes Region from South NH, and while driving around the area to get acquainted, stumbled across the Shang Hai. Since my female companion and I are fond of Polynesian / Chines Buffets, we decided to give the place a try one evening, and were very pleased, and more so as our stops there continued. This is a nice Local Spot, away from the Touristy type places, and is Comfortable and Cozy, We have now made this place a regular stop, three to four times a month. Have frequented various Chinese / Polynesian Buffet Restaurants throughout NH and found the Shang Hai's buffet selections to be varied, tasty, good quality, reasonably priced, and the staff very pleasant and friendly. Although there is also a menu to order from if one is not in the mood for a buffet, we have always opted for the buffet, and never disappointed with the selection or the quality. Selections are also added to from time to time, something new to try, which makes it even nicer, but there are always my regular favorites. For those that indulge, there is also a full liquor license, but our favorite we share is the Scorpion Bowl : ) This is a Great Local Spot that we would recommend, and have. And No, I am not affiliated with the Shang Hai what-so-ever, but after now going there more than a dozen times, felt compelled to write a review. Long Live the Shang Hai !!!
