“Chinese buffet”
Review of Shang Hai

Shang Hai

Cuisines: Chinese

Reviewed 4 August 2016

Went in at 3pm and the buffet was very sparse. The food was obviously overcooked and warmed over for hours. Soon more people came in and they hurried to restock the buffet. The taste wasn't so bad but the first several minutes it wasn't good.

2.5 stars. Came for lunch and the buffet. The staff was nice, but the food was kind of bland and greasy. I'm not sure how this place got 4 stars.

I asked my son whar he'd like to eat and said he wanted a buffet. I had driven past Shang Hair many times and decided today was the day. It is a smaller buffet than the other Chinese buffet in a neighboring town but was pleased when I saw the selections. Crab Rangoon's were Excellent. Won Ton soup flavorful. General Zhao chicken also tasty. We both enjoyed this venue and will be back.

If you're looking for really good chinese food in the Lakes Region, look no further than the Shang Hai. They make the best Crab Rangoon and Peking Ravioli around! Their chicken wings are huge! They have a nice buffet available or you can order from their menu. This is a family owned restaurant that cares about keeping their customers coming back again and again.

Dinner off the menu instead of the buffet. Food was fresh, hot and plentiful. Brought home doggie bag and had leftovers the following evening. Food was just as tasty. They served a pot of Black Tea shortly after we sat down. I believe this is only served if you order off the menu. What a nice touch. Waitstaff very attentive.
