Great choice, well prepared, tantalizingly presented. Tables cleared efficiently, staff helpful and readily available.

We stayed at the hotel for three weeks for business and became routine diners at the Café. The buffet for breakfast is good and has many choices for the Eastern or Western palate. The dinner buffets were the same with many ethnic and regional choices. Obviously, they are known for their lobster and seafood buffet and they had a lot... More

Was expecting a lot from the breakfast buffet, except for the local fare the menu was pretty standard. What irked me though was the quality of the muffins - dry and very sweet. The fruits were diced to rock like proportions, felt like I was dicing the same while eating. Overall, disappointed.

The Cafe Cha at the Shangri_La Hotel provides an excellent variety for breakfast and therefore if you have an extended stay, you never have to have the same twice. But that is difficult as once tasted you will want to go back again for the same. The service too is excellent with the always friendly staff only to pleased to... More

I had breakfast lunch and dinner at Cafe Cha at least once while I was staying in the hotel. Overall, the food is very good quality, and the selection is enormous. You definitely pay for it though. A continental breakfast with an espresso and a small bottle of sparkling water will set you back around $40. All meals are served... More

This is an excellent restaurant in one of the best hotels in Beijing, China. The breakfast buffet is great and the dinner seafood buffet is a opportunity not to be missed for those who like a wide range of seafood options.

This has got to be the best breakfast in Beijing – extensive choices and if you don’t get something you like here, you must be extremely fussy – their pastries are to die for and we just could not get enough! Sitting enjoying your meal overlooking the garden is an added treat – don’t miss out on this one!

I enjoyed breakfast which was included in rate, but would skip for other meals as it is so expensive. Great hot pot place down the street for 1/4 the price.

Restaurant smells like old fish. Pizza tastes like it was cooked in a dishwasher. Soggy, nasty, gross.
