Family brought me here while I was visiting. There's a fairly extensive buffet, with all of the typical offerings. The crab rangoon was especially good. We were there around 5:00, so they were constantly refilling containers with more hot, fresh food. A good meal.

Poor excuse for Chinese Cuisine. Cold, gelatinous sauces on the buffet, so heavy on the MSG my ankles swelled. If you are looking for poor quality, cheap food and plenty of it, go. Otherwise, run to Belmont!

There must be 40 or 50 selections on the lunch buffet, it includes sushi, and other appetizers such as peel and eat shrimp. All of the Asian dishes ware well prepared and the tables are constantly refilled and refreshed.

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...More
