My partner and I visited tonight (23.05.17). We stood to wait to be seated for 10 minutes before a member of staff pointed at the waiting area, we sat in the waiting area for a further 10 minutes being completely ignored. Another couple came in and were seated straight away and we were still ignored. Needless to say, we left... More

Looking through the window appears to be a large selection of Chinese food options. However when you are in, it is repeated in the two aisles. Massed produced food, so you get what you paid a cheap price for. They even want to charge you you 10 pounds if you don't clear your plate. At the end of the evening... More

Clean restaurant and friendly. At an eat all you can buffet you get what you pay for. The service was good, plates removed quickly and quick drink service, drinks were a good price too. Food was tasty, fresh and there was plenty of it with plenty of choice.

Decided to visit tonight due to having hungry kids with us and still being in Carlisle at half past 5 at night. Hadn't visited in about 10 years so thought we would give it a go for a quick feed. The food was just over the borderline of being ok, but definitely nothing special. Our 3 year old made the... More

today on my day trip to Carlisle I visited Shanghai Shanghai located in the city's Botchergate area for my lunch where we had a delicious Chinese buffet which consisted of chicken and sweetcorn soup, sweet and sour chicken Cantonese style with fried rice, chow mein with honey pork and ice cream for desert. Other reasons why I like this restaurant... More

Cheap Chinese 'all you can eat' buffet - the food is as you would expect, just about OK, but far from the best Chinese you can get. That said it is good value for money, just go with the right expectations.

Nice clean restaurant. Staff are friendly and helpful. Good selection of food. Only critical point would be the dessert selection is not the best compared to other similar types of eating establishments. Worth a visit

Not recommended. The food is too salty and greasy ,staff were rude and they charged our one year old baby even he hardly ate anything. I would give no stars but I don't have this choice.
