We stayed at this hotel and went to the breakfast buffet. It was very nice. One evening we decided to eat the buffet and it was wonderful. There were 8 separate stations cooking western, Chinese and Indian foods. Everything was very tasty and well prepared.

While in Guilin and staying at the Shangri-La hotel, we decided to try the special Saturday evening Chinese buffet dinner popular with the locals at the hotel's Li Cafe on the ground floor. We found the place absolutely packed with locals and we would not have gotten in without our prior reservations. The buffet was very large and had not only Chinese food, but also Indian, Japanese, and Western food. We focused on the Chinese offerings. It was indeed a new experience and we had to limit ourselves to the less exotic dishes on offer. I had several platters of food I am not quite sure what it was, but I do know that I had the local beer (included with the price of the buffet), the famous Guilin rice noodles, mussels and snails, steamed buns, dried pork and beef, while my wife enjoyed some of the spicier offerings like Indian curry food. I only saw two other non Chinese couples among the hundreds of people partaking of the giant buffet in the Li Cafe of the Shangri La. All you can eat and drink for one price; that's a great deal the locals are clearly aware of.
