If you would like to pay $40 plus/person for a Hometown style buffet, I more than welcome you to come here.

I will choose KFC or Hometown Buffet next time before, EVER, considering returning to Shanghai Red's.

Shanghai's food and dessert selections have minimized in size by 50%, their price has increased by at least 5%/ year and the food quality/selection is meager by 50-60%.

I've been gong to Shanghai Red's for over 10 years and I can guarantee my review.



One star feels like way too mu...

One star feels like way too much for this place, i wish i could give it a zero. Everything was horrible at this place, food was greasy and tasteless. Waiter was rude and had an attitude. When he brought out the bread and butter plates, 5 out of 8 plates were dirty (as in unwashed dirty). When my husband told him that the plates are dirty while he was passing them around, he simply started wiping them with the towel he had in his hand, so we had to insist that he brings out washed ones. We ordered drinks and a cup of water for my son, well the water he brought out was GREEN, and his responce to our frustration was "oh, i think the water is dirty". And the grand finale was the hair in my food! We left the place hungry and nauseated.

We were quoted a price of $30 on the web, as well as the phone. When we arrived the price was now $31. The girl in the front was not very friendly and we were standing right by the desserts and didn't tell us when our name was called. The view was beautiful. The waiter was quick,,,but kept forgetting things. First thing we got was the shrimp,,,it was wonderful. From that point on it went downhill. The scrambled eggs were terribly runny, red potatoes were not cooked well enough. No avocado for the omelette,,,just guacamole,,,,chips were not crunchy,,,stale. The refried beans were really runny also. I must say the desserts were good. The bill came and there was a charge of $2.95 for a diet coke,,,we argued about that one and it was removed from the bill. When we left there was no ""thank you"",,,no ""goodbye"",,,nor ""have a nice day"",,,nothing. We said have a nice day to the two girls,,,,but they said nothing back. This was a belated Mother's Day,,,,it wasn't very nice. Would never go there again.,,,,there are much better restaurants then this one.

The view and chocolate fountain to die for

This restaurant has the most romantic and fantastic views. The name is misleading, you think that you will be eating oriental food but there isn't any. The food off the menu is so so, nothing to jump up and down about. The service ok. The hostesses were friendly and well groomed.

The buffet is outstanding. Alot of choices. The chocolate fountain is to die for except the cake was very dry that you dip. The fruit was fresh. The champagne outstanding, not sure of the brand and am not a champagne person but theirs is outstanding.

Had a special event planned also and the catering person was very friendly and followed through with all the details that I wanted for the event.

Parking so so. They share with everyone else so with an event you have to tell your guests to get there early or the parking lot will be full and you won't be able to attend. That is weak there.

Over all I would return and enjoy the view...

The view at Shanghai Red's is amazing and the food is good.

I've been to Shanghai Red's in Marina before and recently I came here with my family to celebrate my grandma and her twin sister's birthdays. I mostly focused on the crab legs as I usually do :-). They were pretty good but the coffee was a little bit too sweet for my taste.

Great Buffet

What a spread. Quite a variety of foods even for a vegetarian. Of course I started with the chocolate mousse cake and champagne. I thoroughly enjoyed the view if the marina and we were surrounded by a younger, professional crowd. Only drawback was the experience was pricey

Best Sunday Brunch

Sunday brunch at Shanghai Red's is amazing! It is all you can eat buffet style and I can't think of a food that isn't represented. Unlike many buffets the food is the quality you would expect to be served in a fine restaurant. Champagne is included and the wait staff keeps it flowing! The restaurant is beautiful and has an especially nice view if you sit outside on the water.

It is nice to go for a stroll through ""Fisherman's Village"" after you leave the restaurant.
