This is very much a busy cafe, easy style buffets and very popular with locals in the evening which is a good recommendation. Can be very noisy, I preferred the Siam Garden restaurant where you can sit outside in more peaceful surroundings. Good menu choices and good value, friendly staff, very nice food well presented.

We had a great dinner in the Yi Cafe, the signature restaurant of the Shangri-La Hotel in xi'an. There was a choice between the a la carte menu or buffet. We chose the international buffet, which had very high quality seafood or Asian fusion dishes cooked to your specification and delivered to your table. Excellent dessert selection. Full bar.

After spending 2 weeks traveling through Asia, we deemed this the best breakfast spread that we had so far. Great muffins, noodles, even sushi was great!

Excellent Buffet. My 8 year old said "Best Dinner Ever". Was a little pricey but nice to splurge on vacation.

Great variety of food. Barring the language barrier, service is great. Specially if Terry is working, just request him what you need and he trains his team to make sure your experience at the care will not be less than perfect.

My family of 5 with young kids walked into the hotel at 11pm, tired and hungry, expecting to eat at the cafe, but were told that it was past the last order. We were so frustrated but the waitress at the lobby bar was kind to offer us the option to order from the cafe menu but be seated at... More
