Has anyone tried the buffets in shanghai. Am thinking of going either to Yi-Cafe at Shangri-La Hotel (~300 yuan) or 金钱豹 (~238 yuan)for buffet dinner. Any one can offer any advise. Thanks.

that's so pricey. what's being served?

i went to a place called xi duo wu, at super brand mall in lujiazui. 250 and you get things like oysters, sashimi, steak. crabs and various Chinese stuff. it's excellent but if I can choose again, probably spend this amount elsewhere haha.

spend on things like xiao chi, and so on.

xin tian di, got a restaurant call ye shanghai, every weekend they have dim sum buffet at about RMB99, its good. and they serve according to how many person, cus sometimes 1 long inside got 3 or 4 pieces then u have difficulty sharing.

xlb I love the one at shanghai 老街, only rmb16 inside 1 long there are 16 xlb. value for money and tastier than most restaurant. Want higher class one the ding tai fung standard is better than our version.

Most of the toys shop I saw in SH is toys R us, I think a cheaper alternative will be to get from tao bao.

Taobao +1

Find a vendor based in Shanghai too (likewise if you are in any city, find one that is also there) your delivery time would be greatly shorten. At most 3 days wait.

Generally it is not cheap to buy electronics in Shanghai, warranty may not cover worldwide. Might get scammed too.

I believe HK is a better choice and cheaper as HK doesn't have GST.

Nonetheless if you want to hunt, I remember going into a mall like Sim Lim (all electronics) at Xujiahui.

Just above Xujiahui Subway station.

Yes. Fuzhou Road between Yunnan Zhong and Henan Zhong Roads is the place.
It is silly to get electronics in China when everybody in China tries to get their electronics stuff abroad.
