Buffets allow diners to eat as much as and whatever they want so they aren't limited to what the cooks decide to make and don't have to eat napkins if they're still hungry. Break free from culinary chains with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of buffet-style or dine-in Chinese fare at New Shanghai Buffet in Orchard Park.
The smorgasbord at New Shanghai Buffet thrills taste buds with a plethora of ingredients that creates traditional dishes and unconventional selections. Typical Chinese staples, such as fried wontons and beef stir-fried with broccoli, share space with crab legs, short-neck clams, and beef spare ribs, collaborating toward culinary greatness and spicing themselves with populist speeches by Theodore Roosevelt. Customers commit to the buffet price ($9.99–$10.99 for an adult at dinnertime; range of prices for children) to enjoy as many trips as they like to the range of recipes. Tempting dine-in dishes offer elegantly prepared alternatives, as the General Tso’s chicken arrives buffered by a battalion of broccoli ($6.95) and the house specialty roast pork lo mein ($6.25) tangles playfully with its nest of noodles.
Diners stride through alleys between covered islands filled with chafing dishes while taking in colorful murals of serene Asian landscapes. Rows of teal tables and booths fill the bright, spacious dining hall, which ensures that guests can enjoy a meal without bumping elbows with their neighbor or practice their throwing motion by tossing footballs made out of steamed dumplings across the buffet line.

A bubbling fish tank beckons diners in the doors of New Shanghai Buffet, where they kick off a culinary expedition with classic Chinese dishes that range from general tso's chicken and sweet-and-sour pork to littleneck clams and artfully crafted sushi. Covered buffet stations flaunt crab legs and barbecue spare ribs in their gleaming metal vessels, and an expansive takeout menu keeps diners from wheeling buffet tables home when the staff's back is turned. Amid a mélange of leafy plants, grand prints of Asian landscapes pair with traditional Chinese baubles to adorn the dining room's floral walls.
