Very delicious food. Service was great. There was a delay in the food time as it was right before the game but we were able to make it to our seats with plenty of time. Huge perk also that you can buy a can of beer and bring it to your seats if you don’t finish it. Really love the food here though. More

I know it is not loved by many but we always had that pudding at Christmas back in the "olden days"! We hope you will find a way to re-invent plum/Christmas pudding by the time we return next Christmas !!! 'Have a wonderful Christmas and Happy times in 2018. Regards, Claire More

Thanksgiving Day (2:30 pm) dinner at the Saddledome, the setup was a little "interesting" as they only had 1 long lineup for buffet. However, our actual server was wonderfully attentive and there every time we needed her. The meal was good with less options than usual, but also cheaper than the usual Calgary Hitmen buffet. More

Southeast Asian | Downtown, Calgary

Had dinner at Shangri-La Sunday night with the family. During the weekend, Shangri-La Buffet now has prime rib and a couple of additional cold seafood dishes at dinner time. This is in addition to the regular Chinese, Malaysian and Indian choices. According to the owner, the prime rib is cooked low and slow. Mine was tender and juicy. All the family members said that theirs were juicy & tender as well. The quality is comparable to most steakhouse prime rib dinners in town. The good thing is that it is all-you-can-eat. You can go back for seconds and thirds. For $23, it is a heck of a great deal! There are so many dishes, you may have to go there several nights in a row to try all of them. The quality of the dishes that I tried was pretty good too. All in all a very good buffet dinner for $23. More
