This unassuming spot across the parking lot from the Alamo Drafthouse North harbors one of Austin's premier Chinese buffets. Over 60 items are submitted for your palate's approval, including zesty garlic shrimp and a hearty wonton soup that shouldn't be missed. Shanghai River also has a bountiful vegan and vegetarian buffet featuring General Tso's tofu ball, sweet and sour mushrooms, broccoli with wheat gluten, and soy ice cream.
