Li Café at Shangri-La Hotel Guilin

Li Café is the all-day dining restaurant of Shangri-La Hotel Guilin serving international and local cuisine in a buffet and a la carte dining set-up. It has a modern interior with some playful touches in the design, creating a friendly and casual dining atmosphere.

Li Café is open daily and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet, as well as a la carte dishes. Dishes are prepared in live cooking stations, with each station specializing in a cuisine. There's an Appetizers Station, Japanese Station, Indian Station, Asian Station, Western Station, Noodles Station, Salad Station, and a Desserts Station:
  • Breakfast Buffet (6:00am-10:00am)
  • Lunch Buffet (11:30am-2:00pm)
  • Dinner Buffet (6:00pm-9:30pm)
  • A la Carte Dining (6:00am to 11:30pm)


Guests staying at Shangri-La Hotel Guilin enjoy their complimentary buffet breakfast at Li Café. This includes guests who booked a room package inclusive of breakfast, as well as Golden Circle Jade members who enjoy complimentary breakfast as part of their member benefits.

In-house guests staying in a Horizon Club Room or a Suite, as well as Golden Circle Diamond members staying at the hotel, also have the option to enjoy the buffet breakfast at the restaurant. Walk-in guests are also welcome to dine at Li Café.

Majority of the breakfast items are Chinese dishes. There is a dedicated Western Station where you can find sausages, bacon, potato wedges and other American and European breakfast dishes. There's also a pastry station serving a variety of viennoiserie such as croissants and Danish pastries. There's a small station for Japanese dishes as well. Free-flowing coffee, tea and fruit juices are included in the breakfast buffet.

Li Café also serves the famous Guilin Rice Noodles (桂林米粉 / Guìlín MǐFěn) with a station dedicated only for this dish. Guests can customize their Guilin Rice Noodles with a variety of condiments available at the station. I highly recommend the original version instead of the spicy version. You can then top your noodles with peanuts and pickled cowpeas.
