Average (that's being kind) Chinese American food. I will forego the descriptive adjectives I may generally pepper my experience with as the restaurant also decided to forego the flavor. I had the Lemon Chicken, which was basically heavily breaded chicken with a lemon "gel" on top of it. My Husband had the Egg Foo Young (which was neither Egg nor... More

Four of us met for dinner here last night. My wife and I shared the appetizer tray and shared the Mango Chicken. Both items were prepared correctly and were quite tasty. The people we met had the egg rolls as an appetizer and shared the 1/2 roasted duck and Chicken with Vegetable Noodles. They both said their choices were very... More

Seven others and I had a business lunch at Grand Shanghai. We all chose the buffet, which had a nice assortment of dishes, including some unusual ones. The food was quite tasty and the interior of the restaurant is pleasant. Typical dishes included sweet and sour chicken, General Tso's chicken, beef with string beans, egg rolls, lo mein, and an...

Grand Shanghai is a good option for Chinese food in St. Paul. They have a wide variety of items on the menu and everything I've had here has been good. They also have a decent buffet at a great price. Is it the greatest Chinese food in the history of Chinese food? No. But it's a good local option that... More

Most of the people seemed to be from the area and perhaps slightly older. Therefore, the food is not spiced and certainly not hot. I ordered Kung Pau chicken and did not see evidence of one single chili in the dish. It was very bland. they brought me some spice mix , but that defeats the idea of the dish.... More

The food was good but not amazing. I did take out and it arrived on time. The restaurant itself is not great for eating in.

We have been to Grand Shanghai three or four times now, trying different menu items each visit. The food has always been very tasty, with fresh cooked vegetables and tender meats in flavorful sauces. The service was quick and friendly. We have always had left overs for lunch the next day from our dinner entrees. Most of the entrees are... More

we've been eating at Grand Shanghai for at least ten years now, and we never think twice about going back. The service is always personal and friendly, and the food is consistently very good. We enjoy the all-you-can-eat luncheon buffet as much as sharing family-style in the evening. You won't be disappointed.

Grand Shanghai will do in a pinch, when I really have a craving for Chinese. It is run of the mill midwestern quality Chinese food. Having grown up in NY I've come to accept it, although there are definitely better options in the Twin Cities. Bottom line if you are in the neighborhood it may do, but I wouldn't make... More

This is our favorite Asian spot in the Twin Cities. Conveniently located on Grand Ave in St. Paul, this is authentic Chinese cuisine. Most times we have gone the majority of diners are of Asian background which usually tells you a lot about an eating establishment. I am partial to the Mongolian Beef but their Dim Sum on the weekends... More
