I don't understand the poor reviews, as we have always had good food and service at the Grand Shanghai. This weekend we ordered the Hunan Chicken and the Mongolian Beef which were both delicious. Good sized portions meant we had lunch for the next day...More

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...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....More
