My mom and I went to eat lunch at Shaghai. She wanted sushi and I wanted Asian. They were able to accommodate both of us. When we arrived it was right in the middle of lunch time for the high school across the street. Even though they were really busy getting the to-go orders for the kids, they were still... More

I have been going here for lunch a few times a month for probably 20 years. It's very reasonable, and always delicious. The décor is pleasant, and the staff is efficient. Give it a try!

3 of us had dinner. Our usual meals are: walnut shrimp, lettuce wraps, and green beans. We have been eating here for about 9 years.

This was the worst Chinese food I've ever had! I ordered egg fu yong and pork lo mein to go and neither was anything like I've had it before. The egg foo yong was just a big scrambled egg patty with some bean sprouts in it, and the sauce that went on top was where the pork part came in.... More

Nice atmosphere, good food, easy to get to, and usually not crowded are among the reasons we've been going here for better than 30 years. They also do take-out.

I have been a Shanghi regular for the last 20+ years and still find each dining experience exceptional! There are other places we have been and they just can't compete for taste, quality and price!

Been there a couple times, the food is cold, lukewarm at best. The rice is cold, lumpy almost seems like it was left over from the day before. The food isn't that great. Several of our family and friends have tried it at different times, days... it's never any different. None of us will go back. I wouldn't eat anything... More

I went with a couple of friends & was pleasantly delighted. It was the lunch time crowd, but the service was prompt, my luncheon special was very, very good - sweet n sour chicken. I loved the friendliness of our server & the cashier was all smiles. Will definitely return there - might even try dinner - yes, it was... More

Had lunch at Shanghai with family. Nice atmosphere and clean for Chinese restaurant. Friendly staff, average service. Food is tasty, nothing exceptional, good portion size. The Chow Fun noodles needed some flavor. Pupu platter is good size for price. There was enough for take home leftovers.

I didn't care for the food here. They put mushrooms in the egg flower soup! The service was good as was the price. I don't think I will be coming back.
