Chef Ah Lack Wong and his staff serves Durham not only the typical American Chinese dishes, but also the traditional Cantonese delicacies one may find in Hong Kong or mainland China. So come and enjoy a authentic meal at Shanghai located right beside Kroger in a shopping center on Hillsborough road in Durham, North Carolina.
