Disgusting. Cold. Rancid meat. Dirty. We were told to seat ourselves. Place was empty yet every table filthy. We should have walked out then but just got into town and our hotel told us to try it out. I'm not even sure some of it wasn't actual dog food. The manager/ owner was outright ignorant. Didn't even attempt to make... More

Main course arrived cold. Ribs looked like dog food and were more fat than meat, very substandard. Dirty tables. Owner was extremely rude when we complained about the poor food and cold food. Police were called and we were able to eventually able to get $20 off our bill for 4 meals of which I ate half of mine, my... More

I eat out every meal of every day. The only time I have home cooked meals is on family reunions. I have probably eaten at 200 different Chinese places in my life. This is hands down the worst Chinese restaurant I've ever been to in terms of food. I ordered the combo plate no. 1, had one bite, and asked... More

So glad we were able to get in a lunch date when in Lethbridge last week! We love the quaint little dining room overlooking Galt Park downtown. The food is great, good price and service is always with a cheerful smile and a lot of fun! :)

Ordered Cantonese chow mein, ginger beef, and beef and broccoli. We ate a bite of each. It was horrible. We walked out with out finishing. No refund offered. Won't be going back.

We had a quick family dinner here. The service was good, we got our food fast, the advice for the children's dish was very good, they liked it and mine was also very good, I had noodles with chicken. But my husband 's dish really missed taste. He did put some salt and pepper on it, but it didn't really... More

We were staying at a hotel in the area on August 29, 2013 and arrived into town late and didn't feel like going out for dinner. The Shanghai took our order and delivered our food in less time than it would have taken us to drive there, get seated and order. The food was very good. We will be placing... More

We love their food, perhaps the best Chinese dish that we have in Lethbridge. The place is so old. I am hoping that they will soon renovate the place. It does not look clean because because interiors are so old with dark colors. If they will have an updated ambience of the restaurant everything will be great!! Their menus are... More

We've been ordering from Shanghi since the early 80's as we travel through lethbridge to BC... Why? Because my parent did of course! The food is always good; hot and ready... The staff member that helped me today was not any help at all.... As usual I called about 25 minutes before getting into town. Turns out the person didn't... More

When in Lethbridge I have always made a point of eating here and I have never been dissappointed. Same this time, it had been about 5 years since my last visit but the food quality and quantity was excellent as always. Service was friendly, fast and spot on. This restaurant has been run by the same family from this location... More
