The customers should call the cops on the owner. !!! This is the worst prepared and worst quality Chinese food ever tasted from San Fransico to New York toCALGARY. Swimming in oil..under cooked rice(how do they do that) poor quality old almost rotting veggies..sauces that smell horrible with no consistency....how can the health department not end this danger....staff is rude...

Decor is badly outdated, stinks like dirty deep fryer grease. When owner came by(long greasy hair) and asked how our meal was, he didn't like the results and a piece of his long hair was in our food. He told us this how chinesse food is suppose to taste hair and all. Not worth the air used to continue the... More

I love this place as do thousands of others. I have many friends that will travel from out of town to get food from Shanghai. The food is very good and the service has always been great. I would not always believe everything you see on social media without witnessing this in person or knowing the whole story. The food... More

A simple compaint about the food, asking for a discount or refund was outright refused. When we refued to pay, he threatened to call the cops. Who does that? I have been to MANY chinese... 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.
