We were in the mood for a Chinese takeaway so I turned to my trusty friend TripAdvisor and selected Shanghai Express based on the rating and reviews. We were not disappointed, the staff were super friendly and helpful and the food was delicious, especially the satay chicken, sweet &... More

Fab family meal for one of the kids' birthdays. Shanghai ribs were an excellent starter. Won tons were crispy and tasted great. Satay chicken was very tasty. As was my wife's choice of king prawn chow mein. They even accommodated my daughters request for egg fried rice and seaweed. Only down side was the loos need some work !

Arguably the best Chinese restaurant in the south of England. The staff were exceptional. The food was amazing. Ambience was warm and friendly.

I visited this restaurant with my partner during a recent stay in Newquay, mainly based on the reviews I'd read on trip advisor. Although it is a small and slightly tired looking restaurant, the food was delicious and very reasonable priced. The egg fried rice was the best I'd ever eaten and the mains were also delicious. The staff were... More

We came to this restaurant on Tuesday night from a recommendation from the taxi company! As we are not local, and are from the North, we didn't quite know what to expect from a southern Chinese... We was greeted friendly by all the staff, and the chef even came out to speak to us at the end of the meal.... More

We called in again this July for the 3rd year running. The food , prices and service are second to none. I would totally recommend this restaurant. The food is great and the owner always makes a point of coming round personally to ensure you were fully satisfied. I love this place and hope he never sells up as it... More
