The food served in this restaurant is fresh and full of flavour. We absolutely loved being able to eat-as-much-as-you-like from an a la carte menu and for a very fair price too! Food was fabulous and the staff were very quick with the service. The turnaround was very good and plenty of people coming and going as we sat enjoying... More

Visited with friends on a busy Friday night, service was great and the food was amazing, am never disappointed when eating at the Shanghai. Food is really good value and the staff are really friendly and accommodating.
