This restaurant has to be the most stunning looking Chinese we have ever visited. The decor & furnishings are second to none. The restaurant was very quiet, service was slow. Starters & duck were lovely. Although the food in the main dishes was good every single dish had what I can only describe as thick grey gravy over it! Each... More

Excellent Family Birthday Meal for my Niece. One of the nicest Chinese Restaurants I have been to in the North West. Wonderful food, decoration and service.

I would say book a table in advance as it's hit and miss for if it's busy. Gets busy on match days. The food is very good and the drinks reasonable. The Chinese beers are very good, much more refreshing than a Carling... Overall value for money, good atmosphere and very clean toilets. I would recommend for a party or... More

We visited on a Sunday evening around 6.50pm, it was not particularly busy inside. The man on the meet and greet desk was exceptionally rude and waved us away to sit at one side and shouted that someone would be over to attend to us. No one came. We waited over 15 mins before being acknowledged by the man again... More

I had to review this restaurant after having a wonderful evening here yesterday. Having booked in advance as it was my husband's 50th birthday, I am so glad I decided on the Shanghai Palace. I had been told by several friends that it was a good place to try and I also knew that James Norton was singing here on... More

Enjoyed a lovely meal with my husband. Staff were attentive and the food was excellent. An improvement on my last visit where the food was average.

Tried here for the first time tonight, I thought it looked a bit tired on the outside as the plant troughs didn't have any plants in, that is a shame in summer, however we went in and had the early bird menu. The interior is massive and very impressive, the chairs are extremely comfortable so you could sit and chat... More

Opulent interior and fantastic food. Hubby and I have eaten here quite a lot and the friendliness of the staff is hit or miss. Some are friendly and exceedingly helpful but others do require training in customer services. The banquets are amazing but the drinks are very expensive. I'm basing my 5* on the quality of the food but would... More

When first entering shanghai palace there was already expectations of a good atmosphere. Then when the food was served it had great presentation and the staff were very polite. I would strongly recommend paying a visit.
