Takeaway

We ordered a takeaway as a treat, two mains, rice and ribs. The food was delicious all round. Everything tastes fresh. Only downside was the small portions for the price, the containers were less than half full and it cost £25.00. Would still go again because it was great quality.

I was just driving past and the decor caught my eye, never seen Shanghai palace before or even heard of it. I checked trip advisor and saw it had great reviews so on the way back me and my partner stopped by.. What a great find! There was only me and my partner there but it's a very large open... More

We decided on a Chinese at the last minute on Sunday and Shanghai Palace was the place we went to. Having not been for a few years we didn't know quite what to expect. We were all very pleasantly surprised, as the quality of all the dishes was fantastic. Given we also had a few drinks, it was good value... More

We visit the Shanghai Palace on a regular basis with our young daughter as we really like the lovely decor and relaxed atmosphere there. The Fillet Steak with Blackbean Sauce is fabulous as is the Singapore Vermicelli. Really good Crispy Aromatic Duck too. The only slight drawback is the service could be better from some of the younger staff who... More
