First and foremost, this by far is the first authentic Chinese restaurant that I've been to that doesn't assume that I speak their language. I'm Asian and most places will start speaking their language to me. They greeted me in English for once. My family and I love going to eat Dim Sum and this was our first time at... More

Our favorite Dim Sum Restaurant closed recently and we thought all was lost. Then we heard about Shanghai and decided to give it a try. Our first impression was that it was newer and cleaner than the other restaurant. We were seated promptly (once all our party was there) and the carts started arriving. My children were very hungry (growing... More

I love this place--the food is sensational and there are even some items I haven't seen on dim sum menus before, Yes the wait is long and the service is not great--they often understand less English than they can speak so ordering off the menu during dim sum time can be an exercise in futility. But the food is really... More

Excellent Dim Sum on Sunday mornings, although the wait can be as long as 45 minutes. Very nice selection of dishes and wait staff come by with their carts every few minutes. The staff are very friendly and make you feel welcome. They are all willing to explain what the dishes are if you're not sure! The food is served... More

I've tried couple different dimsum restaurants and Shanghai is best. Love it cuz they have sweet soft tofu, custard cake are my favorites. On weekend they r super busy. A lot of people. Sometimes i have to wait almost 30 mins. But it worth the wait. All the food are really tasty and good.

Went to this place for lunch. As it was Sunday, there so many people waiting for tables. Had to wait about 40 minutes so my appetite was gone. The food was average and so was the service. Crowded and noisy, so I was not impressed.

Get the pork buns! The pork ramen was good, but didn't blow me away however. The oozy egg lifted it though. Great atmosphere and quick service. But getting a table is the tricky part. Be prepared to wait. Tables next to us looked like they ordered the 4-6 person fried chicken. That looked good! Worth a visit, but not sure... More

I have had dim sum in San Francisco, D.C., and elsewhere, and think that Shanghai Chinese & Dim Sum in Austin is among the best. Their variety is good and quality is very good. Go there either at 11 a.m. on Saturday or Sunday (opening time), or 1:30 or so. In other words, the closer to noon, the more likely... More

We don't get dim sun very often and were happy to find this place as we were passing through Austin. We will be back.

My family and friends go for dim sum here on Sundays whenever we can justify it, and we are always very happy. We never know what we'll eat because even if they make most of the same things, it happens that we fill up and only then see some of our favorites come by. Sad. But fun. One of my... More
