Freshly cooked Chinese food

This is better than a buffet. The food is cooked to order. A plate comes with choice of soup, egg roll, main dish with rice. The service is excellent. Never a wait.

Enjoyed the place very much. The decoration, even though it is missing some letters in the outside name, do not hesitate and go in. L shaped place , but very comfortable and ample. We were there for Dim Sum, and it maybe is one of the best in Austin, the variety is large and the service of the ladies is... More

Went there for lunch on a Saturday Labor Day weekend. Restaurant looked old. Service was slow n took them forever to bring us some maionaise to eat with the shrimp cheese puffs which are very salty. Xiu mai wasn't good. The charxiu steam cake was bad. Stir fried noodles was salty too. Only the soup dumplings tasted ok but cold

Arriving from Houston and reading online yelp the food review. Thinking it would be better, but service is slow ,the waiter and waitress you have to keep on asking to get what you want or need. Food is ok and not hot. Unless u order from the menu. Which we had to do at the end

I have had dim sum all over the world and Shanghai is as good any. The staff was very helpful and friendly. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience for Sunday morning.

So ecstatic that we in Austin finally have quality dimsum. Yes its of course not comparable to CA dimsum but this will definitely do. We've been her several years ago and it wasn't bad but came back this past June and again in the winter and wow, it wasn't bad for Austin at all. Its very crowded especially on Sunday... More

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
