Have been going here for years. Fantastic flavors in every dish. The challenge is to decide what to eat. Friendly service. Worth a visit

Home made chinese food! It is fresh and yummy. Sometimes they get backed up, but good food is worth the wait! Yummy guava candy in the bowl up front!

Small cozy restaurant - food is excellent. Restaurant does not have a bar but does serve a single glass of wine with the meal. Servings are very adequate and the price is reasonable.

The food here is good. Portions are not huge but are reasonable. The food is excellent though. So you can go somewhere else and eat a lot or go here and really enjoy what you eat.

Have no idea about the food because they did not honor our reservation. We arrived 5 minutes early - all tables full and none anywhere near done. Most just seated. Woman acknowledged our reservation and then walked away to take a table's order. No apology. Man at desk said they need a bigger restaurant. No apology. We walked out. I... More

this small, sparkling restaurant has the best Chinese food around. At dinner you can get a complimentary glass of wine. We love their soups, the cold sesame noodles, the specials ---and especially the friendly service by the owner.

My sister and I went here for lunch. I was disappointed to not see dumplings on the lunch specials, but the soups and rices that came with the lunch specials were both delicious. The hot and sour soup was a veggie hot and sour soup which was very good. The broth for the wonton soup lacked flavor but the entrees... More

What a find!! This very small and not terribly visible restaurant is terrific. They come wonderfully close to authentic Chinese food with very little accommodation to "American-Chinese" food so commonly encountered. It is a small place, very comfortable, friendly and happy. The service was excellent with attentive staff and the chef checking on everything. It is not expensive, the menu... More

We are "regulars" at the Shanghai Gourmet ( once a week). We haven't been disappointed with their selection. The food is always fresh and plentiful. The complimentary wine with dinner helps soften the edges of a tough day. The staff is attentive and tea and water are always filled. sometimes we haven't been able to get in on a weekend... More

The Best! They serve a variety of cuisines... Chinese/Asian/Thai. Winnie and Steve, owners, offer their customers a glass of wine, on the house, and go out of their way to make your dining experience wonderful. You can also bring your own wine/beer, etc. No corking fee. The food is ALWAYS fresh and wonderful, and a very nice presentation. Great PanThai,as... More
