Very good for vegetarians!

WE love all the menu choices they have for vegetarians. At lunch you get a 2 course meal that includes soup and entree. And very reasonable prices. I highly recommend Shanghai Bistro. 2nd floor in the Garage. Lots of cool architecture in this building!

The service at Shanghai Bistro was so bad it almost made me want to never eat out again! It took three hours to serve dinner to our party of 4 (seated at 5:30 on a non-busy Monday night) that ordered sushi, apps and beverages. I cancelled my third glass of wine because it and our server nowhere to be seen... More

All you can eat sushi??? Not for me! Yes they have a very nice patio. If only they would kill the disco style house music with the boom boom subwoofer. As others have said the food is terrible and the service mediocre. Not bad for drinks when the live music is playing.

We used to LOVE this restaurant but apparently something has changed since last year. Last Saturday night we arrived for dinner about 5:00 and left about 7:30. The food and service was average at best. During that time only maybe eight other tables were occupied. (very odd this time of the year in Stillwater) then on Tuesday had lunch there... More

A friend and I had lunch in the outdoor patio last week. Though the patio is a good place to sit on a summer day, the food was terrible. I had eaten here several years ago and found it good but not this time. The fried rice looked and tasted like "Minute Rice." The sauce on the entree was congealed... More

One night a week this place offers all you can eat sushi. It's better than Cubs. Not the best I've had but it sure caters to my sushi cravings.
