Best restaurant in Upper Township

Go here probably once a month. Tried out the Shrimp Marmora tonight. 2 thumbs up. Awesome. As always, General Tsos chicken is the best. This place is quality and is always consistent. You can't ask anything more from a restaurant. I do not know Chef Allen but he has a good reputation around town. I... read more

How on EARTH does this place have such great reviews?! I don't understand. We placed an order for pick up and were speaking normally. We weren't speaking quickly, we don't have accents or anything like that. The woman taking our order couldn't understand anything being said. Finally, someone else took the phone and took our order without any problems. I... More

This restaurant was rated tops in Marmora. While it wasn't bad, it was not a five-star. We ordered fried dumplings and an entrée, The dumplings were chewy and tasted undercooked (sort of like raw dough). The entrée was good. The service was good. The atmosphere is marginal - very crowded, very confined.

The food over all was good. Many selections to choose from. Over priced on the drinks that have no refills.

The general's chicken and island chicken both... More

As a local resident of Upper Township, I frequent this place several times a month. The food is always fresh and delicious. Never have had a bad thing from here. Chef Alan always is friendly and strikes up a conversation. Their daily lunch specials are an incredible value!!! The waitresses are wonderful too. Always enjoy our food from Island Shore.
