Good food every time

I have lived in Georgetown for over 25 years, and Shanghai Express has been creating great Chinese food for all or most of that time. I just got back from lunch there with our office staff. I had the lemon chicken - very good, crisply fried, not greasy with a lemon sauce that is not overpowering... read more

I am an ex military kid and have lived literally around the world. When I was very young I had the privilege of living on Okinawa. We used to go to this eating Establishment called "The FBIS Club". They had the best egg rolls that I had ever tasted. Crisp through and through, never soggy and the veggies always fresh... More

Typical of most Chinese restaurants. Food was well prepared and service was more than adequate. Prices were reasonable and is a good option when cooking at home is not on your agenda. Good menu selection.

This popular mall-located Chinese restaurant has a broad menu, largely Cantonese, serving generous portions of generally good quality (on occasion overcooked). Typical family style setting--about a dozen formica top tables with wooden chairs and five cushioned booths. Service is good; prices are quite reasonable.

This place is not fancy, but the food never disappoints. Our family favorites are the Mongolian beef, cashew chicken, sesame chicken, and sichuan chicken. Ask for the hot mustard. It is fresh and taste great.

We've eaten here a bunch of times, but took a break for a while. A few weeks age we went here for lunch, and had a great meal. This is the best chinese food that you will find in the area. What we like most is that the sauces aren't overly sweet, like in some other places. Just really good... More

This is the best of the limited choices for Chinese food in Georgetown. I eat here every couple of weeks and really enjoy the food. The fried dumplings are a good appetizer. I like their soups especially the seafood hot and sour soup. For the entrees, the Twice Cooked Pork and Sesame Beef are my favorites. This is a place... More
