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

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 having been stopping in here for a couple of years now. Lunch specials are a great value. Regular menu items are varied and cover the typical Chinese favorites. The staff have always been attentive including family visits and solo times at lunch. A buffet is served at lunch on Sunday. Check the hours. Carryout is available. Really have not... More

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

This is the only Chinese place we go to for takeout, food is consistently good, no matter what we have. Have never eaten-in, so can't comment on table service, etc., but eat-in seems to do a good business also. Front desk staff always very friendly, even when busy with customers and phone ringing. They always acknowledge me when I walk... More

There's a nice variety on the main menu. I've hear good things about the soups. I've had the wonton and liked it. For a cup, it's only $1.10 to add, so it's not unreasonably priced. The service is quick. This is not a fancy place, but we go here for the food not the setting. The food is great!
