“Definitely the best chinese food in Windsor/Essex County!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

I would highly recommend this restaurant if you like excellent food, and the friendly and welcoming staff inquires if you like MSG. Our whole family loves to come to this restaurant for many years to celebtate our birthday's, and any other time we feel like eating Chinese food. My husband loves the sweet and sour soup, and everything else he has tried. I have always enjoyed every yummy morsel I have ever eaten!!!!! I don't ever remember anyone saying that they didn't like something there.

“Good Chinese breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

We have very traditional Chinese breakfast there.
The north one.
I like sweet soy milk and tofu.
However, don't like them asking for tips. I always give 10% if I have good service.

“Best Chinese out there!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

My family keeps coming back to Shin Shin, time after time, because they never let us down. Our favourites are the won ton soup (which is just so fresh and flavourful), the chicken fried rice, cripsy beef, the deep fried mixed seafood, shin shin special noodles, and the spicy garlic green beans, among others. The staff are always so polite and attentive. If you have not tried it, it is a must!

“Still the Best - We've Been Going > 20 Years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

We live across the Detroit River (in Michigan) but we happily tunnel across to Canada simply to get OUR FAVORITE Chinese food ANYWHERE!

The chicken with dried hot pepper is the BEST thing on the menu.

The green beans are a close second (don't miss them!)

The steamed stingy buns are yummy.

Best won ton soup I have ever had.

Great service, always kind and attentive.

This is the #1 choice of my daughter, mason, my wife, and myself!!!

YUM!!!!

“Many family dinners here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

My family use to frequent Shin Shin and I took my wife there on our first date. Specialties we enjoy is their crispy beef, shin shin shrimp lightly coated and fried with shells, and fried buns.
Recent visits have been for takeout, I haven't ate in the restaurant for some time, but still looks that same. The only issue is parking, only a few spots in the back or if you're lucky find a spot at the front.
Prices are reasonable and the food has always been good, try to order from their seafood selection
