“Real Shanghai Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

We went to this place after reading the reviews below. We were a bit doubtful at the beginning because it was not so common to see a restaurant specially in Shanghai style . Surprisingly, it was a very good restaurant. We had fried pork dumplings for starter, absolutely tasty and authentic flavor. Then we had shrimp noodle soup and vegetable stew in casserole. The food is mild in a way but still has rich flavor. Service was a bit slow, but was good. All of our questions were answered very detail and patiently. Shanghai food has its own taste, nothing like the general spicy Chinese food. Very recommended if you want to experience some different Chinese food.

“Great Chinese Food in Quebec!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

After reading good reviews for the locals, we drove to Restaurant Shanghai - twice. We didn't know, but it is closed on Sundays and we returned on Monday night of our vacation.

The food is delicious! The restaurant is a bit of a drive from Levis or Quebec City, but like other reviewers said, it's worth the drive. The server isn't super friendly, but that's OK - we got good service and most importantly, we had good food while on vacation. We ordered mostly sauteed dishes, except at the end we ordered an extra dish based on a recommendation from the server. Chicken L'orange (the last dish that was recommended) was actually our least favorite. We liked the vegetable noodles, beef in oyster sauce, and chicken and vegetables. They were all great!

The dishes are bit pricey (compared to American Chinese) and small in portion. We're glad to have tasted Quebec's best Chinese food!

Good luck finding the restaurant - it's in business/shopping district and was hard to find.

“Shanghai - simply the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

We've been dining at the Quebec City Shanghai restaurant at least twice a month for years now. It is not located in a tourist area of town but is worth going out of one's way to eat there, and, although it is unpretentious in its decor, it still provides diners with a clean environment and white linen tablecloths. The food is consistently hot, fresh and flavorful. It is not only the best Chinese restaurant in the entire area, I dare say that it is one of the best Chinese restaurants I've eaten at - period. It was about time I gave them the praise they richly deserve.

“The best Asian restaurant in Quebec City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Although this place looks like yet another Asian restaurant, don't be fooled by appearances : it's the best Asian meal you will eat in Quebec City. The food is hot, tasty and refined, the menu is quite diversified and the servings are satisfying - not too small, not too big. You can also order different meals and split them with your friends/family, which allows you to sample many kinds of food. Try their General Tao chicken, their crispy orange beef strips and their Mu-Shu crepes, and you will never want to eat at another Asian restaurant again. The service is usually friendly and very efficient - you won't wait forever, they will supply you with water regularly and they will try their best to make your dinner enjoyable. Highly recommended !
