“Slop Suey”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2011

Beware of bellyaches and a lingering bad taste in your mouth. Rated best moo shu in 2000, this restaurant has had more than a decade to fall apart. It has certainly lost its ability to create edible dishes. Our vegetable "deluxe" dish contained completely mushy veggies with a starchy, bland sauce that continued to drown the vegetables long after their overcooking. We felt we couldn't go wrong with moo shu, but these soggy pancakes were also full of overcooked veggies and egg. With hardly a taste of the desired plum sauce that makes this dish so delightful, we were left with a food-like substance that was lacking in flavor, texture, and creativity. Be sure to skip this terrible place unless you want to sample the worst of the worst in St. Louis Chinese food and have melt in your mouth broccoli

This restaurant will prepare your order exactly how you request it. The owner is always willing to prepare anything you ask for. The staff is very friendly, and the food delicious! Highly recommend this place.

“When you specify what you want, you'll get excellent food at very low cost.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2009

Shu Feng is an excellent family restaurant, a pleasant place that gives the tops in value for the meal. The water dumplings are as good as any you'll find in Wuxi or Shanghai, for example. Vegetables are the same taste as you get in Chinese food in China. If you do not specify what you want, however, you will get a fairly standard Chinese meal that is prepared for what is assumed to be American tastes - fried, breaded, with very sweet sauces. I hope they're wrong about American customer tastes. The chef is pretty good and does know how to prepare Chinese food properly. You should ask that your food be stir-fried without breading, without heavy sugary sauces, with the vegetable flavor coming through. You can also ask for the food to be prepared in the Chinese way, which is basically what is described earlier. When you ask them for this, you'll get great food (crisp and flavorful vegetables, moist meats, very good spicing, light in oils).

Great place--super owner (okay, she's a friend), but the review is still honest.
