I hate to say it because they are so kind and the food is tasty but I get a major head ache every time I eat there. I do wish it wasn't true I love their hot and sour soup but the migraine isn't worth it perhaps they use MSG I am not sure.

We have lived up here neatly 24 years and we LOVE this place. Great food, nice people who run it and we enjoy every item. But their sesame chicken is wonderful. We have tried other Chinese places that have come and gone, others that hang around and new ones that come in. This is the best

I have been going to Shanghai for over 20 years and they have always been the best. Their food is super fresh and they are FAST! Great for dine-in or take-out.

If you like Hot and Sour soup then you need to come here. Poo Poo treasure platter is another favorite.

We've been eating here for almost 20 years now & have never been disappointed. The staff has been the same all that time and are all very attentive. The food is high quality & very tasty. All the dishes have distinct flavors and don't run together like many similar restaurants. We enjoy the hot & sour soup, sesame chicken &... More

I love this place. The staff is friendly and they remember you--even after a few months. The menu is extensive, local produce is used and NO MSG!!! The flavor of their food is great--no need for toxic chemical additives. Our favorites include: won-ton soup--great flavor, tender large pieces of chicken and excellent won-tons,....... sesame chicken---lots of sesame seeds, tender chicken... More

I judge a Chinese restaurant by its "Honey Walnut Prawns". These were large and tasty. The price was very reasonable.

This is a typical strip center Chinese restaurant. The food was okay, but nothing to rave about. The service was good and the prices were average.
