We placed an order by phone last night for 4 dinner combinations plus a few extras. It took 20 minutes (they told us 10 min). That was ok, at least it was hot. I have no idea what my meal was though. I had ordered...the shrimp in garlic sauce and what I got looked like chunks of chicken skin and vegetables in a tasteless sauce. Definitely nothing I’d EVER eat! Quite disgusting. They have a sign in their window by the cash saying to check your order before you leave.....I understand why but I wouldn’t have ever caught it anyway because it was in a sauce.More

I wouldn't recommend this place if you are looking for good Chinese food because it is very, very average. As the previous reviewer commented: "where is the flavor?" It was hot and a good portion size, but too bland for this Chinese food loving gal.

Got the Hot and Sour Soup, Cashew Chicken and Pork Egg Foo Young... with a couple of egg rolls. The soup was neither hot nor sour. The Cashew Chicken was bland. The Pork Egg Foo Young was well cooked, but again, had zero flavor. The...Egg Rolls were pedestrian at best. Ordered online and the order was ready when I showed up 10 minutes later, so there is one star. The other star is for good portion size, but seriously, I had to break out the jars of Asian spice to doctor it up to have it taste like anything. Panda Express would probably be better.More

My wife and I recently treated ourselves to the Lunch Specials at the Shang Hai Chinese restaurant on Shepherd Road in Mulberry, Florida. The specials are offered from 11:00 a. m. until 3:30 p. m. from Monday through Saturday. The cost of the specials does...not exceed $6.50, and most of the specials cost $5.99. Twenty-eight specials are offered, and the specials include roast pork fried rice and a 12-ounce soda. I ordered the orange chicken, and my wife ordered the pepper steak with onion. The portion of orange chicken was generous as were the portions of rice. However, only three or four thin strips of steak were included in my wife's meal. My wife apprised the female cashier of the small portion of steak, but the restaurant did nothing to redress my wife's grievance. LANCE K. STALNAKERMore

The food was good with the exception of the spring roll which was dry. Normally, everything is perfect

They have every dish you would expect. Food is made fresh and it’s tasty. Some seating inside I normally get it to go. Can’t miss if your in the mood.

Well we keep trying this place once or twice a year to see if it gets any better, but sadly it doesn't. The food is just flavorless as well as to expensive.

Went in for lunch only coupke others in there eating. Ordered food while waiting cook and two other employees yelling at each other. Received food had to ask for drink as they were not offering it even though shows on menu. Sat down to eat...food was wrong order. Back up to return then all hell broke loose. Girl and cook yelling at each other top of lungs shes trying to walk out. Finally get food wasnt cooked wanted money back as i was so upset from the screaming I couldnt eat. Would not even acknowledge I was there. This place is a thmbs down and should be shut downMore
