I ate here again today. Rice was great, crab rangoon was great, cashew chicken was okay. It just wasn't that fresh and was overcooked.

Small Chinese restaurant. Has a small drive-thru that doesn't even have a speaker. They just take your order at the window. They have a sign saying they prefer cash to avoid credit card processing fees. The price for my typical entree is $6 even and...well worth it,More

Typical Springfield place: fried rice served with a fried chicken dish smothered in thick sauce. Had the “spicy chicken” on the lunch menu. Not spicy at all. Added an egg roll, was in the mood. Barely any veggies all ground meat inside, most fell out...as I tried to dip into hot mustard.More

Very good food, we drove from Lebanon and picked it up to take home. Had 2 separate orders, we each went to our respective homes, in Lebanon, and then realized they had the orders all mixed up, plus they shorted us a couple of won...tons and two egg rolls, so we had to go back out in the cold and meet and switch our food around even though we still didn't get everything. All in all though, very good food and very nice staff. They just need to check the food before it goes out and make sure it's all there and in the proper bagMore

I had heard this was a great place. People rave about it. I have to say, I don’t know why. Two orders all-white meat Cashew Chicken, steamed rice, and crab Rangoon. Something was just missing in the CC sauce. It just tasted rather bland. Give...it a whirl - so many people say they love this place. Me, not so much.More

Not a fan of their "standard" meat dishes but do enjoy the shrimp fried rice and best eggrolls on the north side. My go to here is the huge containers of fresh veggie Ramen soups, add shrimp. They easily make 2 meals and are simply...delish. Must try!!More

My boyfriend and I went to Shanghai Inn today based on the recommendation of a total stranger! We absolutely loved it!! The food was absolutely delicious and perfectly prepared. We were looking for the quality of food, not ambiance, and were were not disappointed. Family...owned who prepare their own egg roll and crab Rangoon. Nothing frozen from a box here! Visiting with the owner, I asked about a faded signed picture of John Ashcroft, former Governor of Missouri and US Attorney General. It turns out that he and his family have eaten here for years!! Try this place if you want to eat in, small area, but very clean, or take out!! You will not be disappointed!!More

Beef veggies and noodles what a combination. Also had some wonderful crabrangoo. This is located on the corner of Atlantic and Gemstone. Would recommend this restaurant if you like good for a fair price
