The restaurant has a very convenient location SE corner of Preston Road & LBJ (i-635) and offers many standard menu options plus scallion pancakes and sesame balls (two of my favorites left off many menus). The food is somewhat bland, which may make a good...More

Our impression was that the people who had called in orders to go took preference over those who were in the restaurant. We had to wait a long time for everything. During the time we were in the restaurant several couples left.

Shanghai is our new Chinese take out spot. The food is quite tasty and there's even an "authentic" side of the menu for the adventurous. The restaurant is attractive but not heavily decorated. We hate over-seasoned spots like Pei Wei and this restaurant, which has...More

This is a nice little Chinese restaurant. The food is very fresh and tasted good. I had the shrimp with lobster sauce. However, service was generally poor, as the staff did not understand English well and my food came out nearly 10 minutes after my...More

Shanghai Restaurant came very highly recommended by a Chinese colleague. Even though we were excited to try it, it did not impress. Crab rangoon -- cardboard wrappers, and where is the crab? Hot and sour soup? Okay, some sour, but where is the hot? Singapore...More
