Their voicemail says as of 2/19/16 they'll be closed for "...a few months due to a {unintelligible} remodel...". That was 3-1/2 months ago. We went there the other night, not knowing about the closing. The restaurant was dark, but we could see through the blinds that there was no sign of any kind of remodel going on. Also the sign...

A local favorite, the food is classic American Chinese which translates to; the kids will like it. The founder, whom most of the time is serving in the Bar is a big personality that all the locals know and loves. This is one of the first Chinese restaurants in Issaquah and has past the test of time. It is also... More

Quickly seated and served on a Saturday night. Water poured, warm (not hot) tea arrived, and our order was taken promptly. We started with Shanghai crab cakes, five little tasty concoctions of crab plus and a spicy sauce on the side, along with hot and sour soup which was warm (not hot) and flavorful. We chose Szechuan shrimp in hot... More

When I am in Issaquah, I always enjoy a visit to this restaurant. It is family friendly and has very good food. I especially like their shaved noodle dishes both regular and with green noodles. I sampled their happy roll and did not like it as well, but I think that my American taste accounts for that. If you go,... More

Six of us dined here recently and enjoyed the excellent service and reasonably priced entrees. Each of us ordered a different entree and sampled from the generous portions. Honey crisp prawns with walnuts was my favorite and the barley noodles were delicious. Noise level, even on a Friday night,allowed for table conversation without shouting.

The food at Shanghai Garden is always delicious, service is fast and friendly and pricing is fair. The hand shaved noodles are a treat as is the house special fried rice. My favorite order is cashew chicken...a very generous serving of both tender, flavorful chicken (not breaded) and whole cashews. The lunch specials are a real bargain. Servings are large,... More

Sometimes it is best to check the reviews prior to dropping in! With all the excellent choices that exist in today's restaurant options why find yourself with average at best. Confused menu, weak recommendations is not the norm, especially when it is so easy to find better options. Nice people but that doesn't make for great eating.

Shanghai Garden Restaurant has been a local fixture for a long time. It has a very large menu so there are plenty of options to please a wide range of people. Everyone will find a few favorites. I recommend the Barley Green Hand-shaven Noodles. You can get them with your choice of meat. We also like the Prawns with Sweet... More

We always loved Shanghai Garden. Reliable good food and service. Orange beef with veggies, hand shaven noodles with veggies, chicken with cranberry sauce and popcorn chicken with basil were our top favorites. Service is decent, too. So why 3 stars? 1) Ambience could be better for sure; 2) high prices. We last went there a couple of weeks ago and... More
