This Chinese restaurant has been here a long time. For some reason we stopped going there and had been gone for a few years. Well we went back yesterday and the place still has great food, in fact, all our favorites were there and tasted as good as ever. The ambiance has changed very little too and is still one... More

I live in Florida and was visiting family so it was a special treat to visit a restaurant that has real Chinese food. The vegetable dumplings were lightly fried and were much better than the steamed pork dumplings, We ordered egg plant, shrimp with walnuts, sauteed green beans and a chicken dish and all were well prepared. Definitely recommend this... More

....... "Do Not feel desire to return here" [and that is an awful indictment on an eating establishment]..... My friend took me to this place she visited only sparingly in the distant past. FOOD: The "Shanghai" cuisine here tastes and appears as standard "Chinese" food to me -- I have been eating this Cantonese style for 65 years. It is... More

We had 5 dishes and except for the beef shaved noodle soup, the rest was salty, overcooked and oily. I doubt I will be back here since there are so many options in China Town. The service as others have noted was really not good. They were very rude when we asked for warm water as if they had never... More

This restaurant makes the kind of Chinese food that non-Asians eat. We ordered barleygreen chow mein (their specialty), handshaven soup noodles, and steamed dumplings. Okay cooking, but very overpriced. Flavour so-so, mostly MSG salty, greasy and doughy, very thick dumpling wrappers and noodles. When we were there the place was relatively full, but I was the only customer of Asian... More

After many visits over many years this is still our favorite. Good service and great menu at reasonable prices. We love their Green Hand Shaved Noodles, Peavines in Mushroom Oyster Sauce, and the best Orange Beef in Washington State.

Restaurant is in Chinatown diagonally from Waji and is a good place for those in the neighborhood for a sports event or other activity at one of the nearby venues. The menu has been expanded and includes hand shaven noodles (both regular and barley green), a variety of chicken, pork, and beef dishes, veggie options, sizzling platters, and good appetizers...

We arrived on a Friday night at 8pm after the Seattle Boat show and were able to get right in. Hot tea and water delivered to the table along with menus. It took a little while to decide,but the wait staff was very patient, and when we did order, they made sure it was delivered to the table quickly, well... More

Every trip to Seattle I meet my friends for dinner at Shanghai Garden. We order the barley green noodles, the crispy shrimp in plum chili sauce, and the morning glory stir fry. We usually get a couple of order of the noodles and shrimp and it's very very delicious.

While most snobby foodies will hate this place because it caters to Americans, it did a great job of recreating the East Coast Chinese food I grew up eating and was the best alternative I've had living on the West Coast. I was in Seattle for Jewish Christmas and wanted to eat some Chinese food. I went to the International... More
