This has got to be the best Chinese food I have ever had, I don't know how Lenny cooks it so fast but the waiting time is only a few minutes.
We go there every time I am home and will continue to do so.
Very polite staff and nice Chinese beer :-)
I recommend a visit to anyone either visiting Newquay or living in Newquay.

My husband and I visited this Chinese after seeing the great reviews on trip advisor.
We weren't disappointed.
The service was great the young girls who served us were very polite and kind.
The food was excellent all served fresh and well presented. It was a small restaurant with a nice atmosphere and a number of families with children who were all enjoying the experience too.

Thank you

We visited Shanghai Express after reading the TripAdvidor reviews. It is, honestly, the nicest Chinese meal that we have had in years. Service was excellent. Definitely worth seeking out!

Note - noodles wonderful but one portion will feed 2! :)
