“Fantastic!”
Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

We visited here last night for my birthday meal. We have been staying in Newquay for the weekend and I really fancied Chinese. We looked on trip advisor and found shanghai express and hunted it down! It doesn't look much from the outside but when you get in there, the food and service makes up for it. We had a quarter of duck to start, for mains we had a special curry and crispy beef with egg fried rice, then a large glass of wine, vodka and coke and a large lemonade and the total was £37! Will Definately go again! A hidden gem! Thanks! :-)

“Best in the Country”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

My wife and I were down in Newquay from Suffolk for our anniversary and decided to grab some Chinese. We've been looking for a great place ever since we moved to England. Tripadvisor reviews sent us over to Shanghai Express and we were not disappointed. The staff was exceptionally friendly and the food was hands down the best we've had since moving here. I would personally recommend the "spicy garlic wings" starter.
