“Not Very Good”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Service was lacking and the food was marginal. Nothing in particular wrong but not all that good either. Food was fairly bland. The dining room is nicely decorated if you can ignore the large metal buffet tables blocking the walkway. There are way too many good restaurants in Helsinki to waste a meal in this one.

“Terrible”
Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

Had sweet and sour pork with my wife, and it was terrible, pork was dry and too fried, sauce was way too sweet. Service was nice and friendly.

“Have you ever been in their kitchen?”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Chinese say never check the kitchen of the restaurant where you dine. Apply this principle when you are eating in Grand Shanghai.

“OK Chinese Food”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

First I must say that I come from Vancouver, and I am spoiled by the amazing Asian food available and created there. So my expectations are always high. Unfortunately, they were not met at Grand Shanghai. As a starter, I had the dumblings (not a typo!) or dumplings as the translation should be. They were steamed and not cooked through and the side sauce was very bitter (about €4). I then had the Szechuan Beef dish (€12). It was okay and my lunch partners found it very spicy, although I did not. There were not many vegetables and the sauce was the run of the mill brown sauce you find in most Chinese restaurants. Edible, yes, I ate it all, but not what I consider Szechuan cuisine. I also had a taste of the black bean beef, and it was ok. I think this place is quite decently priced for Helsinki but I cannot rave about the food.
