We loved Shanghai restaurant! If you want tasty, generous portions of Chinese food with great service for a decent price, we highly recommend Shanghai Restaurant. We had two drinks and three entrees for $20. Our waitress was very friendly and accommodating. Central location. We highly recommend.

One of the better Chinese restaurants in Kampala and very good value for money. try the chicken with cashew nuts, tofu with chilli, spring rolls and shanghai freid rice.

I am a born resident of Kampala, Uganda. I have been to many restaurants in and around the city. I was invited by a friend to for dinner at this place one day, little did I know that Chinese food could get so good. It was great. The service and ambiance matched. the price were friendly. i could not have asked for more.

Finally decided to try Shanghai, and the experience was very average compared to our usual favorite Chinese stop in Kampala (the excellent Nanjing in Kololo). The goods: location (across from backside of Sheraton hotel), setting (1911 colonial building next to Kampala club), service (attentive and speedy). The average: main dishes including a chicken and pork dish, reasonable prices. The bad: starters, particularly the steamed dumplings, the bathroom (vomit in sink). Will probably avoid this restaurant in the future, as better options in Kampala.

I love the hot ad sour soup here, I also hate the hot and sour chicken soup here. Mainly due to that it depends on the chef present at the time. You might get an excellent soup or you will get one full of lumps of blackpepper. Its a well priced place with good food on the right night. As it is a smaller place it is usually quiet so for a nice quiet evening dinner it is usually good on their balcony.
