“a wonderful meal”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

We ate here twice during a recent visit to Iasi, lunchtime and evening. The service was very good and food served promptly. The food was very tasty and I am sure the menu will develop.A few more authentic aperitves would be appreciated.

We recently visited Shanghai Restaurant in Iasi and we think the food is authentic and this place has a well trained staff. Atmosphere is decent and we were well treated. Recommended! ;)

“Not worth the try”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Food: average.
No rice comes with the food. YOU HAVE TO ORDER IT SEPARATELY!!! When you eventually do, the food is already cold.

No meat in "beef shijin"! Manager says, we apologize and took notice. No other compensation of any kind...

Overall:

Avrage chinese food. OK atmosphere. Miserable service. Careless management

Shanghai R, Manager at Shanghai Restaurant, responded to this review, November 21, 2012
Dear mister Riliescu,

First we would like to thank you for the comment you posted on our trip advisor page. It is very important for us to take each opinion and to manage all the problems that might appear while we are trying to fulfill the taste of each person that passes our threshold. Secondly, we feel sorry that you had to confront with the above mentioned situations. Regarding the rice problem, what we tried to do when separating the main dishes was to give people the opportunity to choose for themselves, not to give them a pre-set menu like in the food-court area.
We are still at the begging and we know that as in real life when you meet a person for the first time, first impression is a decisive one, and since our first date was an unpleasant one, we invite you to meet us again under improved circumstances,

Best wishes,
Shanghai Restaurant

“A long way to go”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

I visited this restaurant with 3 colleagues,although it is new it gets busy at weekends so it is best to book a table in advance. It is very clean and looks fantastic inside. As a group we ordered 4 portions of spring rolls as starters and a main course with either rice or noodles. The service was appalling, it took 25 minutes to receive drinks, the spring rolls arrived after 45 minutes looking rather aneamic and undercooked, they were terrible. The rice arrived without the main course, that turned up ten minutes later, one of the main courses was cooked in batter, like the starters it was very floury and undercooked as if it had been cooked in oil that wasnt hot enough. The sauce for another main beef dish was very tasteless and bland. The staff were all young Romanians and very polite, they tried to be as helpful as possible. They were suffering from a lack of any form of management giving direction in the restaurant. One poor waiter spent ten minutes wandering around carrying soup trying to identify the correct table.
A poor effort in general, this establishment has got to improve with time, until then i would suggest looking for another restaurant for a Chinese meal.
