“Good value and Fresh ingredients”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2014

Very clean and inviting - expect white tables and chairs with touches of spring green. Service was ok. I had the prawn stir fry which was ample and very fresh. Sushi affordable and satisfactory. Decent wine selection (red) . I will def be back!

“Always Very Good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

Wanted a quick meal on Sunday evening on Mother's day and went to Shanghai (Curry Street). Sadly we were the only people there, but that aside the food was as usual up to its excellent standard. Service can be a bit slow, but if the food is good it is worth the extra few minutes one has to wait. My wife was also presented with a bottle of very acceptable red wine to take home as a gift which was very much appreciated. In summation Shangai is ALWAYS a VERY GOOD option when wanting to eat out.

“The BEST Sushi in East London!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

The sushi at Shanghai Beacon Bay is consistently amazing!
We absolutely love many of the normal chinese dishes, but it is always a winner to start off with some Salmon Roses, even their maki rolls are superb!
We have even started introducing our kids 3 and 6 to sushi, it is soo good!

“Not recommended”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

When you want to know good Chinnese restaurant, try the fried rice. if it good, the food will be good. On Shanghai restaurant, fried rice is not nice in term of taste and presentation. The duck just expensive and not even close to the real one. Only the staff try hard. Once again I'm not recommend this restaurant.
