“Great service and better food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

This some of the best Chinese food in the valley. They have excellent service. My wife wanted Crab Rangoon which wasn't on the menu at the time. They went next door to the supermarket and bought cream cheese so they could make it for her. Where else will find service like that? The food is very fresh and doesn't have that heavy greasy taste like many Chinese restaurants.

“Unexpected Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

This place had great reviews so I decided to give it a try. It is hidden in the back of a shopping center. Fairly small place with maybe 15 tables, very clean. The food is excellent, a great value with huge portions. An entree, cup of soup, soda and appetizer was $23 and it was easily enough for two meals. Only issue was the service which was not bad it just was not great. I'll be back the next time I'm in the area.

“Finally found THE BEST Chineese Restaurant in Visalia!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

We moved to Visalia a few years ago and we've been trying different Chinese restaurants. A friend recommended Shanghai to us; it's the Best Chinese food in town. My husband and I are hooked on the Honey Walnut Shrimp and the #2 Plate. We go at least once a week. You got to try it.

“Drive 70 miles to have the best Chinese food, enough said!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

You will be greeted by Judy, friendly and now your friend. The menu and the chalkboard specials are special. Pork Chow Mein, salt and pepper shrimp or calamarie the best anywhere. This is a neighboorhood smallish resaurant but it is well worth the effort finding. Problem now is it is getting a reputation of a great meal at a valued price. The Shanghai Chinese Restaurant can be recommended for a fine dining experience.

“Best Chinese in Visalia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

Hands down the best Chinese food Visalia has to offer. Service is always good, food quality very consistent. We try to eat there every week. Judy, co-owner will remember you and your favorites after only a few visits.
