Even though there are several other Chinese restaurants closer to our home than this one, my family always chooses the Shanghai Restaurant in Waukee when we have hankering for Chinese food. You simply cannot beat it.
The entire staff is delightful. You always feel welcome here and special here, and the food is wonderful. My only complaint is that their prices have gone up a bit in the last year or so, but that is only because more people have discovered that this is the best Chinese food in central Iowa. You can't begrudge their success, however, as it is very well deserved.
