“AWFUL!!”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

We paid $42 for raw beef and broccoli, soured shrimp egg rolls, burnt fried rice and we ordered General Tsao chicken and was given orange chicken. On top of that, we were suppose to have 3 orders of rice and only had one when we got home. The food and service is awful and the price is outrageous.

“Buffet all the way!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We must have had the mean waitress so I know what the other reviewer was talking about but we got everything we needed and the food on the buffet was great. The issue must be with take out so don't do that. Buffet was 6.95 and the veggies weren't over cooked and the spring rolls were delicious.

“Good food, bad waitress.”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

We enjoyed the appetizers and entrees but one of the worst waitresses ever ruined our meal. She pushed things around and piled dishes on the table while we were still eating our appetizers. Halfway through the entrees she plopped the check on the table and went back to where she was sitting. It wasn't like someone was waiting on a table. We were the only ones there! We also had to find our own to-go box. As we were paying, I noticed the waitress working on something. Maybe homework or her application to the Mississippi School of Hospitality. Wait staff like this princess can shut down a business.

“Not your typical cheap Chinese food.”
Reviewed November 3, 2011

While Shanghai has the typical (or should I say classic?) Chinese dishes on their menu, the food is prepared in a way that is unique. My family has been eating at Shanghai for years and loves it! This restaurant is a small, family owned and operated business, not part of a chain or franchise. If you are looking for the dirt cheap, all-you-can-eat stereotypical Chinese buffet type food like you would find at any of the dime a dozen Chinese restaurants around the country then please go somewhere else! If you are in the mood for good, home cooked Chinese dishes, then this is the restaurant for you! The food is classic and savory, the portions are large, and the price is reasonable. Their lunch buffet is small, but delicious. Definitely a local favorite!

“Yummy :)”
Reviewed July 25, 2011

We've eaten there on serveral occasions and the food has always been good. I love the General Chicken and my husband usually gets the Shirmp with Lobster sauce.
