“Good”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Decent place but I think a bit overrated and overpriced. It isn't like a traditional Chinese place as I believe they have upscaled it a bit from the
traditional.

“Good Authentic Shanghai Style Cuisine”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Good shanghainese restaurant; good ambience, reasonable price, good range of selection on the menu, very good service for an asian restaurant. A local favorite and we frequent quite often b/c its fairly consistent in its quality of dishes and service. The WaterBoiled Beef is a Shanghainese popular dish that they do very well here but a great very many other dishes are just as good. It doesn't have a good looking "storefront" or "curb appeal" so this may put off some people like us initially (we live close by but often thought the front store was cheesy looking and unfairly avoided going to this restaurant. But after we reluctantly had to try it once, we were extremely surprised by the quality of decor, people, service, food found if you look past the front entrance that is tucked in a corner of a sad looking strip mall. Its 1 to 2 minutes from the (Willowbrook Wayne) Loews Cinema, and Willowbrook Mall, if you enter through the same driveway off Route 46

“Great Chinese”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

When I have a craving for authentic Hot & Sour soup I head to Chengdu 46. No one makes it better. In fact everything on the menu is first rate and authentic. Whole lobster with Ginger Sauce and Fantail Shrimp and Celestial Chicken Rolls are amongst other favorites.

The wine list isn't bad for a Chinese restaurant.

“Never going back”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

Been going here on and off since for a long time...food has gone very down hill, and we won't be returning. servings small, tasteless, and slow service when we were the only table. Try Hunan Taste in Denville for a much better Chinese Experience.
