“I agree, this place is great”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Pretty bizarre and random outside, probably not a place you would check out without a referral from someone. Then the inside is also somewhat strange. A mix of sparse and bizarre. There is a fish tank on one part of the restaurant and taxi cab beads (you know the ones cab drivers put on their seats to provide back support and comfort) on the seat cushions of some of the booths. There is also what a broken old fish tank and some boxes in another corner. Strange, but even with those strange items, it is spotlessly clean.

Once you get past or enjoy the novelty of some of the uniqueness of the feel, everything is great. The service is fine and efficient. The really winning parts of the experience are the food and the pricing. It is really inexpensive and you realize the markup other restaurants are charging because the quality is there but the pricing is just significantly less. They are known for their takeout, which makes a lot of sense. I probably equally like their sushi and their chinese. I bounce back and forth. I like their Chinese a lot but the pricing of their sushi for the quality is really good.

Shang Yao is definitely not a place for a fancy date night, but for lunch, takeout, or a good inexpensive dinner, it is great.

“Greatness”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

Small place off the beaten path. Food is great and dirt cheap. But the true star is the sushi. Diamond roll!! These guys remember your name, what you like, and are personable. Can't get enough.

“GREAT food, a little funky on the atmosphere, but...”
Reviewed March 11, 2012

This has to be the best Chinese food around the H-E-B area! Everything made to order and if you want to spice it up, just tell them. Best wonton soup I've had in years! They have a drive thru so you can call ahead and just pick it up at the window. Garlic Pork is some of the best I've had and I like it spicy and they make sure it is for me! Fresh sushi on hand when you order it! The interior could use a little renovating, but the food is great.

“Great Chinese food”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

I am very picky about Chinese and because of this it is very difficult to find a good delivery place. Randomly called this place for delivery and wound up very surprised at the great food! I had the Chinese Ribs and they were amazing. Usually bad Chinese places let their ribs sit in that sauce and it soaks in and makes the ribs even greasier and uneatable. Not here, the sauce was perfect and the ribs had much less grease than standard Chinese Ribs. I took my wife a few weeks later to try their other dishes and we were again treated to great Chinese food. We got free Crab wontons,which were the best I've had in years. Waiter was also great and very helpful with recommendations. Will definitely be ordering from here whenever I crave Chinese food!
