Not sure how this place has the kind of reviews it does. I ordered 25$ worth of food. The container of chicken was less than half full and in addition half of was onions. Called the establishment and the guy was casual with his response. I've had amazing Chinese food all over but this was a huge disappointment. Didn't taste... More

Quick friendly service. Good food. Reasonable prices. Would go back again. Since I am Asian , I know good authentic food just like food from Chinatown in Toronto.

I came here because of the reviews and will go back at some point. The food was quick and service was attentive. Despite the tired interior and complete lack of ambiance, i think this place deserves another try:)

This is my favorite Chinese restaurant. The waiter knows me and my boyfriends order because we go there so much. Spicy green beans are the BEST. Everything I've had there has been nothing short of delicious!! Highly recommend. So happy I was introduced to it.

On of the best Chinese restaurants in Windsor. This is the only place I eat Chinese in the City!!! My Family has been going here for over 15 years 👏. The dishes are plentiful they substitute to a point for you. Flavourful and colourful dishes. Service is quick and to the point no needless chatter or interruptions during your meal.... More

Stopped in for dinner and found it enjoyable. Hot and sour soup was tasty, spring roll was too. I had rice and sweet and sour chicken and it was fine. Hot tea, hot soup , hot fresh dinner..all good :)

I live in Tecumseh and I will drive 20 minutes each way for takeout from shin shin. I love the crispy beef and spicy green beans! Recently ate at a restaurant in China Town in Toronto and shin shin was better! I highly recommend it.

Decent fare but like all Windsor joints, not even close to GTA caliber. Salt & pepper dishes are Westernized but some of the shrimp dishes are quasi-authentic, especially if one asks for them off the menu. Portions are small relative to other local joint, especially compared to north of the river/border.

They have one the best hot and sour soup I have ever tasted. The service is quick and the staff are always friendly. I admit to copying this from an other review because I could not have said it better myself. We had the beef with ginger that I would highly recommend. Will definitely be returning with a larger group.
