I've been here many times. I thought it was a coincidence that I'd be ill after each visit but the final time just topped the cake. I'm not sure if it is the overuse of msg or god knows what but headaches and cramping isn't something I get when I normally eat out. Service here is also terrible. Have to... More

I've eaten here many times and each time of late, have increasingly become disappointed with the service. Tonight we arrived at 7pm for dinner. We waited and waited for someone to take our order. After 20 minutes, we flagged someone down. Almost every dumpling dish was "not available". It made choosing our dishes quite easy as not much was left... More

We stopped in here after doing some shopping at Chatswood Chase. I have not had Chinese in over 3 years as they usually don't offer gluten free food. New Shanghai had a special gluten free menu and I was so happy I nearly cried! Real authentic Chinese food. I had soft shell crab for the first time in a very... More

Hard, bland dumplings and a lost order for another dish that twice needed querying was pretty ordinary. Food menu selection is not wide, however it would be fine if the quality and service had been ok. May have just been one of those 'on the day' poor experiences noting the other higher ratings. A let down for us though.

Visited Shanghai recently and tried the dumplings all over the city but i actually enjoy the food at New Shanghai more. What amazing plump fresh dumplings on offer! Love sitting at the bar and watching the dumplings being made by the very industrious staff. Favourites include: Pork and chive, pork and coriander, lamb and leek, prawn dumplings and of course...

There are two branches of New Shanghai in Chatswood - one in Chatswood Chase and the other in Lemon Grove. The Lemon Grove branch is slightly cheaper (no doubt because the rent is far lower) but they have an almost identical menu. The dumplings are the best in Chatswood, in my opinion far better than Din Tai Fung and a... More

I admit I was craving Chinese food after having lived in China for many years. However, I was positively surprised about the food quality. We've ordered quite a number of plates including Xiao long Bao, rainbow beef, fired beans, dumplings. Everything tasted great. Service was also very friendly Definitely will come back here again.

This used to be a family favourite for us, but after last night's meal, I will have a very difficult job getting them back there. While the pork belly and the green beans with shrimps were both up to standard, the dumpling should not have been served. The pan fried pork bun was dry with a tough skin, the other... More

I have been to this store a couple of times. Each time the customer service becomes worse and worse. They were short staffed and inexperienced today. My missus and I got to our seats quickly as we went at 5:00pm. However as soon as we sat down, it took us up to 10 minutes before we could get the attention... More

This place serves amazing food, and I really love their dumplings, simply delicious! It might not have nice decor, but the food won't disappoint. Very good chinese food joint.
