Haven't had good Chinese food since leaving the DC area. This was better than good. We shared Mushi vegetables, Egg Foo Yung and a Chicken and Shrimp dish. All 3 were delicious. The sauce for the egg foo yung was the best I've ever had. This is not a fancy restaurant. Sorry I don't live closer. Hope I get back... More

Ok this place like it or not. Pick it apart if you must. WE all have our favorite place in Sacramento to go too. The service is good, food wonderful, has a large vegetarian portion of the menu. But yes parking is terrible, place is small. Truth be told is that they could have moved to a larger location, but... More

We order delivery at least once a month. They are always prompt and polite. We think their food is the best Chinese delivery in Sacramento...Have tried many others always come back. The food is fresher and seems a bit more healthy than most. Lots of vegetarian dishes, can ask for sauce on the side if you want to control how... More

The appetizers and main dishes were all excellent. I especially liked the eggplant in garlic sauce and tofu marinated in fermented black bean sauce. We enjoyed the service and dining room. This is a neighborhood gem.

Very good Chinese. The best we've had in Sac. The hot/sour soup is to die for. Tons of vegetarian options. Low on the grease. High on taste. Staff is outstanding.

I consider myself a Chow Mein aficionado , the stuff here is soaked in soy sauce. The other dish, Baby Bok choy, was average. Prices are cheaper, but you get what you pay for. Nice interior. I will still go to my favorite place around the corner on L Street. Myeh.

I often go to this resturant for lunch and I love their food. I can honeslty say that I have not had anything on the menu that I didn't like. The service can be spotty at times. It just depends on who is working that day. If it is the normal crew working, then the service is excellent. Overall, if... More

We have gone to Shanghai Garden for years and years. When we are in Sacramento, we go there a lot. You get a lot of great food for a very reasonable price. We have gravitated to the pork fried rice and the egg fu-young as our most-ordered dishes. Fresh veggies, great sauces, good times. We love Jeff as our server.... More

I used to go to this restaurant all the time however since they changed owners it's terrible. Today I had a pick up order of vegeterian chow mein. When I called the restaurant and told them my chow mein did not have one single vegetable, they did not believe me, they basically said that was impossible. I wish I had... More
