Moved to Springfield a year ago, and it seems that this place has tons of chinese restaurants. Shanghai Inn is okay. Decent food, pretty cheap, but nothing spectacular.

I had the hunan vegetables with white rice and spring rolls. I am on a plant based diet and they were happy to accommodate. The food was good. The sauce was a bit much but I toned it down with the rice. Spring rolls were excellent. Cozy and budget friendly, perfect for lunch.

We have visited this location for 30 years. Daughter wanted to stop again tonight. Service was fast and food was hot. One thing to note is that it is now cash only.

I probably would not have stopped here based on the look from the outside but it was recommended to me by a friend and I'm sure glad I did stop in. I ordered the Springfield cashew chicken and it did not disappoint. Very friendly service. Very fast and delicious. Prices were low and I would highly recommend this restaurant. Super... More
