I normally do not care for egg rolls because the wonton dough is usually too thick for my taste......and then there's Shanghai Garden's egg rolls----outstanding. The hot and sour soup was delicious also as were the other dishes we shared: great orange shrimp and Lo mein.

After trying several various Chinese establishments throughout Highlands Ranch & Littleton, I was ecstatic to find SG! - Not a fan of crab cheese wontons. This is the 1st I've found with plain cheese wontons. - Dining in early evening on a Wed night allowed for attentive service. Interior was clean & modern. Sesame Chicken is priced at $12.95 w...

Friendly service and good food. Lots of seating inside and of course they do takeaway service. This is the best option for Chinese food in the Littleton/Centennial area. Prices are reasonable for this type of food. We had the lettuce wraps as a starter — they were delicious. Definitely kid friendly as well.

This is a review of my last 4 visits to this restaurant over the past few weeks, including today. Great service except one guy server is a real jerk, but the rest are spot on. Food comes out hot, fresh and fast. Among the Chinese places I frequent around Denver, this place has become my favorite. I always get the... More

Really nice ambiance and friendly. But the two dishes we had were way too salty almost like you are drinking soy sauce. Too bad.

I was visiting the south Denver area, where I used to live, and wanted some Chinese food for lunch. Unfortunately the restaurant I frequented when I lived here has closed so I checked out Yelp and found Shanghai Garden on E. Arapahoe. The restaurant was easy to find and has ample parking. The interior is pretty classic Chinese restaurant but... More

I live near this place but had never been in until this week. I went with a couple of people that I work with who swear by this place for great food and service. I was very pleased with our meal. We had two apps, the spareribs and their version of chicken drumettes, both quite yummy and plentiful. Then we... More

I have been coming to this restaurant for a very very very long time! I was a patron when it was in its previous location of the old Southglen Mall. I love it still today. Since moving to the Florida Keys it is the first place that I take my mom when I travel back home.

This place was recommended by employees at a nearby store, and they were right. We had a fast, inexpensive and delicious lunch. My soup was hot-- one of my pet peeves is lukewarm soup--and the lo mein was served with an egg roll, which means we were full before we had eaten the generous helping of noodles. They were still...

So easy to order and pick up. Everything is good! If you are thinking of trying something new to you, you can trust this place. Lunch portions are good sized and come with soup, egg roll, and rice. Dinner size is worth the price. We have eaten in and the service was good.
