Visited this restaurant after being very highly recommended by the owners of the guest house we were staying in. Although we enjoyed what we had to eat and drink....we found the whole experience over priced and over rated - we will not be re-visiting.

Had a meal here last night with my husband. The chicken in the Chow Mein was vile. For the prices they charge is was a great disapointment. Certainly won't be visiting this one again.

Our favourite restaurant's gone! As a treat we went to the restaurant as a family after not visiting for 6 months and found the whole experience was a massive disappointment. I cant think of how many people I have recomended visit this restaurant over recent times. Based on our most recent experience I am afraid its lost its mojo!
The food was the best chinese in the North West outside of Manchester however its been overtaken easily now by Mr Chows in Parkgate.
It looks like a place thats fallen on hard times from the shabby rotten wood sizzling platters to the cheap and tacky presentation of condiments and the main courses.
Sadly this place used to ooze class and the premium prices charged were worth a culinary treat however this meal was still expensive yet way below value for the high price paid.
The experience lacked atmosphere, and the special touch we have come to expect here worst still the historically outstanding food was very very average, considering my main course was £20 its just not the place we will risk spending a £100 on a family meal again in a hurry.
The whole experience was beyond a let down - Sorry Shanghai - based on this visit you are living on past achievements.

Fantastic food - really flavoursome and tasty. I had sizzling beef with lemongrass and it was really good!
Great staff, good atmoshphere (which is sometimes licking in Chinese restaurants), and good value for money. Would definitely go again!

Just returned from first visit to Shanghai, had always heard good things about it but somehow not got there until now. Excellent food, very fresh, good flavours. Service good. We were in and out in about an hour and a half, pretty efficient, so not a lot of lingering.
