There's been a number of authentic mainland chinese restaurants open over the last 3-4 years in Swansea, catering to the increase in Chinese students coming here to study.

It has meant that locals who enjoy mainland chinese food such as Sichuan, Hunan, Beijing, etc have plenty of selection outside the typical cantonese offering.

I think Shang offers the best all round chinese dining menu with a great selection of spicy Sichuan dishes to your typical sweet cantonese style food. My personal favourite is Hunan which they can recommend for you along with fresh lobster on crispy noodles.

Tip: If you looking for a buffet style experience then you can sit downstairs however if your looking for a taste extravaganza then ask to eat upstairs where you will be offered a number of different dining experiences from cook your own hot pot and bbq to traditional chinese menus.

Food Net used to be my favourite place (just off Wind St) however since the change in ownership Shang wins hands down in Swansea!

My partner and I regularly visit Shangs, they have the best Chinese food I have ever tasted! The staff are very friendly and helpful. Shangs has recently undergone some refurbishment along with a very stylish new menu. Shangs is absolutely 1st class, if you are in the area I would highly recommend you give this place a visit. ( you have to try their nai Huang bao - they're amazing ).

We returnned to a very popular restsurant we used to dine at . The restsurant used to be called The Oriental Garden. We were greated by a very nice gentleman called Frankie. We were supprised to see that the restaurant was now under new management and a new name called The Shang Restaurant . Frankie explainned they were no longer were a buffet restaurant and they know cooked everything fresh and you had choice of many starters main courses and desert as much as you can eat.
Well it was absolutely beautiful and we would highly recommend a visit we will definately be returnning In the very near future.

We also had a take away for our son and he said it was very nice.
