“Perfect Take Out Din”
Reviewed 12 May 2014 via mobile

We arrived late that evening. We were road weary, tired and mucho hungry. We asked locals for recommendations and we heard": Shanghai". Our cashier at City Market reported " There isn't a better place". Then she told us " their egg drop soup is THE best. My daughter always wants to eat hers then mine". We delighted in their egg rolls. They were fresh, crispy,light & full of flavor. There was almost a flora essence and taste. The combo egg foo young was loaded with flavor, plenty of meat/fish and sooo perfectly good! Shrimp, scallops and egg sauce was the other choice that was well prepared and simply delicious. Rice was hot, tasty and so well done.
The owners could not have been more gracious nor thankful. We love this place. We wish we could enjoy the menu more often. We left with such a warm sense that we had been served by folks who were culinary artists who cared about preparing a great dinner for us./ Special? Yeah, we felt special.
Enjoy. Enjoy! =Enjoy!!

“It was us (tourists) and the rest locals. Good Sign!”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

We were reassured to see the number of locals eating here and carrying out the whole time we were there including police and a local business group. The staff was very friendly, the price was a great value for a tourist community. THANKS! We'll be back, if we ever get through the leftovers from the above average serving sizes. TIP: share dishes and don't order one for everyone, they are amply sized.

“Nice family asian restaurant in Pagosa”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

We were staying in the far west end of Pagosa on a recent ski trip and discovered this nice little family run asian restaurant on a backstreet that seems mostly frequented by locals. The food was tasty and plentiful, the service good and the atmosphere was laid back and fun with lots of conversation all around. The kind of place you can go to in your jeans or even your ski wear straight off the mountain if you want. A good option if you are staying in the west side of town and dont want to make the drive downtown to the more touristy area to eat.
