“the aroma of good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2013

the moment you enter the restaurant, more than the smiling faces of the crew, you would most likely be welcomed by the aroma of good food. Something you will find only in restaurants in kolkata or mumbai or elsewhere, but definitely not in guwahati. Good ambience and decor. A bit difficult to locate the place, but google maps helped me. Wanted to try the most tslked about piri piri chicken, but the waiter scared me saying that it was sooooooo hot that some guests had to request for sugar. So gave it a miss. Tried tetiyski chicken for starters, jamaican bbq chivken platter and cajun chicken platter for main course. Excellent taste and the chivken was juicy to the core. The menu is also an interesting read.
Overall good place to go. Keep it up.

“Lovely Food with a Great Ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2013

A great place to be if you are one of those foodies who love to taste something different and unique every time. The Pork Ribs tasted good - it would have been even better if the pork was a little more tender. A great place to be although located a little out of the city - plenty of parking space actually offsets this drawback. Would love to come back again.....

“Good Quality Food... with a twist !!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

We had gone to this place just to try out their Mexican Food and were surprised by the flavors and strong aroma that the Restaurant had to offer.... Whether it be their Peri-Peri Chicken or be it their Pork Ribs with French Fries, one does have to go back several times to figure out, why is it very different from the ordinary Mexican Restaurant one has in this part of India.... The service is excellent and you would often see the Chef make a round or two himself, asking about the food and taking suggestions for improvement..... All I would say is that one should go and try out some food the Shanghai Salsa Style...

“Chinese? Yes it is almost real Chinese food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2013

I went to this place on the recommendation of one of my very good friend. It was of course a good experience. Refreshingly it is not the usual Indianised-version-of-Chinese-food which normally Indian Chinese restaurants serve. Service is excellent. I personally loved that cozy place and of course the delicious food.

I normally find very little choices in such restaurants, as I am a vegetarian, but Shanghai Salsa was a good experience. They prepared something vegetarian for me, which is not there in menu, Paneer in some sort of smoked sauce. It was too good. They have aregular non-veg preparation in this kind of sauce. I don't mind even if they might have taken out pork pieces and dropped paneer, as long as I don't know. I am sure they must not have done this. But taste was too good. I would suggest this to all my non-veg friends and not so fussy vegetarian friends too. If you ask the waiter, he will immediately tell you about the preparations in smoked sauce.

They also serves Mexican, Cuban preparations, although I am yet to try.

Location is little off the town, but not far away. Parking is not at all a problem.

Price is reasonable.

Overall I would say better than Mainland China.

A must go for all Chinese food lovers.
