We went to this resturant for our wedding anniversary as we stayed in Chester for a few days. The restaurant had good reviews and certainly lived up to them. The food was well cooked, came at sensible times with a pleasant break between courses and the staff were informative as well as being friendly, without being intrusive. We had a... More

Booked to eat here 3 weeks ago. A faultless meal. Great staff. Nice decor and the best one around by far. Will certainly return soon. All the meals were freshly cooked, all came piping hot and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Well done all.

This was a fantastic find which came on recommendation from our hotel. We tried one of the banquet menus and loved everything which came with it. When we go back to Chester this will be somewhere we definitely revisit. The food was excellent and very well priced. It was very busy though so we would recommend making a reservation to... More

Visited on a Sunday evening thinking it looked quiet, not at all it was very busy but our greeting and service all night was first class. We had a banquet for two, it was really good. Portions were good and the presentation was nice, with the food being delivered hot and tasty, drinks were brought whenever we wanted, and everyone... More

We ate here while staying at the Stone Villa which is a short walk away and were recommended The Shanghai by the hotel owners. We opted for the set menu here and this was a fantastic choice. Each course we were served was very well cooked and tasted fantastic! The only real issue we had with this restaurant was that... More

What a lovely restaurant. The staff are very attentive and welcoming. Very quick to take our orders and the food was brought out in a timely manner. Reasonably priced and the food portions were spot on. If your in this neck of the woods and in the mood for a Chinese, pop in and enjoy.

We had a nice family meal here, with friendly helpful staff and a good choice of dishes. Good for people with mobility issues. I agree with other reviewers that it's a bit pricey for what it is, but having said that, we all enjoyed our meals, as the menu is quite extensive.

I have driven past the Shanghai many times but never been in until now and boy am I glad I did. We visited on Chinese New Year so the restaurant was packed as you'd expect but we were shown to our table straight away. It does have the feel of being in someone's front room but there was a nice... More
