Shanghai Charlie's has closed. It was in decline for the last several years. When the fish in the aquarium are dead it is a sign that maybe you should find another place to eat.

Nice Chinese place in San Juan Capistrano. It does help to be the only Chinese restaurant in the area but it was good. Wife and I had a nice quiet, tasty meal.

Shanghai Charlie's may be the worst restaurant I've ever been to. Inedible food and horrible service. Instead, go to Yoon Kee Chinese Kitchen practically around the corner which is a wonderful hole in the wall and serious about providing delicious Chinese food.
