My favorite simple dish combination fried rice medium spicy, crab Rangoon and pot stickers along...with a great egg roll and egg drop soup bam what a meal. cant forget the almond cookies !! This evening my sister ordered the Mongolian beef which was full of flavor great dish! Everything is awesome you won’t be disappointed!More

We recently went to Shanghai Inn with our family and were very happy with it. We were looking for what we call “New York Chinese,” which we define as a place having good versions of the classic things we grew up with (egg rolls, doughy...pork potstickers, sesame chicken, moo shu, etc.) We definitely found what we were looking for! We had great pork potstickers, boneless bbq pork, sesame chicken, chicken moo shu, sweat and sour shrimp, and pork fried rice. Service was fast and super friendly. We’d definitely go again!More

This will be our new Chinese food joint for our family. Luckily it is not that close to our home, otherwise, we will be there all the time. All the dishes we ordered were excellent with great flavors and right amount of heat for our...taste. We will definitively going there as often as we can.More

Shanghai is our go to neighborhood spot! We’re here three or more times a month. Staff is extra friendly and helpful in making decisions. Food is delicious whether youre dining in (get the hot tea + know that mostly everything is largely portioned with plenty...to take home) or picking it up to go. We consistently order the wonton soup, potstickers (outstanding!), beef & peapods, shrimp & lobster sauce, any type of chow fun or fried rice. We always venture out, choosing something new when we dine in. I recommend giving Shanghai a try, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!More
