My wife and I heard that Juping Chi reemerged and purchased Shanghai Lil so we went there for dinner and I'm glad we did. The food was outstanding and of the highest quality. We sampled several original dishes including very fresh seafoods and were very...More

Dated looking interior, nice but not extensive menu options, bland food, and an over-the-top manager/bar tender/server who tried too hard to please (if that's even possible). Pot stickers were very good but shredded Peking duck stir fry was light on the duck and heavy on...More

We had a delicious Christmas Eve meal at Shanghai Lil, and although we had no reservations, the restaurant was quite accomodating for our party of 7. The menu is extensive, however, not as extensive as one typically finds at a Chinese restaurant. The waitstaff is...More

My husband made the reservations for Christmas Day and confirmed with the person who took the reservation that they will be serving "Dim Sum". We were excited to dine there, doing something different for the holidays. When we got seated, we didn't see any dim...More

The dim sum doesn't compare to what you will find in a major city with a china town, but it works as a stand in here in Indy. No carts, just a list to mark on, but the items mostly seemed quite good. A few...More
