I never liked Chinese food much and now I actually like getting food from here. We order probably once a month from Shanghai Chinese. It is takeout, there are only a few tables but we like to take it home anyway and always have leftovers.

Uninspired sauces too many fillers in every dish we have tried. Ended up picking through the pepper steak to come up 1 decent meal

Probably the best Chinese food place I've ever been to, anywhere. I live in VA Beach and good Chinese is so hard to come by. When I've visiting I almost always go here to get lunch. The portions are huge, the prices are cheap and the food is mouth watering good. I've never eaten a bad meal here. The delivery is fast as well. Whatever you order from Shanghai, I can guarantee it will be good.

This restaurant had fairly good food. We had a chicken dish and a beef dish. Each came with your choice of rice and a choice of soup or egg roll. The wontons in the soup were quite large. As we had the lunch specials, each dish was only $4.95

Yum! Shanghai is one of the best take-out (or delivery?!) Chinese restaurants I have ever eaten at!

First, both the lunch and dinner specials come with an egg roll, a choice of different rices or lo meins (vegetarian available), and then the entree. These containers are packed to the brim, so I definitely recommend opening these over a plate of some sort, because they are overflowing once you open them.

Second, the fried rice is not super greasy - it actually has more of a steamed rice texture with vegetables and meats added in.

I do enjoy the number of tasty tofu options prepared in similar styles to their meat dishes (General Tso's, Kung Pao, etc.). While I am not strictly a vegetarian, I do like to try many different foods and was impressed by the tofu here.

As we now live in this area, Shanghai has been something of a weekly ritual when it comes to take out food. As an added benefit, they also have a delivery service, which is unique in my Chinese food take-out experiences. It does cost a dollar, but they do service the Tonawanda area in general.
