I have rarely given one star. And we don’t expect to get the same quality of food we get “in the big city.” But come on. The food here has become worse than what you can buy in the frozen food section! And this is not a one off experience. My family has been coming here since it opened. It can all be attributed to loss of quality I am sure is connected to saving a few dollars: 1. the rice is a day old or older 2. the cuts of ALL the meat have become super cheap including sad sack seafood 3. the coveted fortune cookies were STALE! Come on people. My niece spent part of her summer job savings to treat the family. They owe her a refund! Service is so so. The chain Chinese fast food in the Forum is better. You know, the one with the bear in its name.

If you are from California or a Yankee the food will be okay. If you have traveled in Europe or the orient this food is like eating cardboard. It is tasteless and less than authentic.

We were greeted as welcomed guests and seated quickly. Our wonton soup came quickly and was tasty. Entrees were portioned well and the down side was the fried rice which was bland and the egg rolls were not that good. If they improve the fried rice and the egg rolls they might get one more star.

The food is very good and consistent. The waitstaff is always smiling and friendly. Definitely try one of their dinner specials or lunch specials!

We have been going to Shang Hi for many years - it was our daughter's favorite and even years after she moved away whenever she'd come back to visit we needed to take her there - and they always remembered and brought her what she wanted - even though it was no longer a menu item. That's just how they are. Great food, great fast service and reasonable prices. We'll keep going back!
