Received a warm welcome and a good table despite the place being almost food. A fairly standard menu but excellently cooked and well presented. Main courses not overwhelmed by MS sauces, so all the flavours flowed... More

Visited with family. Everything was excellent. The food, the service and the staff are all charming and entertaining. The best Chinese in Chester and surrounding areas hands down.

This is the best Chinese I have ever been to and I've been to a few in my time. The flavours in the dishes are amazing, service excellent I would definitely recommend this place.

excellent food, good service and very clean, the only observation would be that the restaurant is rather cold, been there several times, but during the winter need to put extra layers on, they appear to turn the heating off early in the evening, leaving it rather cold for diners

We didn’t book any tables we just walked in on the night. This well established restaurant is easy to find due to the large illuminated sign on the edge of the... More

I booked a table for 6 The restaurant was very busy but the staff were very attentive and helped us with our choices. We didn't feel rushed at all and the good was superb. We eventually opted for set banquet A and enjoyed every mouthful. Would definitely go again and happy to recommend to others

This was a great dining experience , the quality of the food was second to none. Despite the restaurant being very busy, which shows the popularity of the restaurant , the attention and service offered by the staff was brilliant. It was our first visit here and we had booked, which I think would be advisable, for any future diners.... More

We have eaten at the Shanghai on Hoole Road on lots of occasions. It always offers delicious food, alongside efficient, friendly service. I guess the word is consistent and excellent. Great menu with lots of choice - even for me as a vegetarian, ( though no vegetarian banquet) Vegetables in black bean sauce is simply delicious - as are the... More
