Just what you'd expect from your local Chinese place. Large portions served fast by I'm guessing a family run restaurant. Very pleasant and nice staff.

Nothing over the top ... your fairly traditional Chinese food restaurant but in downtown Telluride. The service was excellent and the food was above average. Price was also better than most restaurants in Telluride.

We went here with four adults on New Year's Day for a change of pace from the pizza, burgers, and chili while skiing. It is tucked in an old building, but has a bar and two-story seating. The menu is old-school - no Asian fusion here, but was plentiful and good. The service was fine, although the kitchen was a... More

We needed a change of pace, and this hit the spot. Food came fast and was fresh and tasty. Nothing particularly special, but at the same quality level as other excellent food in Telluride.

We were struggling to find something in Telluride that was good and not too expensive, and this fit the bill. The food was excellent (especially the sweet and sour chicken). The place had a very nice atmosphere, and the staff was courteous and friendly. I'm not one who typically picks Chinese food, but I really enjoyed this place.

The Shanghai Palace was a pleasant surprise. Good location, good service and excellent Chinese food. We went once at lunch time and once for dinner. The have a lunch special that includes egg drop soup, egg roll and a dish. At dinner you need to choose from the menu that offers an incredible selection of offers. We shared the dishes... More
