Recently had a lovely lunch here.The luncheon specials are very reasonable and include soup, rice and entree. Service was efficient and friendly, restaurant was clean, and the food was so fresh! I had the ginger chicken with broccoli and fried rice- absolutely yummy, and my companion really enjoyed her General Tso chicken. I would definitely return- please try- you won't... More

Shanghai gourmet is an amazing Chinese restaurant. While from the outside this place does not look like it would be good. They need to fix their sign and the building a little bit. However, the food is amazing. I love the General Tsos chicken, the spicy chicken and peppers, and the shrimp and string beans. Service is pretty good. I... More

Have only eaten here a few times. The food was always fresh and prepared as requested. To me the flavor did not seem to be especially authentic. Also fried rice was overcooked. I would recommend this establishment just keep in mind if you are looking for more authentic food will have to travel a bit further. If I could would... More

Huge sign in the front window advertising a free glass of wine with dinner. It was not offered to us. When we asked, the owner made it sound like the town would not let her offer it during the week. Sounds crazy but if true, she should take the huge sign out of the window. Food is good, service is... More

I have to admit that the food at Shanghai Gourmet was decent Americanized Chinese food. The reason I only gave them one star is due to their horrible service. There is a large sign on the outside of their restaurant that says they offer a free glass a wine to patrons. We were told at 5:00PM they were out of... More

Don't let the strip mall location and storefront facade fool you, this place is really very good. From outward appearances it looks like just another local Chinese place but the menu and the smell from the kitchen is a real hint at the great food. Fried wontons (a guilty pleasure) were delicious and crackling crisp and the hot soup noodle... More

We drive from Woodbridge for take-out. The husband and wife team, he is the chef and she works the front are fantastic. Very friendly and care about the food. We have never been disappointed. Every dish is filled with fresh, crisp vegetables and the sauces are filled with flavor and not overpowering. We have a few favorites like the Mango... More

We stopped by for lunch. This is one of those places that isn't easy to find unless you are familiar with the neighborhood. It's small inside. It's a clean and friendly mom and pop operation. We tried the Szechuan Chicken and the Drunken Noodles. Very good! Most of the entrees come with soup and white or brown rice . Portions... More

Have been going here for years. Fantastic flavors in every dish. The challenge is to decide what to eat. Friendly service. Worth a visit
