Grand Shanghai Restaurant is the only Chinese Restaurant on the block. There is nothing fancy about it. Just plain and simple Chinese food served in an big room dotted with tables covered in white tablecloths. Its a "no sweat" place. One goes in, gets seated...More

we've been eating at Grand Shanghai for at least ten years now, and we never think twice about going back. The service is always personal and friendly, and the food is consistently very good. We enjoy the all-you-can-eat luncheon buffet as much as sharing family-style...More

Grand Shanghai will do in a pinch, when I really have a craving for Chinese. It is run of the mill midwestern quality Chinese food. Having grown up in NY I've come to accept it, although there are definitely better options in the Twin Cities....More
