Went with my Mrs., son, sons wife and four kids. Teddy and his wife made us feel right at home with a warm welcome! My wife and I were visiting from NC. They aim to please and the food is very good. Place is small but they also deliver. The food is not only good but reasonably priced for the... More

Craving for my chinese food - needed more than just a quick fix - went to my favorite place - Shangai Express. I used to go almost every week - now - I curb it to once every 3 months or so (more due to my need to curb my food intake than anything else). I could go overboard with... More

Not only is the chinese food wonderful, but the people who run this restaurant and true "community" people. We call the gentleman who own the business the "mayor" becuase he seems to know everyone who walks in the door and greets you with a smile - and will probably remember your name! If it is your first time there he... More

If you are from the West Coast and have traveled looking for the Asian Flare that tastes more like home...this is the place for your tastes! Food is better than average, prices are reasonable, and the only thing I can't vouch for are the garlic sauce dishes which in my opinion need retooling. Other than that, we have tasted our... More

We came back and the food has recovered nicely. We do takeout and the food was very good. General Tso's chicken was great as was the sauteed green beans.

Shanghai Express is our favorite local Chinese restaurant. The food is always excellent and the service is great. Normally we order take-out, but occassionally eat in, where we are treated royally. Delivery is also available. Their soups are the best we've had in any Chinese restaurant, and the entrées never disappoint. Once you start eating the noodles and duck sauce,... More

The food never fails here. A standard for takeout, but the true experience is eating in. Ted makes you feel like one of the family. You can watch as he greets each guest by their first name as if they have known each other for years. Because they have. The menu is great but the personality behind the business adds... More

Have gotten take out from here 4 or 5 times...I haven't been impressed by the quality of the items I've ordered. Agree with everybody else that the owner is nice, though.

My family and I have been eating here for decades! Ted is a awesome and remembers his customers names and orders all the time. The food is consistent and delicious! All the locals call it "Teds". My aunt and uncle travel 45 minutes to eat here it's that good. Each time they pass by China town in Philadelphia.
