Small restaurant that serves Shanghai style Chinese food. Reservations recommended. Servers are not rude as other posts claim, they are just matter of fact. We asked if we could have a table that wasn't right by the door. Was told NO, when questioned, all other tables were reserved. Once sat and ordered, waitresses friendly and helpful. When menu says spicy,... More

Easy dinner, price alright and foods good too, but not a quiet place and hard to found a parking spot .. It's good eating the Shanghai Cusinie here and don't forget make a reservation first if you wants a better seating !

Lunch was as good as many with similar menu. Xiao loong bao, tasty, thin skin dough, Shanghai noodles dish not greasy, chow niango dish good, potstickers not much filling but not greasy, hot and sour soup did not have much seafood or meat, more tofu, not too spicy. Complimentary Xiao loong bao with $20 order, good deal. Will try again.... More

The venue is small and modest, but the food is delicious, generous portions and the price is honest, it is cheaper than eating at hamburger joints! the place is always crowded, either you reserve or arrive early. They open from 11am to 3pm and from 5pm to 10pm. As usual, most Chinese restaurants in Richmond close early in the evening,... More

Shanghai morning is a fantastic Chinese restaurant in Richmond just opposite the Four Points by Sheraton hotel. Flavors of dishes are authentic and awesome. The portions however are so much bigger than in China, so bring your friends. Great place frequented mainly by Asians which is another proof of excellent quality and taste! Saved my life in Canada.

While staying at the Four Seasons, I pulled up my trusty Trip Advisor App and found this place. I was really looking forward to trying it out. I arrived at about 9:15 PM. Open sign was on. I opened the door and stepped in to look at the menu. I was quickly shooed out by a not so nice server,... More

Food was good but not great. The XLB was the best - good "soupiness" & just right noodle wrapper. Shredded pork with rice cakes was good as was the smoked, crispy fried duck - would recommend. Had the crispy beef roll but it wasn't crispy, but it was good. Also ordered the Mapo Tofu again good, but wife and I... More
