One of those hungry days when you choose to visit and eat Chinese. Shanghai is a good choice and they can lay claim to being one of the top restaurants in Kampala. Service is good and reasonably efficient. The food was good and one of my part who adores Chinese had no complaints. It helps that there is ample parking... More

Had a business dinner with 7 people. The restaurant was mostly empty. Large selection of food but all came with really standard taste and presentation. Like in many other places, orders are not taken correctly and always need to ask for something 2 or 3 times. At the end, we are told that we cannot pay by credit card!!! Really... More

Fang Fang food is the first Chinese food I tasted in Uganda and its has continued to be the best. The dry-deep fried fish is tasty with the egg fried rice. Chinese food is interesting. Never tasted Chinese food try fang fang. And if you want deliveries at home, They deliver in time.

The food is good but the service is slow. I ate here more than once during my stay in Entebbe and was happy with the quality of the food.

I had diner here and may I say that it was not the best that I have had. I love Chinese food but this was really not to my liking the lamb was not very nice so I don't really think that I will be coming back here.

My colleague and I listened to the waitress' suggestions of eating fish and imperial rolls. The plates arrived and were so plentiful that it could have satisfied three or four more people. My colleague ordered wine and it was actually a good south-african one. The price was absolutely correct for the amount and quality we got.

The colonial-era building is very nice and kept clean. Our first bottle of mid-range French wine was thrown out because the cork had rotted out, and the second bottle would barely usable as vinegar, as tends to happen in this climate. The food came fast. The pork foot appetizer was the only dish with interesting flavor. Everything else was covered... More

Here they cook really chinese food with the subtle flavors unspoiled by trying to adapt to European or international taste. You will notice the dishes are a little different in taste than those you get back home because I believe they have chinese cooks. The blend of spices and ingredients results in some excellent dishes. Try something you have never... More

I visited Shanghai on recommendation from a friend. It wasn't a disappointment! The service is fast and the portions large enough. It has ample parking too. Lovely Chinese food.
