If you are looking for good Chinese food in Durham, this is the place. We ate here several times and also ordered takeaway (call and food is ready 10 to 15 mins later). The name Shanghai is misleading. The food is not Shanghainese, as far...More

Stopped in this restaurant hoping for a buffet. Unfortunately, it was a sit down meal. The menu was a little confusing, but finally figured it out. The food was good, and the price reasonable.

The title says it all. We had tofu vegetable soup for two. It's big enough for four. We also opted to split a shrimp stuffed eggplant dish. It was great. Ample quantity. Excellent Quality. Serving in. Black Bean sauce. Mmmmm. All this for $20.

We go here for lunch every six weeks or so. We've never had a bad dish. Tea is complementary. Service is great. Wish the menu had a little more detail about the ingredients in the dishes. Can upgrade to white meat chicken for $1.00, something...More

We've visited this place many times (both dine in and take out) and have never been disappointed. Each dish has been flavorful and portions are generous. Can certainly split an entree if you also get an appetizer. Shanghai has become our go-to Chinese restaurant in...More

Their website says you can order via GrubHub, which I believe is a food delivery service.

Shanghai Chinese Restaurant has been in operation since the early 1980s and is currently owned by the Wong family. Chef Ah Lack Wong and his staff serves Durham not only the typical American Chinese dishes, but also the traditional Cantonese delicacies one may find in Hong Kong or mainland China. So come and enjoy a authentic meal at Shanghai located right beside Kroger in a shopping center on Hillsborough road in Durham, North Carolina.
