The restaurant was busy, but we got in with no wait on a Saturday evening. My wife and I both got the Szechuan Vegetables. Quick service and good food.

We had a nice lunch downtown at Shanghai Mama’s. I had crispy chicken on rice, and with a little soy sauce it was quite tasty. Other family members had spicy cashew chicken and noodles & dumplings. Pricing is not bad and food good.

I came here for lunch with some colleagues. There's a large variety of food on the menu and it is impressively inexpensive for the quality and quantity you get. I recommend this place for lunch.

From what my colleague said, it used to be an amazing place but since their last chef left, it has reduced from amazing to good. From my experience, I would still rate it in "very good" category. Food: I've been here twice and ordered some...More
