“Real Chinese food and most enjoyable”

Shanghai Restaurant
Ranked #237 of 1,226 Restaurants in Pattaya
Restaurant details
Reviewed 15 December 2016

After reading some TA reviews that the Shanghai was the real deal for Chinese food, decided to give a try.

Glad we did as ate there twice and had some most tasty and interesting food. Had the noodles and beef both times, and then went on to try other dishes.

Had beef and peppers and loved it, but the second time, it must have been a different chef as so different and not nearly as good. Had some pork dishes, vegie dishes that were excellent, the only miss to me was the hot and sour soup. It just lacked something and this is one of my favorite soups and I often judge the restaurant on the quality of this soup.

Service was most attentive and helpful. Had the mango pudding dessert and so smooth and tasty. And the lime smoothies or drink was tops, so refreshing.

A bit of a jaunt from Jomtien, but with Grab taxi it wasn't too bad. Grab has such great service and so fast, I am a big fan.

For sure when getting the urge for real Chinese food, I will return to the Shanghai.

Everything we ordered was not nice..
Maybe it is more for actual Chinese people but for our western pallets it was terrible..
Also my friends thai girlfriend found it bland..

For us the best thing was the Chinese beer... That's about it..
Even the fried rice was oily ...

My family and I decided to give this place a try as its near by and getting some good reviews here but were disappointed. The quality of the product is poor and not worth a visit. We had some pork dishes which were nothing but pork fat prepared with minimal attention and left most of it. The squid was tiny and mostly just onions on a hot plate, also not tasty. The shrimp in sauces were not peeled which made eating them very messy. Prices were quite high for the very basic level of food. The Shanghai dumplings are ok but that is about it.
