“Best prices in town for somewhat authentic Chinese food”

Shanghai Restaurant
Ranked #322 of 1,016 Restaurants in Pattaya
Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

This restaurant is a mixed bag. They've got a wide variety of Chinese food offerings including noodles, dumplings, Sichuan dishes, and Shanghai dishes. But the quality is not going to impress people used to eating in Hong Kong, Singapore, or San Francisco. There is a lot of inconsistency too. On the Sichuan dishes, sometimes the same dish will be served with Sichuan peppers and sometimes not. In general the flavors are not entirely authentic. But the prices are really low for decent enough Chinese food in Pattaya. So, yes,it's worth going to.
My favorite dishes include the firm tofu w/ pork, the Shanghai cold chicken in rice wine, the spicy Sichuan noodles, the beef stew soup with noodles, the YuShiang eggpant, the Sichuan spicy fried chicken, the stir fried cauliflower. I think their xia long bao (soup filled dumplings) is mediocre. Their vegetable stuffed bun is quite poor, full of sugar. Their mapo tofu is not great either.

Reasonably priced Chinese food. Our order was served quickly. Food tastes average but the xiaolongbao tasted really great.

Went because of reviews and felt like a change from Thai food. The sping rolls and home made noodles, together with the fruit salad shrimp were delicious.
A bit like a cafe more than a restaurant, very bright lighting, but good air conditioning. Go elsewhere for a romantic dinner, come here for the food

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.
