Restaurant remains packed. Food remains delicious. Service standard remains high. Only issue is that we may have tried at least 70% of the menu already. Not sure if the restaurant can or willing to come up with more creative dishes.

Food was ok, nothing fantastic, but definitely over-priced, especially eel teppanyaki style, it was absolutely a rip-off. I suspect the eel was frozen rather than fresh, but keep in mind, it was $36.95! This price was supposed to provide fresh eel. If it was fresh,...More

I expected better food since competition is fierce in the Richmond area. Beautiful ambient. A Shanghai restaurant must be able to nail this dish in order to be considered a legit Shanghainese restaurant. This dish is the crystal shrimp. We ordered this dish and I...More

It took 75 minutes from the time I ordered until my meal arrived. Waitress never once came back to let me know my meal would be coming soon or to ask how it was when it eventually arrived. Seems to cater to the Asian crowd...More

A nicely decorated Shanghainese restaurant with a touch of old Shanghai. However, the food was just so-so. The famous Shanghai soup dumplings were average with the wrapper a bit uneven thickness. Other dishes we ordered were a bit oily and salty. MSG was also detected....More
