Combo Chow Mein and War Wonton soup. Both have a good mix of chicken, shrimp, beef and quality veggies. Good stopover when you are passing by Santa Cruz. Very standard Chinese cuisine!

The menu is extensive, and most of the specials are really special: things you never see at Chinese restaurants outside of China. The service is good, and the decor a step above many other places. The various clay pot dishes are my favorite, but the whole menu is great.

Upon our late arrival in Santa Cruz we seem to find ourselves at this establishment for won ton soup as well as other delights. We have eaten in the dining room and taken food to go back to the motel. Never been disappointed

Whenever we come back from a long trip, we go first to Shun Feng for excellent Chinese food. We have the habit of overordering, so we can take some home for lunch the following day. We like the shrimp with tofu, the Mongolian beef, the BBQ Pork appetizer, the beef with green beans, and MuShu of any kind. Hong Kong... More

I stand by their soups as an absolute cure for the common cold. All their food is delicious, fresh and healthy. Dine in or take out, it's high quality Chinese!

We visit this area about twice a year. We have never been disappointed with our meals. Soups have even cured a head cold! Service is always friendly.

The food was okay. We ordered vegetarian options (tofu) instead of chicken. The sweet and sour tofu chicken was decent, but had a weird ketchup-like taste to it. The garlic and eggplant tofu chicken tasted sour. I was visiting the area, saw the place convenient to shops, and decided to try it. The owners/waitress were nice and friendly and the... More

Unlike many other cities and towns on the North American West Coast, Santa Cruz, CA, is not a hotbed of innovative Chinese cuisine. With the exception of O'Mei, an expensive, not entirely family-friendly restaurant, the majority of Santa Cruz's Chinese restaurants are ghastly. One wonders how they manage to stay open. In this sea of abomination, Shun Feng shines in... More

This place was simply awful! Four of us ate there and the adults couldn't eat the food! And the younger lady running the restaurant was rude to guests. I don't know what else to say but avoid this place!
