I went to this place for lunch or dinner take out all the times when I lived in town because unlike other Asian take out joints this one actually delivers flavorful and quality food in addition to great value. I love their spring rolls, BBQ boneless spare ribs, Pad Thai, Sambal chicken, General Tso chicken... the list goes on. The... More

These guys always put a differing variety of very fresh veggies in the cashew chicken, my favorite dish. Orders have always been accurate, food is ready on time for pickup, service with a smile. You do have to request extra rice.

Looking for good, quick Chinese take-out food? This is the place. Easy, fast, and efficient. No fuss, no muss. They are a little tight on their extras (duck sauce, fried noodles, mustard, etc.), and you must rather forcefully ask for the amount you want, but that's my only gripe. Otherwise, this is our family's first call for food to go.

Small restaurant that you could easily miss as it is at the end of a strip and non-descript. However the Chinese food is great. I have only gotten take-out - they are quick. There are only a few tiny tables and they're usually taken by people waiting for their take-out. Have eaten their food many times and it is consistently... More

Shanghai Gourmet serves up some great Chinese and Thai dishes. They have great dishes. One of my favorites is the "Lover's Chicken". Its a small place that seats only 10 people or so. They do a lot of take out and have a great lunch spacial each weekday.

Small little restaurant with about 6 tables. Many people take out food I noticed while I was dining. The food was fresh and really very good. I had the Singapore noodle and my friend had curry chicken. I would go back tomorrow!

We've tried several take-out places and our old reliable ones have become disappointments. Shanghai Gourmet is still on top when it comes to quality take-out. You can eat in as well.

It was a stereotypical takeout chinese food place with overly greesy food. I was hoping to find a solid restaurant that I could call my go-to place, but was so disappointed. We decided to eat in the small restaurant, which was a mistake. I didn't have much expectations and it still didn't meet them.
