We had our food delivered to our hotel room. We ordered 4 egg rolls and received 1 packet of duck sauce. The food was good, but we would have been happier with more duck sauce.

I love Shanghai. The people are very friendly and the food is great. I like the sweet-and-sour chicken and their crab rangoon. The sauce is served on the side so you can put on whatever amount you want. You have a great selection of food to choose from, and it's always served to you fresh and hot. The price is... More

I never expect much from Chinese restaurants outside of New York, San Francisco or Boston - wow that sounds snotty! This was very good food in a small town in Kansas. The food was fresh, hkt perfectly cooked,and without s overabundance of sauce sometimes covering Chinese food. I would definitely eat there again

We find ourselves driving through Emporia from time to time and we ran across the Shanghai recently. I get Mongolian Beef whenever I go Chinese and this is some of the best I've ever had. My wife's Chicken Chow Mein was terrific, too. We try to arrange to stop there whenever we're driving through.

Nice place too go with family or spouse, they're not too busy good food. They're busiest during lunch time and almost always busy Friday and Saturday nights. I like to order general T'os chicken, combination fried rice and either empress shrimp. They do have daily specials you can order from.

This was the very first place I ate at when I first visited Emporia. It is our favorite place for Chinese. People are always friendly. Food is always good. Restaurant could use some updating but the cooks are very good. We never leave disappointed or hungry.

This was a pretty typical Asian buffet. May a slightly better selection than some, but nothing really extraordinary. One thing to note is the meal prices. The sign at the door said 4.99 lunch and 5.99 dinner, I was there at 4 pm and ended up getting charged 12.99.

Quiet and quick service. Your usual Chinese menu, but good portions and prompt service. Clean place. Not too busy because we went just past the usual lunch hour.
