We went to the Shanghai River restaurant last night for dinner and reserved for 6 o'clock. The restaurant was packed and we waited a good 15 to 20 minutes before being shown to a table.

The wait was worth it… We had spring rolls, hot and sour soup, noodles and of course the pork dumplings. All were great. The restaurant is of course noisy and bustling but great.

Yum! Great place for Shanghai food. Had the Dan Dan and it was one of the best I have had. Also had the dumplings which were excellent. Filled with delicious pork and juice.

since moving to Richmond over a decade ago we've always noticed that the Shanghai River has experienced a brisk business. Such is the case today however gone are the long queues of patrons waiting on the sidewalk to be admitted. Both the food and service are still great but gone is the din of families with youngsters. A much more pleasant restaurant to dine.

Indeed great food, all around, some restaurant are great at one dish but not at another, this one is good all around with everything we ordered, and we ordered a lot. Especially the steam pork dumplings, it's hard to get them good, and these guys got them pretty darn good, one of the best around, Ding Tai Fung level, will definitely go back

All the dishes we had seemed quite fresh and were tasty, except a couple of them were a bit too salty. We had quite a range of items, including jellyfish, squid, diced chicken, braised chicken, s & s pork, fried rice, chow mein, string beans with chilli, duck with lettuce wrap, shrimp and bean curd. I would recommend the spicy beef and honey dish as well as the black cod with spicy minced pork, but ease off on the salt on the latter.
Dishes were not generous, but not overly small. Visual appeal was good.

Service was adequate and it was pleasant to be served with a bit more care and class rather than have the dishes and drinks dumped onto the table with a clatter as many Chinese restaurants tend to do.

I believe there is free parking for patrons.

I would come back with the family.
