“Very tasty Noodles but Terrible Wait Staff”

We went to Shang's once again using a Groupon which was a very good deal. As usual, their noodles were very tasty--the Laksa Malaysian Noodles came with a lot of mushrooms, beansprouts, and squid with some chicken pieces and half a soft boiled egg. I always enjoy the broth.
With the Groupon, 2 bowls of noodles, a small bowl of 6 wontons with sweet soya sauce were tasty but one of the wonton filling (pork) was raw and undercooked so I had to send it back. They did bring us another order where the filling was now cooked. Bad to eat undercooked pork! The Groupon also included 2 cans of soft drinks and 2 little mango desserts. We also ordered the Miso bbq pork noodles and again, the broth was very tasty.

The food at Shang's is very good and reasonably priced but it's the waitresses that are the weak point. A few of them are unfriendly and when Groupon is used, they treated us like 2nd class citizen. In addition, they expected a huge tip when the service was terrible. I don't believe we should tip 20% when the service is undeserving!

Replace the wait staff with attentive servers and ones that don't sneer at Groupon users and with the existing tasty noodles, Shang's has potential in this very competitive market in Richmond BC.

Still inexpensive and still having good food. We had some enjoyable dim sums and ja-jiang-mian. So loving it that we will be coming back again :)

A group of us dined here on a groupon offer and found the food to be very tasty and plentiful. The service was outstanding and the restaurant very busy. They offer free parking nearby with a parking pass. The chicken wings are divine with a garlicky flavour.

For inexpensive dining, try Shang noodles. Everything are generally under $10. I think you top up a dollar or so for the special stuff. Wife brought Groupon deals and we had a blast with friends.

Close to Richmond Center, just off #3 Road, this Shang Noodle House is a good alternative for an inexpensive dinner. Their noodle bowls are generally under $10, tho the special ones are a $1 more. We took advantage of a local groupon deal and got some spicy wontons (very good), fried chicken wings (very good and fresh), two bowls of noodles and a green tea dessert. I had the red reishi mushroom noodle soup which was very very good. My spouse had the Prawn, scallop, chicken spinach noodle in pork soup noodle which was very good but the soup stock was a bit bland Their Bubble Tea with the dinner is only $3 for a large serving.

Parking on the street may be possible if you go late, like maybe after 8:30 pm. (They close at 10 pm). Service was very efficient and personable. I would go again, even without a groupon coupon.
