The best Chinese restaurant in the city! Great ambiance, great food, managed by the nicest family! I suggest the best General Tao's chicken, beef and broccoli and my personal favorite....the Shanghai chow Mein! You can't go wrong! Try it! You'll love it!

I really like this place, has a lot of character, unlike many other restaurants downtown. it's cute and cozy, For a Chinese restaurant. the beer selection is really great, and the wine selection is fantastic . The food is delicious, it's getting pricier as time goes on, but still worth it. Service is nice, unpretentious . I recommend the Hot and Sour Soup. ( Amazing ) , the General Tso's Sesame Tofu. and the Mint Noodles .

My co-workers recommended this restaurant to me so I brought my family in for an amazing dinner experience. We enjoyed everything from the welcoming staff right down to the intimate lighting and delicious food. the restaurant quickly filled with happy patrons by the time we were finished dinner at 9pm there was still a line up to get in ! The food is Excellent . a standard higher than most other restaurants in this city ?

I went here for my birthday dinner with my family and boyfriend. Ever since then, we've been going back monthly. This food is amazing,if you like asian/thai inspired dishes, this is the place for you. The prices are just right for the quality. I definitely reccommend this restaurant for a great meal, however friday and saturday nights after 9PM, this place turns into a gay/transexual kareoke bar... so go for an earlier meal.

I was VERY disappointed in this restaurant. To begin the server brought me red wine instead of the white that I had ordered, and not even the same brand. Then I had the spring rolls, which were tasty, but the plum sauce was tepid and did not accompany the spring rolls well at all. Finally our main course came and I was so disappointed! The chicken pad Thai was filled with very large, spongy pieces of tofu, and not a single piece of real chicken. The noodles were terrible and hard, and the entire dish tasted awful! The server advised me that there pad Thai was "different" than other Thai and Asian cuisine restaurants, but having ordered it many times at many different restaurants different was more like dismal. The other persons in my party of 5 had mixed reactions- one noodle dish with vegtables which is their specialty was good, but other dishes had a strange overwhelming smell. To be fair their lichee martinis are to die for and the atmosphere, both the music and the artwork make was beautiful. The waitress didn't charge for the main course, but I still left hungry and dissatisfied. Definitely worth going for a drink there and checking out the amazing artwork that they have for sale- but definitely not for the food!

This has to be the most over-rated restaurant in Ottawa. Do the owners submit the other reviews themselves. My wife and I had dinner at this place and the food left us feeling sick for several days. None of the wonderful flavours of asian food are present in there dishes - which are a sloppy hodge-podge of ill-chosen and poor quality ingredients. Beware of the stinky noodles!

Ottawa’s top Chinese restaurants that really deliver

Ottawa’s top Chinese restaurants that really deliver

The Shanghai is reportedly the pioneer in Chinatown’s restaurant scene. It also wins the race for hippest, hands down. One of the reasons: drag queen China Doll is on hand every Saturday night for one of the city’s top karaoke events. The walls are laden with equally interesting art, and the mixed drinks are a cut above expectations, but you’re here for the food. While the place caters to every taste, vegetarians especially will appreciate such dishes as General Tao’s tofu. Delivery is available till closing, which can be late.
