My favorite Chinese food in Durham. Friendly staff and fast service. We used to get take out and thought it was good. We finally came and ate in the store and wow, It was even better somehow. Very fast and delicious if you eat in. We’re vegan and find plenty of delicious options. My favorites are the Sesame Tofu and Vegetable Lo Mein. Don’t forget to grab a couple Vegetable Spring Rolls and some sweet iced tea!

I have been going to this restaurant since 1989. It is solid and never disappoints. Their daily lunch special is $8.99 and there are about 30 choices. There is a note on the front door: "If you see anyone begging for money, please let us know. We will feed them."

Food is definitely worth the five stars. Sure it could use nicer restrooms and a touch of updates but I’m rating the food. I’ve been coming to this place for more than 25 years. Same awesome food and same great service.

Shanghai is, without exception, the best Chinese restaurant in the state of NC. They always remember regulars and welcome new patrons with open arms. The food is second to none and it can be made how you like it (e.g. - white meat only, extra sauce, spicy, with or without this or that, etc). The staff is friendly and attentive. They'll get busy for dinner but that's just because everyone wants a taste!

Quick service. The food is pretty good, priced appropriately with good portions. Hot and sour soup was very nice and came with fried chips of some kind. My only complaint was the fried rice seemed like regular white rice tossed unevenly with soy sauce. Still very happy with my order though.

A friend of mine introduced me to this place. I will say this you must try the salt and pepper pork chop. Most delicious Chinese dish I have every had. The fried rice was also excellent. I also had to tofu dish which was not bad. Service was good, and fast.

I ordered the Jumbo Shrimp with Scallions in tangy spicy sauce and it was so good! It was spicy with a hint of sweet. My son order the tangy chicken and he loved it. My daughter limed the shrimp fried rice. My son is so picky about his food and I was so happy he tried something new and loved it. We will be definitely be going back!!

Great value place. Visited it for first time after car broke across the street. I've been in may Chinese restaurants and this one exceeded my expectations. The fried rice special was only 8.99, big enough for two meals with lots of meat on it and a great flavor. Also, the service was fast and nice. That the place was packed around 2pm says a lot about their business, they may be doing something well. Recommended!
