I had a carry out order of sesame chicken and a egg roll: it was delicious! It was ready when they said it would be (we were in and out quickly) and it was still hot when I got home (I live 15 minutes away). Shanghai is the best Chinese restaurant in Durham! I highly recommend it!

Mild flavors. Prices are ok. Noodles in the curry noodles soup has a good texture but the flavor is too plain for my liking. Most dishes on menu seem to be basic Americanized Chinese food.

Semi fine dining Asian cuisine. I would recommend trying the tea, generous portion and it is very good. No buffet but they give you plenty of food.

By far the best Chinese food I have had in Durham. I read the reviews and was skeptical but this is my third time visiting the restaurant and trying something different each time and it was delicious every time. I have saved their number in my phone as best Chinese and will continue to go.

cozy restaurant. i was in the mood for beef chow fun, and a quick google search turned up this place. got there, very unassuming place from the outside, but the inside was packed full of people, plus people coming and going for delivery orders. all of the waiters were hustling for the entire time i was there, but they were still able to be extremely attentive to my needs.
the meal came with a complimentary pot of hot tea, and i quickly forgot how much i had been looking forward to the chow fun. the tea was very good, maybe just slightly paler than black tea, sweet (maybe with sugar or honey because the tail end of the tea didn’t have the acrid flavor that black tea sometimes gives rise to, just a slight enjoyable astringency) with a kind of floral taste that reminded me at times of dried fruits like raisins, apricots, or figs but i couldn’t put my finger on which. i eventually drank the whole pot, and only ate half of my chow fun (which admittedly came in a giant portion). the chow fun was very good, and tasted exactly the way i wanted. i took the rest of my portion home for lunch today, but i barely made it through my front door before going back to finish it off.
will be back again
