Just started working in the area, so I found this place on menupages.com. While it's not the worst food I've ever had, it comes as close to a dictionary definition of bland as I've ever eaten. Had the fried dumplings and sesame chicken: each was nearly completely devoid of taste. Even the discount pouch of soy sauce had no taste! It's safe to say I'll be eating elsewhere next time I want Chinese.

The food is so so. Surprisingly, the decor is better than expected. There was a decent amount of people eating there while I was waiting for a table. And people were coming and going while I was eating. So it can't be so bad if people are coming in, right? For sure, there are better Shanghai restaurants in Chinatown and elsewhere.

what's wrong with the chef?

I get take out from evergreen - at first i thought it was very good and a good value, but the last 2 times the portions have been half the normal size. i'm giving them one more try and then going someplace else.

Ignore the typical American Chinese dishes and ignore the bad reviews, because Evergreen offers a great selection of authentic Shanghai cooking. The Pork Shoulder, Braised Lion's Head, and Steamed Juicy Buns are delicious and similar in quality to great Chinatown Shanghai restaurants. The service was friendly and efficient. Remember, just say no to Sweet and Sour...

The food is very good and consistent - not oily like many Chinese restaurants. Been there only for lunch and the service is very fast. Great value for your money.

I ordered takeout from here, and the food was quite poor. the general tso's was sweet when i asked for spicy, and even then it was quite bland. portions were not very generous either.
