Some of the best Shanghai dishes served in NYC and great service

Typical Chinatown atmosphere and amazing food.

My husband and I just got back from another eating weekend in NYC (we go several times a year) and this time tried the New Yeah Shanghai as a change from our usual Nice (New) Green Bo. We had the soupy dumplings with pork and crab meat and the friend salt and pepper shrimp. Both were very good, although the dumplings were not up to Nice Green Bo standard. We did enjoy the shrimp quite a bit and found some other items on the menu that we really wanted to try (not to mention all the tasty items we saw other diners eating) so the New Yeah Shanghai is definitely going on the list for next time as well. Atmosphere is quiet and a little more inviting than the usual hectic Chinatown establishment.

When they get the small things right you know the big things are going to be right. Chef makes the best rice pancake in New York: supple but not sticky, tender so it won't break. The spicy cabbage is the perfect balance of hot and sweet and the portion falls off the edge of the rectangular plate. My personal favorites: shanghai pan fried noodles, spicy ox tongue and tripe, cuttle fish w/salt & pepper, mu shu pork, hot & sour soup, pork shoulder in honey sauce.

I just cannot believe I had such a unpleasant meal in this restaurant. I've been there a couple of times. Even though the service was not perfect, the food reminded me of my hometown. So I took a friend there tonight. After we finished the dinner, we sat there and chatted a bit. We didn't leave right away just because there were not many customers and we thought that sitting there wouldn't hurt their business. However, the restaurant owner walked over and stood one table away from us and "said" to us "You gonna pay first!" in a very rude and unpleasant manner. He didn't even walk to our table and talk to us face to face in a polite way that usually you would expect. I just couldn't believe he behaved like that and treated his clients this way. After we paid, we complainted to him that he shouldn't have treated the clients like that. His excuse was that he's going to close his accounting book for tonight but he was still resistant to say sorry to us! I am very upset at the way he talked and the service they provided to us and I won't go there any more. I just hope that no other people would experience what we did tonight as all the customers deserve a pleasant and relaxing meal.

They never fail to please. Consistently good and reasonably priced. I like to bring out of town guests here.

Don't mess with the menu here. A casual look at the diners will reveal how serious Yeah Shanghai is about its presentations. Nowhere will you find mustard greens or scallions that taste as if fresh picked from the garden. The pork is superb, the poultry and fish and sea food as well but all are accompanied with a perfectly cooked and seasoned vegetable. And a single grain of salt or drop of hot oil is in excess of the perfect balance chef has endowed the course with.
