I've lived in Greenpoint for over 20 years, I eat out a lot and I've been to most places, new or old, doesn't matter you name it I've been there. That said Shanghai Lee is the best Chinese food restaurant in Greenpoint, their prices are not the lowest and their portions are not the biggest but when it comes to the quality of food they are the best. What they serve is a "wholesomer" versions of traditional American Chinese food. They do a good job of striking a balance between giving you those familiar flavors sans copious amounts of salt, grease, etc. Don't get me wrong what they serve is not "health food" so it still tastes good but is most definitely a whole lot lighter.

Born & raised in NYC but I live in Florida now. When I come to visit my daughter who lives nearby my second stop is Shanghai Lee. The best!.

We often make the trip over to eat in. The service is great and the food os fresh crisp and always awesome! When we want it at home its better to pick it up on your own. Delivery is always super super slow and the food just isnt as great. :( Will be picking up this evening even in the torrential rain!

I'm a Chinese food snob. While Shanghai Lee is not amazing, it is quality. Very nice owners and very good value. Surprisingly, their fish is delish. It's crispy style but only lightly fried. Total yum delight.

I have been ordering take out and delivery from Shanghai Lee since they opened.....The owners and staff are so nice and try very hard to accommodate me. I am pretty picky and like to eat fresh and healthy! I love the steamed bok choy, broccoli and snow pea mix w/tofu and brown rice (opt.) any sauce on the side that I want. Sometimes on a busy night everyone calls at once and the kitchen gets backed up and the delivery guys get backed up......get over it! The food is delish and overall this is an excellent choice if you're feeling fresh veggies/ingredients or awesome, amazing, fried wontons!

This place isn't gourmet but the ingredients are fresh and well prepared and they are always willing to modify. I get chicken chow fun with Chinese broccoli or add mushrooms. A great value too! Love their wontons!

I've tried most of the Chinese options in this area of Greenpoint and this is hands down the best. Good portions, quality ingredients, prompt delivery.
