Grilled chili chicken!

Finally! Great Chinese takeout, or eat-in, in Brooklyn. Since discovering this little gem, we've stopped going into our really good place in the East Village. The chef at Shanghai Lee is talented and dedicated to clean, fresh and delicious. The chile noodles are really good, the rices are all non-greasy, the vegetables and tofu entrees are fresh and the sauces are a perfect blend of savory, sweet, and spice. Service is prompt and thoughtful, with little extras, such as tea, a cute dish of peanuts, and for dessert, a carved blood orange. Any bad reviews of this restaurant are confusing it with the poor Chinese by the same name on Franklin. One try and you will suddenly be finding you're eating Chinese a whole lot more often!

we just got delivery....the food was no good. skimpy amount, flavorless. definitely not impressed, and won't be ordering again.

I've lived in Greenpoint for eight years now, and I am kicking myself for never having tried Shang Hai Lee until today. The food is excellent. The service is incredibly friendly. They have both Chinese and Thai food. I will never order from another Chinese aside from Shang Hai Lee again.

above average for NYC, 5 stars for greenpoint/williamsburg/ and anywhere not Brooklyn Chinatown. the nice part is that, unlike most chinese takeout/delivery places, meat dishes aren't 95% vegetables and the vegetables don't taste like plastic.

Honestly-- they uses the freshest ingredients, and offer interesting dishes aside from your basic Chicken and Garlic Sauce. I am obsessed with the Manchurian Chicken and they let you substitute with Lamb?! This is high end, quality Chinese food... at long last.

Basically, this is great Chinese food...very fresh and flavorful and bridges the gap between more high end Chinese food and excellent take-out style Chinese without the grease and 'mystery meat' aspect. Also the portions are generous but not to generous to make you regret the lump in your stomach from other Chinese eateries that make you regret 'polishing off' the entire portion....it's all about quality over quantity. But again, it will definately fill your body. With my 6 foot frame and huge appettite it also takes care of business for me. So if you want the 'umph' from Chinese food go down and sit-in and eat or have it delivered from a very professional, curtious, and prompt delivery man who also looks to be the owner. When my Mom came in town, the hostess took a little time to explain the great half oranges that they serve when you dine in. When you dine out, make sure they give you those little chinese pickles and sometimes they may even send some pineapple. I personally like the half Peking Duck which is served with fresh and think slices cucumber, a dark seat sauce and mooshoo-esque pancakes. You have to try this place.
