Finally, a clean restaurant in Chinatown that's cheap too! I ordered the black bean chicken over rice, and it was all right. The chicken was tender, but it was way too salty and saucy. It left me feeling heavy. After hearing rave reviews, I was disappointed.

I absolutely love this place! They have the best soupy dumplings in manhattan, and the best blended red bean ice smoothies (with taipoca) I've ever had. They use real red beans for this drink, not just some artificial mix. I agree with the review above -- the lady with the spiky hair is the best. Whenever we're hungry and want to snack, my boyfriend and I will turn to each other and say "soupy dumplings" or "red bean ice"!!

We enjoy the excitement and activity in Chinatown and we love to eat at the shanghai cafe. The staff is expedient and the food is very good. The crab-meat juicy bun is our favorite.

The best crab-pork soup dumplings in NYC. Fair decor. Decent service. A must try.

This is my favorite Shanghai restaurant in Chinatown. I'm a regular customer there. I go there almost once a week, or once every other week. I go there at least once a month, or I'm going to be physically sick. LOL!! The food is really good. If you're not familiar with Shanghai food, their specialties are the Tiny steam buns, the buns with the pork filling inside is what most people order. It's made fresh, you must try it. The service is pretty good for a Chinese restaurant. Look for the waitress with the spiky hair. She's my favorite waitress there, and she's the friendliest out of them all.
