I give this 5 stars because it had great egg drop soup which is the best I've had. The egg rolls were pretty darn good too. I had the green pepper beef, and it was pretty good, although I've had better. The cost was $16, but that included an egg roll, crab rangoon, and the soup.

We ordered online and drove 20 mins to get the food. I was handed one bag and asked if they were sure because we had soups and rice along with appetizers and main dishes. Was reassured that was the only bag. They ran after me with another bag and said that was it. Got home and was missing the five soups. Called and asked for a refund. Was told the manager was on vacation for two weeks so they can?t give a refund but we can drive back and get the soups. The food was very good, but double check to make sure you get your whole order before leaving.

Been going here since 2010, and the food never disappoints. The price may be a bit higher than Hy-Vee, Panda Express, etc., but I'm always willing to pay for quality and freshness. Food is cooked to order, the staff is always friendly, and it's awesome to support local small businesses. Very cool to see how this restaurant has become a mainstay in Waukee!

Our first time at Shanghai was because of a neighbor's glowing recommendation. And it lived up to that praise. My husband loved his sweet and sour chicken. I tried something different for me, chicken egg foo young. Both dishes got rave reviews and I brought half of mine home. The shrimp toast was the best I've ever had.

First time going here ordered beef lo mein and chicken lo mein with 16 crab raccoons and some white rice egg drop soup also The beef lo mein and chicken lo mein is fire very hot very fresh and so was the egg drop soup the crab raccoon not so much it's definitely been reheated very chewy not what I expected this place to be from the reviews it got and then the rice is clumping together I'll even post some pictures but definitely won't be coming back here was not worth 60 bucks and I wouldn't recommend this place


The BEST Chinese in this area, no doubt about it. I?ve been coming here for years, and everything I?ve tried has been amazing. My go to is chicken fried rice or empress chicken. Appetizer is always crab Rangoon, and egg drop soup. The staff here is so friendly, our food always comes out hot and fresh, great amount and quality of food for the price.

Shanghai was so good! All of the meals come with soup (both choices were excellent), a crab Rangoon, and a spring roll. The portion sizes were perfect and the price was decent. The restaurant is pretty busy so don't come in a hurry. The food came out at the perfect pace though so you can enjoy your soup and appetizers before the meal. We will be back again. ?

This has to be the best Chinese Restaurant I have been to. Flavors were amazing, and staff are even better. I believe we had the owners helping serve. This is a must go to if you're visiting or even live in the area.
