As this place has regretfully closed since I last ate here, this (posthumous) review is mostly for my own records.

Came here for a friend’s birthday to feast at a particular local favorite of his.  As is typical for Chinese restaurants there is a particularly large menu that can be rather difficult to navigate, but my friend did have a very particular set menu he adhered to that he considered of good quality (in his opinion, which I respect greatly).  Deviating from this set menu led to mixed results.

Of the food we ate most were fairly staple Shanghainese dishes, like shenjianbao, shepherd’s purse rice cakes, braised pork.  I didn’t catch quite everything we managed to eat but everything was quite tasty and authentic in my eyes.  

It’s a bit of a shame that they’re now closed since the food did have legit offerings, but it seems the location has swiftly changed hands so hopefully whatever takes its place does equally good food at a good price.

Love the pan fried pork buns and the noodles.  Some of the vegetable and tofu dishes are good, too.

My recollection of this restaurant involves decent food, if not above average, and large portions at reasonable prices. During my recent visit, I found their food to be slightly uninspiring. We ordered the following:

Fuqi feipian – larger than typical slices make this both too much of a mouthful to enjoy and visually unappetizing

Fish fillet with green vegetables – plentiful amount of fish, however, under seasoned

Lamb with green onion – this dish was the standout and was the first to be finished

Parking in abundance as the larger parking lot accommodates customers for all the businesses in the shopping center. Don’t expect a lot of help from staff as English is not their first language. Also, they’ve gone with printed menus and no longer have their laminated menus with photos to help you choose.

In hoping that the kitchen had an off day, I’ll revisit at a later time as it’s usually a good backup plan in case the more popular neighboring restaurants are packed.

I think 3.5 stars is not unfair, but bumping up a little because every dish was at least OK, and they were reasonable and convenient.  The best dishes were probably the XLB’s and the fried XLB’s.  The onion pancake was also pretty OK.  Fried gluten fish was interesting and pretty good.  Basic chicken was pretty good with some wood ear mushrooms in it.    Would be OK to eat there again, but wouldn’t necessarily look forward to it.  I probably would prefer to go to Taiwan Porridge next door given the option (and that place is more of a cafeteria style).

TL;DR: They served unfresh food. Not sure if that’s intentional (for cost saving) or just an oversight, but that’s unacceptable.

Full review: The first impression when my family got in was bad ventilation, stuffed air. We ordered the fried juicy pork bun, xiao long bao, pork chop noodle soup and green onion pancake. We noticed a minor sour taste in the pork bun and xiao long bao, which both use minced pork. It was subtle but i confirm it wasn’t my imagination when I overhear our next table mentioned the same thing. Other food was ok but my wife thought the pork chop was also unfresh but I didn’t try that.

Could it be the high temperate in the store that catalyzed food turning bad and the chef wasn’t aware? I don’t know but regardless serving spoiled meat is unacceptable.

A lot of Chinese restaurants start out really good, then they got complacent, then quality and service go down.  Unfortunately this restaurant also falls into this category.  Today I called to order something for takeout, the lady who picked up the phone hang up on me three times, and when she finally picked up, she was rude.  A big probability is that she is busy, which is quite understandable, but she is also impatient, which is not a quality to have when taking phone orders.  So here is the one star and I hope their management can pay some attention.

Solid thick noodle stir fry and their fish tofu is nice. Beef with mushroom is good in portion but lacking the fragrance and aroma like the Cantonese style meat stir fry.

Weekends they have soy milk.

We used to get their Shanghai sweet and sour style fish fillet and now the price seems a bit steep, not even for a whole fish.

I haven’t been to Shanghai Garden for some time with the pandemic, so I was looking forward to coming with my friends.  One of my Chinese friends had never been here and said she was very particular.  The food was even better than I remembered, and the portions were very large.  We had a feast!  We got both of the juicy dumplings, sweet and sour spareribs. General Zhou tofu, green beans, and fried fish with seaweed.  I would recommend all of them and am looking forward to going back soon!

It was a Saturday night, and they allowed me to make a reservation for 4 which they haven’t done before.  The restaurant wasn’t crowded and I didn’t need the reservation.  Please visit them and support them!

I have been a customer of Shaighai Garden since they opened. The food is good, the price is reasonable. What is not to like?  
Today, we ordered five dishes and the sesame pancake for takeout. After we got home, we realized there were only four dishes. A cold appetizer of bean curd with vegetable was not in the bag. We called them right away, they told us they don’t have that special vegetable today. But they defintely charged us for that dish. They told us they will give us that dish next time when we visit??? My husband was talking to them on the phone, I couldn’t understand that ridiculous suggestion. What do you mean by that? What do we provide in order to get that dish next time we visit? First of all, they didn’t appogize for not telling us that the dish is not available, then they didn’t appologize for charging us for the non-existing dish. Then they offer the ridiculous option of giving us the dish next time visit? After I my husband put down the phone, I asked him to call back, and demand to have the money returned to our credit card. After we insisted, the returned the money. They should have done that in the first place. Do they understand how to do business in America? I am not sure I will go back to this place ever again.
