All the dishes we had seemed quite fresh and were tasty, except a couple of them were a bit too salty. We had quite a range of items, including jellyfish, squid, diced chicken, braised chicken, s & s pork, fried rice, chow mein, string beans with chilli, duck with lettuce wrap, shrimp and bean curd. I would recommend the spicy... More

This place is always full so we made reservations for Sunday DimSum. It does not have the carts so you order off the DimSum menu. We had three types of dumplings, sweet soy milk, green onion cakes and fancy glutinous rice. Apparently we missed out by not ordering the Chinese donuts because all the other tables had them. Next time!... More

Located half a block from the Marriott and Sheraton this place has a reputation for excellent food and service. It delivers! And you'll get comfortable chairs and table cloths but the price is moderate. Service can't be beat and the food helps you forgive all the rain outside.

We tried to get in last time, but couldn't. We were lucky this time since we got there right at the time they opened. The parking was great. We liked there dim sum as well as some of the dishes like shrimp fried rice, beef stew, spicy chicken and wonton soup. Have to say, the price was not cheap, but... More

I've resided in Richmond for over a decade and the Shanghai River is the only restaurant that I've noticed that has been consistently busy. The service is always cordial and courteous and the menu items always arrive in a timely manner. Definately a warm restaurant to enjoy a repast.

This place gets pretty crowded, be sure to call ahead to make a reservation. Ordered the 3 appetizer combo and smoked duck. Food was excellent with reasonable prices (especially coming from the US with the current exchange rate). Service was attentive.

We ordered pork and shrimp dumplings, green onions pancakes, long donuts, chicken and wine sauces, pork belly noodles. Dishes were all really good, service was awesome. They weren't inexpensive but the ambience, food quality and service made our lunch very satisfying.
