Be prepared to wait for a long time to receive your food. They never bring the food at the same time even if you request them to do so. It took 45 minutes from the first dish for the last dish be delivered, when we complained, we were told that we should have just ordered dumplings instead! Wonder who the... More

Sadly disappointed as the restaurant did not live up to its glowing reviews. Food was average and no more. Chose a soup and two of the signature dumpling dishes. The soup and and steamed pork dumping were average/OK but the crab and pork fried dumpling was so oily I could only eat half the plate. On the positive side the... More

It's Sunday so we have had a bit of a wait outside but it was totally worth it. The Wonton soup is delicious and the dumplings are excellent. Looking forward to coming here again to try other stuff from the menu.

I had been here before so we decided that the food wasn't worth the wait, walked down the road to the Peking Duck restaurant got a table for 9 even though they were busy, and had... More

This is first time I have been to this Ashfield branch, apart from their Chatswood Restaurant. The service is always attentive and the food was served fairly quickly, the taste is great the same as the other New Shanghai Chinese Restaurant. Highly recommended when you are visiting Ashfield.

My coworkers brought me here every time we needed a break after a long week and I am absolutely grateful that they did! There is usually a line up to get in and I now understand why! The dumplings are always ridiculously fresh and the prices are very reasonable, especially when split among friends. Usually we order a number of... More

I read a lots of good reviews before booked dad's birthday. We had 5 people and had very small table. The next table was vacate and asked if we could combine the table together. But has been informed no. The service was below average, most of the food has been dumped on the table without any service, because of the... More

Given the number of Shanghaiese restaurants in Ashfield, the fact that I gre up in Shanghai and live in Ashfield, calling this one the best is not random. This is based on two years of sampling and rating the following factors: - signature Shanghai dishes (eg xiao long bao, sheng Jian bao, crispy fried noodles, etc) - non Shanghai dishes... More

Came here to get some takeaway the beef and coriander were very tasty. Rainbow steak was good but went a bit soggy when should be crispy, would love to come back and eat in. Staff were friendly and service was fast.
