I like the duck soup and Vietnamese pancake. My wife likes the hot and sour soup and the chicken that is roasted and fried.

I had finished some appointments in Memphis, figured I would grab a bite to eat before I drove the 100 miles back home. The sign advertised Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese food. The place looks a little faded, dull and dingy from the outside, but for once I am glad I put aside my fears and decided to eat there!. The... More

The options can be overwhelming and demand a number of visits, but always worth the trip and your hard earned money. The service is friendly and grants a home style feel. The food... More

With a boatload of options from standard Chinese fare to Vietnamese and Thai dishes, this longtime family-owned restaurant is a top choice in a neighborhood with stiff competition. Don't skip the appetizers, they are the highlight of Shang Hai and shouldn't be missed! The Cheese Crabmeat Wontons are the best (and cheesiest) around and one order is enough for 2-4... More
