I'VE BEEN EATING CHINESE FOOD FOR 45 YEARS, I TRIED 100'S OF PLACES, BUT THIS IS HEAD AND SHOULDERS ABOVE THE REST..NO OTHER CHINESE FOOD EVEN COMES CLOSE, AND I'VE BEEN TO CHINA,(PEKING) & (HONG KONG)..I LIVE ABOUT 3 HOURS AWAY IN CT..BUT WHEN I AM IN THE MOOD FOR THIS FOOD, I DONT HESITATE TO DRIVE DOWN. NO JOKE, MY FIRST TIME HERE, AS SOON AS THE DUMPLING AND NOODLES HIT MY TONGUE, MY EYES BUGGED OUT!!!!, AND I SAID TO MY DAD, "THIS IS THE BEST CHINESE FOOD I EVER TASTED".. WELL WORTH THE TRIP, WELL WORTH THE MONEY, WELL WORTH EVERYTHING.. MMM..MM..MM!!...UNBELIEVABLE..I NEVER KNEW CHINESE FOOD COULD TASTE SOOOOO GOOOOOD!!..

I recently visited Shanghai Cuisine for a quick bite, as I was in a rush. I was ready to order, but it took the staff about 15 minutes to ask my family what we had decided. The thing is, we had to ask for a server 3 times before one actually took our order! (Our server also seemed to be sick since he was sniffling every 10 seconds.) When our food came, we were disappointed. This wasn't what we expected, not exactly the best meal we had. In the Bean Thread with Bean Curd Soup, I found a hair sticking out of a tofu cube. They probably toyed with their sanitation grade! Horrible service and disappointing food, this is my first and last time dining at this restaurant. Not worth going to!

AUTHENTIC/FRESH/SAFE_[in Chinatown NYC!]

Its not an easy task finding a consistent, fresh, authentic-and well priced CHINESE meal in 'ole Chinatown these dayz. Shanghai cuisine pulls it off. Expect to see the top of the legal food chain during weekday lunch hours, which is almost as good aN indicator [after the actual FOOD..] for this eater/reviewer! [THE PEA SHOOTS ARE WORTH ORDERING-WHEN AVAILABLE]

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
