Came here for my birthday and was very impressed. One of the best porterhouse steaks and wedge salads i've ever had....and I didn't pay a dime. How could I give it less than 5 stars?

best shanghainese food on the peninsula. delicious noodles and dumplings. prices are fair and service is efficient. not much parking in the neighborhood

They serve authentic tasty Shanghainess food. Moreover, they also embody the authentic arrogance of native Shanghai people.I would rather drive 30min more to Chef Zhao Kitchen in palo alto when I want to get Shanghainess food.

This is one of our family's favorite restaurants in the Peninsula! The food is always fresh, authentic and full of flavor. Our favorite dishes are Mongolian beef, chow mein, braised pork with mustard greens, string beans, Shanghai rice cakes and FRIED PORK BUNS. We order from here every week!

Was craving Chinese tonight, a friend recommended Little Shanghai and omg, it was AMAZING!We ordered the Spicy Wonton (unlike anything we have ever had before, ALL the flavors!), Baked Steamed Rice W/ Salted Pork And Veg and their Shanghai Style Chow Mein. Yes, all carbs. But boy oh boy, serve all 3 on one's plate - let the incredible sauce of the Spicy Wonton seep into everything else. Amazing flavors and taste.They are doing take-out only during this unique time. I called in the order and it was ready w/in 15 mins - piping hot. They also give you their famous salted roasted peanuts. They were also so lovely when I picked up - incredibly friendly and welcoming.We can't wait to return to try more of their famous dishes!

I ordered leek with eel today due to my Shanghai coworkers recommendation. It was really good. They also gave me a small box of peanut for free and it was amazing! The peanut is with nori!! Loved so much.

The food is authentic and well-flavored! They give you a lot of food for the lunch specials, and the price is really reasonable, definitely my go-to when I want Shanghainese food.

Lived in Shanghai for many years, and this one taste exactly like in Shanghai! Coming to this restaurant for 6 years already and always good service and food! Recommend to many of my friends. Very friendly to kids. Love this place! Would give 10 stars if possible!
