My review for Shanghai Kitchen – If you’re just looking for a quick non authentic Chinese fix to curb your cravings, then I would say this restaurant offers some comforting food to fix that. This place serves mainly western Chinese dishes, but there is also a small menu serving Filipino food as well.
I had a craving for prawn dishes so I decided to get the steamed prawn dumplings. This order had 8 dumplings, which was more than enough. The dumplings, or as what some people here call it, “momos,” were juicy with a lot of meat on the inside. I loved how it was all 100% steamed, since I find fried dumplings to be overly oily.
The prawn with black bean sauce was a bit too oily and having this with a side dish if rice, it made it a bit better. The black bean sauce was not as good as the authentic dishes that I have at real Chinese places. The prawns were small but they were cooked well throughout.
This restaurant deserves a rating of 3.5/5.
I ordered the prawn dumplings for 24DHS and the prawn with black bean sauce for 32DHS.
The pricing of the dishes here was inexpensive and affordable.
The service that I received here was quick and the staff members were easy to deal with when it same to ordering.
The ambience of this restaurant was clean but the decor was outdated.
