Nestled into the heart of Ashfield ?Shanghai Night Restaurant? boasts the best Chinese food this side of? well? Shanghai! At a third of the price you?d expect chow down on eighteen freshly prepared dumplings for just under seven dollars. If you can bring yourself to move on from them, why not try out the house speciality (Nan-Jing duck) or even some spicy Chinese New Year rice cake (luckily served all year round).
Relax with friends and family in this warming environment, but be warned, the dumplings are purportedly addictive.
Yum - always busy but the line moves quickly. The dumplings are great. My favourite entree is the shallot pancakes. Don't go here if you want a long meal and conversation. They're keen to get you in, fed and out again. Really reasonably priced, will keep going back.
Year after year, we just keep going back to Shanghai Night for our noodles and dumplings 'fix'. Their dumplings are simply the best, fresh handmade on premises, tasty and authentic, just like in Shanghai, China. Best of all, you can eat to your hearts contend without eating a hole in your pocket! The best!
This restaurant has both authentic Shanghai and Gongdong food. Not sure where the chef is from. :) Anyway, good food and low price. I like the roasted beef with Shanghai dumplings. Seafood is nice as well. I like the friend baby octopus with eggs and flours. Sometimes it has promotion of "Shanghai Crab". Worth a try.
Considered to be THE place to go in Ashfield for Shanghai food - for good reason too! The handmade dumpling are what it's all about. Pan fried, steamed, boiled, whatever - they're all really good! Also try the sweet and sour noodles, the silver thread rolls and the spring onion pancakes. Great value for money too.
