Ashfield, also known as ‘Little Shanghai’ between locals, is home to among other things the famed ‘New Shanghai Chinese Restaurant’. The eatery boasts a devoutly loyal clientele base, and it’s not hard to understand why once you catch a glimpse of their menu. Jam packed with tasty traditional Chinese foods such as pork buns, dumplings, deep fried crab or tofu (for the vegetarian in all of us) it also doesn’t break the bank.

The decor set up to reflect a Shanghai dining experience, with a couple of rooms with plenty of seating. The service is efficient to ensure the wait for a table is not too long.
The drinks menu is varied, with cocktails, beer, an decent wine list and spirits as well as a number of non alcoholic beverages. We sampled a cumquat andread more
i looooveee dumplings and New Shanghai is definitely the place to satisfy those cravings. They have an incredible range of different flavours suitable for all taste buds. The decor immerses you into a scene of Shanghai streets, which makes the experience a touch more authentic.
Unbelievable how long the wait was - but I now know what all the fuss was about - wow! Recently moved to the area with my family and was recommended to eat here by friends. Food was delicious and the family really had a great time in the back area (seemingly less noise?)
