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.

Very busy, very popular restaurant. Must arrive early or prepare to wait in line. Staff take your order quickly and waiting time for food is generally pretty quick too. The Peking style pork with pancakes is a must! So tasty, saucy and sticky!! The dumplings are also very good.
You'll find an establishment with every variation of Shanghai in its name along the Ashfield food highway - Shanghai Night, New Shanghai, New Shanghai Night... and for something different, Taste of Shanghai across the road. We visited Shanghai Night one weekday afternoon and despite there only being other two other tables of diners, service was a little slow and somewhat abrupt. However, the on-site made dumplings are tasty and very reasonably priced.
Another house for dumplings, similar to the other dumpling places on the main Ashfield strip this place has better noodles and seafood dishes for late night dinners. Service is as per normal, less interations and faces that seems unfriendly, however we did enjoy the food and mainly the dumplings. Come early to avoid waiting for a table and staff rushing around, 5pm-7pm is a good time to dine.
