A girlfriend of mine intorduced me to this place a few years ago, and I go back as often as I can. Shanghai Garden isn't much to look at, but the service is great and the food is delicious. \r
My favorite dishes are the chicken chow mein (made with hand shaven noodles), and their chicken fried rice (with brown rice). Everything is served family style, and you get plenty to share and take home leftovers. Their Gerneral Tsaos beef is great, and they let you order it to the spicey level you like... If you're looking for something with a specific kind of flavor, let them know! They're great at letting you know what is good as is, and what can be modified to your taste. \r
The service there is always very friendly, and super quick. I love the flavors in all of Shangahi Garden's dishes I have had... every other Chinese restraunt I've been to since just can't match up. \r
As far as cost is concerned, it is a little on the high side, but the quality and quantity of food, along with the great service more than make up for it. \r
Also, if you're going to go during a weekend, or during evening hours, make sure you account for the extra time it will take to find parking, it is very limited in that area.
Pros: fast service, variety of items, great flavor
Cons: a little pricey, bad parking
