The menu of Chinese cuisine under the direction of the talented chef is great at this place. You can order good spicy pork, noodle soups and soup dumplings. The unique characteristic of this restaurant is serving tasty green pancakes, rice cakes and doughnuts. Get your meal started with delicious wine. When visiting Little Shanghai, it's a must to try great tea or good americano.

At this place, you can order food as a takeout. But the general rating for this spot isn't high on Zomato.

This place is a gem and the food are so yummy! I love the Shanghai style chow mein. It was so good and flavorful! This was my favorite dish from this place. I also had the green onion pancake but found that it wasn't as crispy and had too much flour. I loved the xiao long bao and it was so yummy. However, they were lacking soup..
Very good and authentic food with consistent quality...feels so at home with the friendly local Shanghainese waiter as well.
Little Shanghai is just that. A small restaurant serving standard Shanghai dishes. The xiao long bao are pretty good as are the lion head meatballs. The chow mein noodles seemed a little under cooked. The prices are modest. The service is mixed. Mostly the staff is friendly and helpful but one waitress on our most recent visit, while we were eating, asked us to change tables so she could seat a larger party. Of course, any lover of authentic Chinese food is fully accustomed to surly and rude servers. Well worth a visit if you happen to cruising El Camino Real and have an appetite for decent northern Chinese food.
