My girlfriend and I tried this new (to us) Shanghai restaurant that is out of the way from the famous restaurant streets in Richmond. It’s situated in a strip mall behind Richmond Centre on Park Road. We made a reservation just 10 minutes before we drove to the restaurant, and they were able to accommodate us for the evening. In fact when we arrived, there were quite a few seats unoccupied.
The food came fast, we tried the beef roll. It wasn’t bad, but would have liked it with more sauce.
And like at all Shanghai restaurants, the steamed pork dumplings are the soul of Shanghai food. The pork dumplings here are juicy and hot. It wasn’t the best, but it was good.
The pan-fried dumplings were also very good. Not too much juice, but a fair amount and the bottom was crispy and not over burnt. Pan-fried to perfection.
The wonton chicken took quite awhile to come, we had to remind them a few times and maybe of the waiting, I had somewhat of an expectation from this dish. The wonton soup had half a chicken and numerous wontons in it (around a dozen). And the broth is boiled right from the chicken. The wonton on the whole was very good. However, the soup could have been clearer. It tasted more like a vegetable soup than a chicken soup. I’d prefer Long’s Noodle House wonton chicken over this one. But for almost half the price, I can’t complain.
The bill came to under $32 for 2, not including tips. Overall, I thought the prices were on the cheap side for Shanghai restaurants in Richmond. And the quality wasn’t bad. It was just a little out of the way. The ambiance could use some work. And service was good. So if you’re looking for an alternative to Shanghai food in Richmond, consider this one.
