Nice little shop, the last dish sounds like a definite summer.

It was fine, billy. Not great, not as good as we could get in SGV, but we were looking for low key and something we couldn't find in Yuma.


We are always searching on Spring Mountain Road (and the side roads from it) for something unique. So good you found it. Vegas is a nice place; the locals have to eat, just like us.


I feel y'all San Antonio ain't a place for good Chinese grub.

Ed  (from Yuma)

Better than Yuma, billy. Normally I would've had Thai,Cathy, but I'd had some medical treatments that left me sensitive to hot spicy dishes. Fortuately, that has gone away, but it was one reason for doing Shanghai in LV.


What a coincidence! I was just in Vegas last week with my wife and we went there too.

We ordered the yam with chinese spinach, which like the asparagus dish, was the mountain yam. This was both of our favorite dish of the night. The crunch of the yam was really nice.

We also got the smoked fish appetizer, which is traditionally served cold, which I like a lot. But, they served it warm and I was puzzled by this, so I asked the manager (maybe owner?) and she explained to us that, since they can't reliably get really fresh fish for the dish, serving it cold runs the risk of making it fishy tasting, so they decided to serve it warm. It was still good, but not what I expected.

We also got the braised fish tails and liked them a lot. That's a classic Shanghainese dish and they do it well!

Finally, we ordered the pork wontons, which we probably shouldn't have. They were ok, but nothing really special.

Glad you found the place, Steve. Odd about the smoked fish. Your overall experience seems a lot like mine.


that last dish sounds so good.

Ed  (from Yuma)

It was, Didi. I'd love an order right now!
