I've been going there for lunch for years - maybe four or five times a year. Excellent food, stellar service, with prices that can't be beat. Their hot-&-sour soup is exemplary as is their General Tso's chicken. I've been meaning to try it for dinner to see if it's just as good - but if you're looking for a great lunch for dirt-cheap prices in a clean, classy environment, this is your place!
A Salute to the General – If you are a fan of General Tsos' Chicken, this is the place to go. Huge pieces of very lightly breaded chicken are served in a dark, sweet, spicy sauce. It looks like these are cut from thigh, and that's probably why the meat is so moist but not fatty or greasy. This is the best I have found in either Seattle or Portland. I even stop in now and then and get just an order of this to go (get extra sauce on a to-go order as they tend to skimp).
The other dishes I've had here are average to good, not great. Sungari Pearl has much better overall food, but you'll certainly pay for it. I have always had good service here, although the staff isn't too fluent with the English language...
Excellent! – Shanghai Noble House serves the best General Tso's chicken. In fact, everything we have ordered at this restaurant has been very tasty. Also, the ambience is great for a Chinese restaurant. Service was excellent as well....very attentive.
Great food, so-so service – You simply must try the lettuce wraps.. they have always been my favorite from a menu full of wonderful food. The service, however, has never impressed me. The wait to be seated hs been ridiculous, and the servers difficult to understand and abrupt.
This place cannot be beat for lunch – Their lunch menu is awesome. You get your maincourse, soup, fried rice, noodles, tea all for under $6. String Bean shredded pork is where it is at. This guy I know eats the chicken with the peanuts in it. You know.. Not general tso (which is good there also but $.50 more than the other items) but uhh.. Oh yeah Kung Pao Chicken. That is pretty good also but I stand by my string bean with shredded pork.
Good food. Great service. – We used our entertainment book coupon and decided to give Shanghai a try. We were seated promptly. Our waitress was friendly and fast. She even brought us a free order of green beans because we didn't order any vegtables with our meal!! I had honey walnut prawns. They were pretty good except there was too much sauce for my taste. My husband thought the sesame beef was very good. When we paid they didn't punch our city card but still gave us the discount. For that reason alone I will dine there again.
Best Chinese Food in Portland! – Shanghai Noble House is hands down the best Chinese restarant in Portland. My favorite is the General Tso's Chicken. This is a must-order. The Green Beans are also excellent, as are the fried won ton's. Pretty much anything you order, you can't go wrong. There's a fully stocked bar, with a vast assortment of wines available. The wait staff is always very courteous and quick. This is a must-try restaurant!
Excellent Food and Quick Service – I love this place. We go here for lunch atleast once a week. The service is very nice, and bring you the food very quickly. Very good at remembering faces.
Fast, Easy and Quality Food – The food here is the best value in town. For less than $6 (at lunch) you get tea, hot & sour or egg flour soup (if requested), and a huge entree-- generally more than I can eat. My favorite is the General Tao's chicken because it is actually spicy here. The service could be better, but I can handle the blunt service because it is fast and I can stop for lunch and be out in 20 minutes. I will make special trips just to eat here for lunch.
Do yourself a favor!!! – Best Chinese food in Portland, hands down. Honey prawns are amazing, soups are great, three ingredients, anything with their black bean sauce... we stopped ordering off the menu long ago, and they always prepare whatever we ask for. Never been asked for a tip, because we are always willing to ante up for the outstanding food, atmosphere and service!!!
