Shanghai Wonderful Restaurant (Chinese)

Shanghai Wonderful Restaurant (map, 110 – 8380 Lansdowne Road, Richmond, BC, Canada, phone: 604-278-8829) serves authentic and delicious dishes from Shanghai, China. Reservations are a must, and consider going a bit early to avoid the rush. They open for dinner from 5pm to 9:45pm and for lunch from 11am to 2:45pm, closed Tuesdays.

This restaurant is so popular among the Asian community that if you arrive later in the evening you’ll probably find a line-up right out the door. Recommended dishes include the Duck with Taro Coat ($13.95, pictured below), the Deep Fried Tofu with Minced Pork Sauce ($8.88, also pictured below), the Pan Fried Pork Buns ($4.50, pictured below), and the deep fried bread served with condensed milk. Also check out their seafood, especially the crab (market price), as well as their fancy Peking duck, and tasty Lettuce Wrap ($10.95).

The restaurant is only a short taxi ride from the Vancouver International Airport in Richmond, and is close to the soon-to-be completed Canada Line public transport train that will connect Richmond with downtown Vancouver. Once the Canada Line is completed (in 2009), you will be able to walk to Shanghai Wonderful Restaurant from the Lansdowne Station. The restaurant is across the street from the Zellers, Best Buy and the Lansdowne Shopping Mall in Richmond.

    Shanghai Wonderful was like that from 10 years ago. Once I went there at 5:30 pm, and I was told that they were all booked up and the next possible seating would be around 9:00 pm. All those people waiting behind were probably those with reservation already.

    A lot of Chinese restaurants are very bad with booking reservation. They simply overbooked their nights for no reason. I’ve had very bad experience with another restaurant, sunsuiwah, which kept me waiting for > 60 min even with reservation made way in advance.

    Debbie, you have to book if you do not want to wait.

    Went to this one a couple times and was very happy with their food. We had to book in advance, and still end up waiting in queue – It’s just too popular and busy.

    I would like to know if anyone has experienced being refused service – my son and I were in there on Friday and was told they could not serve us as it was too busy – asian people ahead and behind us in line – we are caucasian and was told after being ignored for the first 15 minutes we waited there that we should go now – too busy – too long for us to wait!!!!
