Shanghai Cafe is no doubt my family's favorite for a decade now. My kids love their corn soup, hand shaven noodles, stir-fried Shanghai rice cake, and garlic spinach. My husband and I enjoyed more exotic dishes like hot spicy beef tendon, drunken chicken, yellow leek with bean curd, and spicy vinegar shrimp. Their orange beef and general tso's chicken are very tasty. If you like casserole, all their selections are wonderful with big portion, perfect for sharing. It's a family owned restaurant and the service is always great!

From Business: Shanghai Shanghai serves an amazing array of carefully-prepared Shanghai and Chinese entrees. Our extensive menu offers everything from fried crab to orange chicken…
One of the measures of skill in a Chinese restaurant's cook is Hot and Sour soup...and this place has the best in the area!. Some places make it too thick, and/or use rep pepper flakes to provide the heat, which overpowers the other ingredients. Here, it is the pure and simple soup it is supposed to be...not too hot, with just enough sour to complement the pork and mushrooms. Other standout dishes are the Peking-sauced Shrimp or Chicken, the Shanghai Fried Rice and the Ma-Po Tofu (available both with and without meat).
Noble Court is an "old standby" in Bellevue. When I dine in it is for dim sum. A couple of times a month I will get an order to go for dinner, a regular entree of course. The dim sum is very good but honestly I just recently had better at a place in the International District. I do like the location because it is convenient to me. Parking can really suck. Be naughty and park across the street at Safeway.
