Shanghai River Restaurant

Chinese in Richmond & Steveston

Grab a seat overlooking the kitchen window at this cavernous northern Chinese eatery and you'll be mesmerized by the handiwork that goes into folding some of the area's best dim-sum dumplings. Order plates to share – one dish per person is the usual ratio – and be careful not to squirt everyone with the juicy pork or shrimp dumplings.

The servers are often not fluent in English, so keep your orders simple.
