Shanghai Night on Liverpool Road is one of Sydney's oldest Shanghainese restaurants. The brightly lit, loud eatery remains one of the best spots to eat in Ashfield — a suburb known for its top-notch Chinese cuisine. So, that's saying something. Just don't confuse it for New Shanghai Nights, located a mere two doors down.
Settle in for piled-high plates of pan-fried pork dumplings ($8.80), steamed chicken and shiitake mushroom dumplings (from $9.80), and Shanghai-style mini pork and crab buns ($10.80). If you're in need of a heartwarming bowl of wonton soups, it's got plenty of those, too, plus a heap of mains, including king prawns with eggplant ($29.80), shredded pork in Sichuan sauce ($18.80), and crispy skin duck ($18.80).
