Ashfield's Chinese cuisine and dumpling specialist.
August 13, 2021
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).
