JoeMy family visit to LJ Shanghai was amazing! This restaurant is not your typical Chinese restaurant. LJ Shanghai is located in Cleveland's Asiatown neighborhood about 12 minutes east from Downtown Cleveland. Their menu offers a different style of Chinese food that is interesting. My family and I ordered the Shanghai fried noodle dish and the Chongqing spicy noodle soup and they were delicious! The soup dumplings are a must order for any occasion! We had to order the soup dumplings 2x because they were so good! Our dine in experience was very welcoming and relaxing. The service was great as well.
- Nick PMost unique Chinese food experience I’ve ever had. The spicy pig ears were a spicy crunchy and numbing appetizer. The udon noodles were sweet and salty with a great smokey wok flavor. The spicy pig intestine soup is a rare treat! Looking forward to trying some other menu items when I return.
- Kara SAbsolutely wonderful, authentic food. We had never had a truly authentic Chinese food experience like this and it was something we talk about to all of our friends. The restaurant is not very large, but it is ample enough space. We were helped with understanding the menu and were provided recommendations and were not steered incorrectly! The soup dumplings were something out of this world. When you pop them in your mouth, they melted with a surprise burst of soup. Simply delightful. I was sad when they were gone. The sweet and sour ribs were tasty. Fell off the bones and were so tender and flavorful. We also had the edamame and they were crispy. The pan fried noodles were delicious. The wonton soup was amazing and flavorful too! I am not good at using chopsticks, but it was fun to try and felt more authentic. Our service was great. Everyone was very nice and our glasses were never empty. Can’t wait to return!
