Review: Very good food without fuss or pretension. Excellent choice for a Chinese meal. Shang Hai serves delicious Chinese vegetarian/vegan food without any surprises and caters to vegans on their menu. Great selection of different styles of food and meat alternatives on a separate vegetarian menu which tells the diner that dishes can be put together without egg. Really, most of the vegetarian menu is vegan. If you like Chinese food and are in Santa Barbara, Shang Hai is a great place to check out!
