Love this place! - Edit

My husband and I dined Shanghai Mama's while we were visiting Cincinnati, and we absolutely loved it! We ordered the peppered steak, faux ribs, and spring rolls. The faux ribs were soooo good. I thought that the peppered steak was just okay, but overall we had a wonderful experience.

I would definitely go back to sample more of their menu!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Fast service, Friendly wait staff

Obsessed. - Edit

I can't get enough of this place. I have tried several of their vegan options and they're always so good. Their faux ribs are the BOMB. My husband loves the Szechuan Vegetable entree.

Pros: Lots of vegan options!, Non-tofu alternative 'meats' for tofu-weary people

great vegan option for a non veg restaurant - Edit

Orange faux ribs and pepper steak were really good. It was a nice surprise to try something that tasted different from a Chinese restaurant.

I want to love you... - Edit

I really do. Most vegans I know like it, but not me. I keep going and I never like any dish I get. But I will always keep going. It's open late, cheap and near by which gets my vote.

There are a nice variety of dishes to get, too. Alas, I have only kind of liked the green beans.

The atmosphere is nice and it's a city staple for us locals. I think everyone should try for themselves though.

Pros: late night, downtown, cheap, big portions

Cons: not tasty enough

Big bowls of veggies - Edit

Great place to get Asian take-out. Love the gailan and the wild mushroom dish.

Three words: Orange Faux Ribs - Edit

Try the faux ribs!!! So amazing! I like to add tofu too. Shanghai Mamas is also open till 3am on Friday and Saturday too. The interior is very cute and I love the music! Great place.

Pros: yummy, great atmosphere , nice size portions

Cons: parking not the best
