Hands Down The Best Chinese in Santa Cruz!.
If you want seriously good Chinese food in this part of the state, you need to go to Little Shanghai in Santa Cruz. There is nothing that even comes close. Little Shanghai is 4-star all the way.
The Absolute Best!.
Little Shanghai is not only the best Chinese restaurant in Santa Cruz, I believe it is the best restaurant of any kind in the area. I have the pleasure of eating lunch at Little Shanghai's nearly every Friday --- a personal treat for myself. No matter the size of the group, the service is always fabulous and the food is incredible. My nicest experience was a dinner that I gave for my mother and about 9 guests. Jack and his staff treated my mother like a queen. The service was perfect. The food was a culinary delight. One last thing. I highly recommend the KUNG-PAO CHICKEN. One bite and you're in heaven!
