Little Shanghai - Closed

456 S. Broadway Denver, CO 80209 | South Denver | 303-777-9838

Location Description:

The Rolling Stones ate at this Denver institution decades ago, and faithful fans continue to find satisfaction at Little Shanghai. From classics such as lo mein and sesame chicken to more exotic fare like the Rich Man Fried Rice and Szechuan green beans with pork, everything coming out of this kitchen features fresh, well-handled ingredients. And the family that runs the place is so friendly you might find yourself staying for course after course, starting with the pu-pu platter and ending with candied bananas.
