Fresh & Healthy Homestyle Cooking

seasoningsOpened in 2011, Shanghai Tokyo is the brainchild of Joe Chen, a life-long restaurateur with over 25 years of experience in the Chinese food service industry. The Chinese family-friendly restaurant, originally started in College Park, Maryland, is a choice Joe made because he wants everyone that visits Shanghai Tokyo to feel as comfortable dining with their family, as he does with his.

Every detail in the recipe is well thought out, from every meal’s ingredients, to the Pan Asian atmosphere provided for his patrons. Joe wants Shanghai Tokyo to be your first choice for Chinese Food in Washington, DC, and will always make the effort to gain your trust and satisfaction.

Shanghai Tokyo DC location in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood of Washington, DCToday you can visit a Shanghai Tokyo Cafe location either on Baltimore Avenue in College Park or on Park Road, NW Washington DC. We serve all of your traditional Chinese dishes with flavors made fresh, without sacrificing quality. In fact all of our Chinese food is prepared in a family-style with absolutely no MSG!

Explore our website, visit our store, but whatever you do…be sure to come in and try some of our made-to-order sushi from our dedicated sushi bars at both of our locations.

We hope to see you soon!

Discovered your restaurant by accident while waiting in line for Red Lobster. SO GLAD we switched to you. Have not stopped thinking of you since.


I wanted to thank you for a wonderful dining experience. The food and service was great, not to mention the atmosphere felt like we were at a big family dinner.


Some guests gave up their table for us on Mothers Day - so I know I need to come back. It feels like family here! - Thanks!
