Best Shanghai restaurant for catering or large take-out order in San Gabriel and Arcadia?

We're having a large party (approx 65 people) @ our house this Sunday afternoon. Weather forecast says cold and rain, and now I will have to change the menu to warm, stick-to-your-ribs Shanghai food rather than cold or room temp dishes. Can anyone recommend a Shanghai restaurant which can handle a large catering order? Has anyone had much experience with Jin Jian (J&J), Mei-long Village, or Chang's Garden, or any other Shanghai restaurant in the SGV doing a large catering or take-out order?

  1. If you call ahead (like today), any of the three places you mentioned would be able to provide you want you need in terms of food. But you have to call far ahead enough to give the place time to prepare the dishes you want.

      Great answer. This is especially true if you want something that takes a lot of labor and time to produce, such as dumplings.
