We happened to be in the Irondale area and remembered a recent Birmingham News article that loved the hot and sour soup here. My wife had the General Tsao's lunch and I chose the Kung Pao Chicken lunch. Lunches come with egg roll, chicken wing and choice of soup (we, of course, tried the hot and sour), plus fortune cookie... More

After a visit to U of A, we stayed at a local hotel without a shuttle or car. Luckily for dinner we were able to order Chinese food delivery from Shangri-la. We had crispy duck and chicken Lo mien. Both were above average and delivery was timely and friendly. This was certainly better than a pizza delivery.

Best place for reasonably priced Chinese you'll ever eat. Every visit is a delight with a staff that remembers your face and your menu favorites. Have been coming here for years, most recently yesterday and they were packed as usual. Every dish is done to perfection and the Hot-Sour soup is best I've ever had. Every lunch special comes with...

My family and I had a delightful lunch. The staff was very friendly and service was fast. Everyone was very pleased with their lunch. It's nice that your meal comes with egg roll, chicken wing and soup. For the kids who prefer something other than Chinese food they have nugget kids meal which our kids enjoyed.

Not cooking to make home runs, just consistently good Chinese food--a base hit every time. We especially like the hot and sour soup and General Tsao's chicken.

I have been going to this restaurant off and on for 25 years. The food is always good and the service is always friendly. In the evenings they put shrimp in the hot and sour soup and it is amazing. I have moved away from Birmingham, but when I am in town I have to come here.

Enjoy the lunch here. The atmosphere is quite and muted. I am able to relax a few minutes and enjoy my lunch. I am really picky about my Chinese food and I love the food here. I often take out of town business guest here and everyone I have taken here has enjoyed it also.
