If you come before 6, you can take advantage of a great early bird, with an egg roll, fried rice and soup included with your entree. I love the shrimp egg foo yung and other entrees.

For being so busy the staff was very efficient and our wait time was very acceptable. My Shanghai noodles were excellent and weveryone else enjoyed their dishes also. It is definintely a do over.

First of all, the service is remarkably slow. So we decided to order take-out. They told me 35 minutes. I showed up after 35 minutes, and sat and waited for FORTY MORE MINUTES. I had already paid, or I would have left. The FOOD: "Orange Chicken with white meat only" had unidentifiable chunks of some organic matter but no white... More

My friend and I decided to try lunch at Shangri-La Restaurant, which was highlighted on ABC 7's Judy Gallagher in Feb. Anna greeted us warmly as we entered her home away from home and explained what Bok Choy is to my friend. My Friend enjoyed her Shitake Mushrooms with Bok Choy sauteed with chicken and had delicious Won Ton soup.... More

Very good breadth of choices for lunch but the Szechuan, spicy dishes just aren't spicy...in fact my wife's "medium spice" dish was spicier than mine which I ordered "hot, spicy". The hot and sour soup was tasty but also not spicy and IMHO not worth the $1.50 up charge on the lunch for the small bowl. My chicken dish was... More

We moved here from up north and have had a very hard time finding good tasting Chinese food. Well we have found our new place. The food was very fresh and full of flavor. The atmosphere was very nice. A bit small inside but that kept it quite. We will be back again and again. The prices were very good... More
