We had a show at Roundhouse Theatre (about 2 blocks away) and didn't feel like trudging down to Restaurant Row and being deluged with hip, high-end, and designer/celebrity chef choices. So we opted for Shangri-La ... although the outside of the building did give me...More

Excellent food. Flavors delicate and delicious. The Buttery Chicken was the best ever. Ambiance -- especially the music -- quite nice. Maybe we're spoiled -- expected a few more choices on the buffet lunch. Nevertheless, we highly recommend it.

This restaurant is amazing. The food was incredible, the service awesome. Since we were travelling we couldn't take our left-overs with us. We just about cried to leave them behind.

In our ideal restaurant classic vegetarian dishes would be made from locally grown organic produce effused with Indian and Nepalese spices. Meats would be cooked high over hot charcoal in a tandoor (a traditional clay oven) allowing fats to drain, thereby lowering their cholesterol content. He would cook with olive oil, make his own yogurt and bake bread as ordered. Shangrila restaurant would serve the simple fresh, organic, flavorfully spiced foods that a mother would cook if she came from New Delhi or Katmandu.
