We were staying in Edinburgh for a long weekend and foolishly hadn’t booked anywhere to eat on a Saturday night….after too many drinks on a Friday night we were hankering for Chinese food, and came across Shangri-La….. Incredible….quite possibly some of the best Chinese food...I’ve ever had in the UK. The service was also wonderful and friendly, with regulars constantly coming through the door. Don’t be put off by the decor, the food is simply excellent and the food is brilliant…and great value tooMore

This is without doubt, my favourite restaurant ever! The combination of gorgeous food and a cosy, home-from-home atmosphere are reason enough, but Tina (the proprietor) takes this little place to a whole new level. We have been popping in for dinner regularly for the last...3 months, since we first discovered Shangri-La, and we go as much for her warm and friendly company as we do for the wonderful meals. I couldn't recommend it more highly! : )More

Took 1hr 45min for delivery and forgot the soft drink. Starter was good,but the chicken curry was stodgy and poor. Will not be using again.

Lovely meal , just as nice as I remember. 1st time since lockdown that we have eaten in the restaurant. Fab food, great value for money and Tina welcomes you back like an old friend. My favourites are lemon chicken, whilst hubby loves king prawn...satay. Highly recommend, have never had a bad meal and we have been visiting and having takeaways for the last 7 years.More

Outrageous customer service!!! I phoned up to check that they could accommodate 2 people for a meal that evening. I was told they were opened till 11pm so asked could we book a table for 9pm. We were told we could. We booked and paid...for a taxi and arrived at 8.55pm to be told 'we sorry, we close' there was no-one else in the restaurant and they did indeed look closed. Outrageous service. We had to book another taxi to pick us up and he helped us find another restaurant. Furious!!!!!!!!!!!More

First time having a take away (delivered) from Shangri-La It was super easy to order online The meal came in about 25 minutes which was brilliant. And it was piping hot! We had lemon chicken - this was good Chips egg friend rice and curry...sauce - all superb Also had prawn crackers - these were so good! Nice and light Salt and pepper chips were full of flavour Vegetable spring rolls were great too The price is so reasonable and generous portions Thanks so much! I’ve struggled to find a really good Chinese take away in Edinburgh that delivers - I think this might be my new favouriteMore

Very good service and people. There was a miscommunication with the order and they were extremely helpful to sort it out. Special thanks to Tina!
