Shangri-La is small and crowded, but worth waiting for a table. The menu is extensive, offering both standard choices and many varieties and selections from many provinces. Our two favorite choices were the pan-fried ravioli and the eggplant in spicy sauce.

This is a small'ish restaurant with excellent Chinese food and great dim sum (there's often a line out the door on Sunday mornings!). It's all good, but I especially love the green beans, which are incredibly tasty!

I have been going to Shangri-la for over 4 years and never been disappointed with the quality of the food. Most of the times the place is frequented by mostly other Asians, so they definitely know where excellent Chinese food can be had. There are...More
