Chinese at its best

The food is authentic Chinese which is so hard to find these days. Lunch specials are amazing for the price - dinner is great too.

Great, authentic Asian restaurant. What makes it really great are the people; friendly, courteous, they remember who you are. Terrific!!

I normally love sweet and sour shrimp, but that was not a good choice tonight. The sauce actually was sweet and sour, but it did not enhance the dish. The pineapple chunks were cold on the inside. The lo-mein noodles served with the dish were just spaghetti noodles mixed with LOTS of garlic and soy sauce. Very salty. My husband's... More

I am not sure we actually got what we ordered. My braised chicken was tempura breaded and fried IMO and my husband ordered noodles and received rice instead. However it is a pleasant restaurant and the food was decent and fairly priced.

My wife eats here more frequently than I do since she works in the community, though I have dined here with her several times and have always enjoyed it! Their food is good, and you can customize your own dish if you would like, or just order off the menu. Try their sodas, they are unique flavors, and made in... More

I visited for lunch with a business partner, this was my first experience here. The lunch menu is expansive and very affordable! Service was very quick... great for workday lunch. I ordered the cashew chicken and was very pleased with my meal. Every lunch entre comes with soup, an appetizer, and choice of rice for less than $10 per person.... More

My husband brought this home one evening so I didnt have to cook. We have had many negative experiences with Chinese food here in Illinois so I have to admit I was skeptical at first. Everything was fresh, and well seasoned. Each entree was properly balanced with ingredients and delicious. We will definitely put this on our restaurant rotation in... More

Interior attractive and comfortable. Food ok but not great (my dish was inundated with sauce). Waiter rushed around unnecessarily considering there were only 4 tables occupied--I would have liked calmer service --but staff was friendly and personable. Wifi worked well.

I highly recommend Shangri-La unless you have unruly kids or friends with you. It's a quiet place with excellent food and service. It seems to be more popular with adults 30 and up and somewhat less popular with college students. Wang Gang is excellent too, but Wang Gang puts more emphasis on fun and creativity. Shangri-La is best when you're... More

What a menu! There are items on the menu that you see in St. Louis restaurants but not in our community restaurants. Have tried several dishes and haven't had a bad one yet. Service is excellent and quick. If you have questions or want a recommendation, they are quick to help. It seems quiet in the restaurant so a nice... More
