“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

The food is delicious and service is very good. The decor is dated but made up for by the other excellent attributes.

“Dim sum with the kids and grandkids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Shangri-la is excellent for Dim Sum. So nice be be able to have it on Sunday mornings without having to travel to Windsor. I am especially fond of their steamed shrimp balls, and lotus leaf wrapped sticky rice.

Highly recommended.

“Good dim sum, friendly attentive staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

I enjoyed a relaxing late dim sum session by myself here a few weeks ago. The staff impressed me. The friendly host greeted me immediately and made a point of leading me to a choice table. The ladies who served the dim sum were friendly, helpful and attentive. They are generous with the pop and refills ! The dim sum I ordered was good but not the best I have tried. I have been spoiled over the years with dim sum over in Windsor, Vancouver, Toronto and Hong Kong. I certainly look forward to returning.

“A Bit of Hong Kong in Michigan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We have found a Hong Kong Dim Sum restaurant in West Bloomfield that is excellent. Living in California we really enjoy S.F. and Sacramento dim sum. Shangri-La is as close to our experience in Hong Kong and S.F. as anything we have tried. The food cards are well stocked with a large variety and freshly prepared items. The service people are outstanding and very friendly (unlike some dim sum places) willing to go to the kitchen for something that is not on one of the carts.

“The best Dim Sum in the Detroit area (makes me sad)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

You would have thought I'd be happy to find the best Dim Sum in the Detroit area. In one respect, yes, I'm glad to have found this place... but yet... I know that Dim Sum can be so much better.

In large cities with REAL Chinatown districts such as Chicago, Toronto, Boston, NY, or San Francisco, I know that Dim Sum can be so much better. The Hong Kong style service on the little carts is fun, but without brisk service, some of the little steampots can cool down and not taste as fresh as they should. My favorite item, the soupy pork dumplings (or xiaolongbao) were small and not as juicy as I've had in another Chinatown restaurant.

I'd definately recommend this place, but only because for in this area, it is the best choice.
