We bought a Groupon for a family of 4 to have dinner here. We usually go to Indian buffets and enjoy most things but never remember the names of the dishes. The interior was kind of dull but there were several tables occupied. We took our 4,6,10 yr old boys to eat here. They were complaining that there was no... More

Our hotel is around the corner so when we walked by looking for something to eat, this place looked perfect as it wasn't too expensive. Greeted & shown to our table. LOVED the garlic naan, seekh kabab & saag paneer. We spent $33 for 2 but well worth it. They also bring out extras to eat on too. They deliver... More

Shangri-La is a modest, almost drab looking place. However, it has a comprehensive menu that is reasonably priced for the expensive downtown Bethesda area. The service was friendly and attentive throughout the meal. I thought the food came out of the kitchen a bit slowly but I suspect it had been prepared to order. All told, a bit of patience... More

We went to this restaurant and tried the butter chicken and chicken curry both were excellent. The owners were very friendly and took time to make sure we were enjoying our meal and for some nice conversation. The prices were reasonable.

My husband and I love this place because the food is good and the portion sizes are not ridiculously huge. The atmosphere is quiet and the service is attentive and professional. It is a good place to enjoy food and conversation with a group of friends or with a partner. I loved the veggie korma. I've also had the tandoori... More

All four of our entrees (chicken tikka, chicken tikka masala, chickpeas masala, vegetable biryani) were good to very good. Would eat here again - tough to find good Indian food in Bethesda and Potomac.

Visited last night with two friends. Ordered the salmon curry. It was quite good, adequately spiced, not overpowering. Salmon itself was tender and juicy. Naan (plain) was done well, not greasy, but crispy and chewy. Overall, not a bad place. Well-attended on Monday evening after 8pm.

My husband and I decided to have dinner after spending the day roaming around the city. To my surprise, even at 7-8 pm, on a Sunday evening, it was very quiet with just two other tables occupied. The service was alright- waiter didn't seem really interested, the manager did, however, engage us in a friendly chit chat after our meal.... More

A good choice of Indian and less familiar Nepalese food nicely prepared and presented. A rich choice of vegetarian selections. The drinks are nonalcoholic. The setting is simple, but the service is helpful and friendly. Located near the Bethesda Metro Center.

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.
