We recently had dinner with a large group at this restaurant which serves a mix of Nepalese and Indian dishes. The appetizers were well spiced although on the mild side. The entrees were very good although none really stood out. The service was friendly and...More

I actually ordered for carry out and then hung out for a few minutes waiting for my order. Staff were very friendly and 100% from Nepal. We ordered Indian food which was outstanding, but now knowing that everyone is from Nepal, I would venture into...More

We visited for dinner at 7pm on a Sunday night and the restaurant was surprisingly all but empty. We received water and menus promptly, but had to wait quite some time for any staff to return to the table. The wait staff was courteous, however,...More

This is my second review of Shangri-la, my previous four star review having been written 2.5 years ago. We have dined several times since, most recently this evening. The quality of the food remains very high. The portions are liberal, the service attentive, and the...More

We had a show at Roundhouse Theatre (about 2 blocks away) and didn't feel like trudging down to Restaurant Row and being deluged with hip, high-end, and designer/celebrity chef choices. So we opted for Shangri-La ... although the outside of the building did give me...More

For my birthday, we went to the Shangri-La Restaurant in Bethesda. They do Indian and Nepali, though I stuck with Nepali. Margaret got her favorite Indian dish, Bhindi Bhaji which is okra. We split a wonderful appetizer, Cho-e-la, chicken sauteed with spices and served with...More

Excellent food. Flavors delicate and delicious. The Buttery Chicken was the best ever. Ambiance -- especially the music -- quite nice. Maybe we're spoiled -- expected a few more choices on the buffet lunch. Nevertheless, we highly recommend it.

It was one of the better restaurants we ate at during vacation. With that being said, I do like our Nepalese restaurants a little bit better in CO. They were nice and fairly quick considering we were the only ones in the restaurant besides one...More

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.
