This used to be our regular Chinese restaurant in Charlotte but the quality and take out service is no longer any good. For example, before the lockdown we went there for dinner. I ordered egg drop soup and it was like drinking dish water. I...almost sent it back but let it go this time. We tried to support the restaurant and did take out a few times recently. Once again, we ordered soup (Won Ton) and it had no flavor. In addition, most times we have picked up food the order is either missing an item or they gave us something we did not order. The final straw for us when we called them when we did not get dinner item we ordered and they would not give us a refund even after we told them we did not want to drive 45 minutes round trip to pick up the correct food order. What is truly scary is they requested that we bring the food back that we did not order !! My goodness, what were they going to do with food that had already been opened !! Sad to say, time to find another place for Chines food.More

Shun Lee is a Charlotte staple and you kind of know exactly what to expect. They are friendly, it is basic Chinese. It is our favorite DoorDash option for Chinese!

With a friend we had the daily luncheon special and an order off the regular menu.. Both plates were served promptly and with a moderate amount of food. We had refills quite often and were not neglected or overly bothered.The fried rice there has vegetables...in it which made it more flavorful. The handicap ramp seems a little far from the entrance, but one is available at the handicap parking spots. Good spot for a lunch special or dinner meal.More

Went here tonight with my father and a friend who had a coupon for $30 which was about to expire. To get to the point, we each ordered something different and only one of our meals turned out to be ok. My friend got the...Hibachi shrimp which looked good and she liked it. My father ordered sweet and sour pork. It wasn't what he was expecting but he doesn't go to Chinese restaurants often, so the expectations weren't met but that really wasn't the fault of the restaurant.However, every piece of pork he tried was fatty and not trimmed making it hard for him to eat. I tried a couple of pieces and had to agree with him. It was very underwhelming. My meal was just plain old terrible. I ordered the lemon chicken which I have ordered there previously and liked. It's hard to find restaurants here in Charlotte that offer it, so I have always looked forward to it there. The lemon chicken which I've previously had there is a nice piece (or two) of thinly sliced chicken breast, breaded lightly and served on a bed of lettuce with the lemon sauce on the side. What I got tonite was lemon sauce on the side and a plate of chicken pieces (I think it was chicken) that looked more like a plate of fried clams or calamari. It was just small pieces of breaded chicken tossed on the plate with no garnish. It tasted as bad as it looked. I only wish I had thought to take a picture of it but I was too pissed off to think of doing so. It was honestly the worst meal I've had at a restaurant in a very long time and I go out often. My friend took a bite and also said it was terrible. Oh yea, it was luke-warm too. It was just terrible. It took a while for our food to arrive as well even though there were hardly any other customers there. They were probably searching for little pieces of chicken. The server couldn't really give me credit for the meal because of the coupon but they did offer me another meal. So I ordered some sweet and sour chicken. Not sure when I'll eat that but I certainly don't have high expectations. All in all, the wait staff is nice and friendly and they tried to make up for our meals but the poor food overshadowed their service. This restaurant is fairly close to my house and I have been there for both lunch and dinner before but I have no intentions of going back based on tonight's experience.More

Food is always great ! Staff was nice but not informative. Took 1 hr to get take out. Usually takes 15-20 minutes. Staff didn’t warn us at all. Super late to our show. Just wish they would have communicated better. Food was a 5...people were...nice...just not informative. Bathroom 😬 dark and dingy needs upgrade.More

Tried this place near the house since we had a coupon. Even with that it was not worth it. I had the shrimp pad Thai and it should not have been called pad Thai. As you can see it's angel hair pasta and super thin...sauce without flavor along with a few green beans and bean sprouts. The shrimp were good when dipped in the hot mustard and other dipping sauce. My partner got the shrimp and steak hibachi which was good except steak came well done instead of mid-rare. Our waitress never returned until we got the bill so we never got a chance to tell them about the food. Won't be going back.More

We were super hungry and close by so decided to try it out. Ordered Pineapple Fried Rice with chicken and Shrimp Egg Foo Young. The chunks of pineapple in the fried rice were too big but the dish was tasty , just not great. The...egg foo young was good but the gravy tasted like curry and was yellow, I’m more accustomed to seeing a rich brown gravy for this dish. It was not expensive and portions were large. It just wasn’t a dinner that I would go back for. Still searching for GREAT Chinese food in Charlotte.More

I have been getting takeout from this restaurant for several months but when I called recently three different times in a row because I thought I had called the wrong number I was told that they no longer deliver. I asked if I was calling...Shun Lee palace even though it showed up on my phone as such I was told no. Not sure why but I will not order from them again. I have been a good customer never rude with them so I can only assume that they are under different ownership.More

My wife and I tried Shun Lee twice, but unfortunately won't be back again. The first time we went, we enjoyed the shrimp lettuce wraps as an appetizer and they were delicious. My wife ordered scallops and vegetables, and ordered the shrimp Pad Thai. Both...tasted fine but both of us had some intestinal issues that evening and the next day. We always like to give a reastaurant a second try, so about two weeks later we went back and ordered several appetizers including the shrimp lettuce wraps, egg rolls , spring rolls, and calamari. We could not finish the calamari - the rings were about 2 to 3 inches in diameter and had a weird seasoning in the batter that left a strange taste in our mouths. Each of the calamari rings also had an inedible band of material surrounding it that was very string like. I also ordered the general chicken, which I had a very difficult time digesting. Two visits and two bad experiences. We won't be back.More

Shun Lee Palace is consistently good. We have never had a substandard meal there. Prices are slightly higher than other Charlotte Chinese restaurants but worth the difference. The speed and quality of service is excellent. The decor seems somewhat dated but pleasant nevertheless. Last night,...my wife had the General's Chicken and I had the Mongolian Beef. Both had the right amount of spiciness and cooked to perfection.More

We love the sesame chicken and Moshi pork. We've had dumplings and ragoon - enjoyed them as well. We rarely eat there but when we do - service has been very nice. Food is ready quickly and tasty.

We decided to have lunch at Shun Lee Palace today on our way to SouthPark since it’s been a couple of months, if not more, since we’d eaten here. I ordered my favorite -- steak with black pepper sauce. It comes with fried rice and...an egg roll. My husband ordered the garlic chicken which also comes with fried rice and an egg roll. Of course you get the little fried egg roll-like "chips" (I don’t know what they’re really called) that come with sweet and sour sauce, and the hot mustard while you wait for your entrée. My steak with black pepper sauce is so good. It has the steak of course, mushrooms and onions, and this delicious black pepper sauce. The sauce is almost like a gravy, it’s smooth, and spicy! The mushrooms are large and have a mouth watering sweetness about them that keeps you wanting more of them. The fried rice is also very good and I only found one small piece of egg in mine, which suited me just fine! The garlic chicken has a garlic sauce with the chicken, broccoli, and carrots. My husband said it was good and also spicy. It’s his favorite from there. The lunch portion is just the right amount for lunch, and actually it was more than I could eat. I left half of my rice and half of my egg roll. I didn’t want to leave any of the steak with pepper sauce, so I concentrated on that! The flavors are so wonderful, you don’t want to stop eating it! Shun Lee wasn’t very busy at lunch time, I think we were there around 11:45, and they had a few more people come in after us, but still wasn’t packed. If you like Chinese food, you will like Shun Lee.More
