Shangri-La is a cozy Chinese Buddhist restaurant on Irving Street that serves consistently good veg food at good prices.

This small, informal restaurant has excellent hot-and-sour soup as well as delicious dumplings and tasty twice-fried tofu. The cold noodles are also really good. Not everything here is great, but enough of it is good.

Also, for those who may be interested, the restaurant is certified kosher.

We keep kosher at home but eat vegetarian on the road. However, a trip to San Fran isn't complete without a meal at Shangri-La. Seriously. Love this place.

The food is tasty and not too salty. Portions are generous. The meal always comes with an appetizer of some lightly pickled veggies. The staff is really nice and helpful (they gave us change for the meter multiple times!!) They know the menu well and what is popular. The average dish is just $8.

You don't have to be vegetarian or kosher to eat here. But if you are either, don't miss it.

Best kosher Chinese I've eaten-- and yes, I have eaten other kosher Chinese!!

My husband, teenage kids and I went to this restaurant on our visit to San Francisco. We loved it!! We ordered the family meal which started out with delicious soup and then an appetizer. Then came a main dish for each person served family style on a lazy susan in the middle of the table. This was topped off by a delicious dessert of fried bananas. We all shared and tasted everything. All the food was very tasty and amazingly all vegan. Some of it tasted like chicken or meat or pork. The prices were very reasonable and the waitress was very helpful in our ordering. Everything felt very authentic and family oriented. We all highly recommend this restaurant to everyone who doesn't believe that vegan food can be really delicious and diverse.

My son is a vegetarian, and we love Chinese food, so on recent trip to San Francisco we visited all three vegetarian-Chinese restaurants in town (there may be more - we found only three). This was definitely the best - good food and very reasonable prices. I did not care for the "simulated beef", but the rest of the "meats" and "fish" were very good, as were the vegetable dishes (real, not simulated). Being a Kosher restaurant, they carry Manischewitz wine, which we thought was very amusing.
