I take my family to this nice place often! This is my favorite spot to have a bite. I go to this spot frequently. The meals are great, the team is courteous and the payment is affordable. I like eating in this place to have a rich supper.

Consistently great! Family run business. They know what they’re doing. Lunch, dinner, Sunday brunch. It’s all good.

I have been waiting years to visit this Dim-Sum restaurant that has had rave reviews. We were very disappointed going there for a Saturday lunch. For me, the key dish to taste is a Chinese dumpling also known as Peking Ravioli, and several other names. I remember making this dish with my Mother when I was seven, over 60 years ago. Shangri-La's version was an overstuffed, somewhat fatty portion of a flavorless pork meat. This pan-fried dumpling had burnt edges and bottom facing up. Not heavily browned....but burnt.

The cold noodles with vegetables was the only good dish we were served. The noodles were excellent and the vegetables crisp and refreshing.

The last dish served was small steamed pork buns. They were generous in serving us seven rather than six buns, but both of us could only struggle part-way through one. There was some odd taste to them, although they were obviously cooked thoroughly. At first I thought it was a chemical back taste, but it was simply old, tired oil that had had a long day.

The restaurant was packed, the majority being Chinese, which I take as a serious endorsement. Perhaps it was an "off" day or the oil hadn't been changed. Last but not least at all was the bad tea we were served. The water was not very hot, and the tea was dark brown with a very bitter taste. With all respect, serving old, over-steeped tea is breaking an absolute given of fresh tea.

Good tiwanese style Chinese food. The homestyle egg drop soup and tea smoked duck are personal favorites
