Welcome


To Shangri-La Chinese Restaurant


Authentic Chinese fare draws an international crowd, although those looking for the familiar American-Chinese favorites will find them here, too. It's a shame, however, to settle for boneless almond chicken when there are so many more interesting dishes, including fresh fish and seafood plucked from a huge tank, as well as dishes such as braised duck with Chinese mushrooms, Hong Kong eggplant and minced pork stir-fried with ginger and garlic and beef short ribs with spicy salt. Dim sum is served daily from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. The big dining rooms are decorated with artwork brought from China, including a colorful stained glass ceiling, pieces of which were shipped in dozens of crates and then reassembled here. It would take a diner a couple of years to sample everything on the extensive list of dishes representing many regions of China, from upscale lobster and crab treatments to the down-to-earth breakfast dish and student favorite, congee.
