Shangri-La is our favourite Chinese restaurant in all of Colorado Springs. They do not compromise quality in any way. They use Long Island ducks for their duck preparations ~ the best to be had! We've enjoyed both their Roast Duck as well as their rendition of Peking Duck, which is the best in town! Vegetables are always impecabbly fresh and stir-fried to the perfect crisp-tender stage. We're so glad to have discovered this wonderful restaurant, where the service is always friendly and courteous and the food is exceptional. Keep up the great work!
I have been dining with the owners for years and years. As in when I was a teenager, they knew me by name, at a different restuarant. Absolutely the best I have had, ever. I especially love the sizzling rice soup, and they are very generous with the servings as well.
Awesome, but not for a vegan. Just a wee fyi.
I've been to this restaurant in the past and always enjoyed it but when I had to start changing my diet and eating heart-healthy vegan meals, the owner was not very accommodating.
He ended up charging me extra just so I could have steamed veggies instead of stir-fried in oil. It's not like I was asking for something not on the menu.
I found it frustrating because I also didn't get the soup and egg-roll that came with the lunch meal but had to pay more than my friend who did. And I had a very small amount of food - I was still hungry when I left.
I gave it 3 stars because what I did have tasted good.
If you aren't on a special diet or a vegan this is a good place to eat, otherwise, be aware. They don't seem to accommodate well to vegetarians or vegans, or people who want their veggies steamed.
I really like Shangri La - it has to be the best Chinese place in town. They have Sizzling Rice Soup (my favorite). The owners and staff know me by name along with my young daughter - everyone there is great. If you need something cooked up special just ask they will do whatever they can to please you. If you like duck - you won't be disappointed especially when it is fresh out of the oven.
I have eaten at my share of Chinese restaurants and then some, but have yet to eat anywhere that comes close to the the food here. It is not that they serve anything very different from any other Chinese establishment, but the food tastes SO much better than anywhere else. The wait staff are prompt, polite and knowledgeable of the menu and can help you put together a great dinner from appetizer to dessert. Whenever someone wants to go out for Chinese, we always go here; no exceptions.
I was pleasantly surprised by how great the food at this strip mall restaurant. It's possible that it's the most authentic Chinese food I've had outside of China. Great service, really nice decor... don't let the outside fool you. This is much better than your typical neighborhood Chinese joint.
