My friend and I decided to try lunch at Shangri-La Restaurant, which was highlighted on ABC 7's Judy Gallagher in Feb. Anna greeted us warmly as we entered her home away from home and explained what Bok Choy is to my friend. My Friend enjoyed her Shitake Mushrooms with Bok Choy sauteed with chicken and had delicious Won Ton soup.... More

Very good breadth of choices for lunch but the Szechuan, spicy dishes just aren't spicy...in fact my wife's "medium spice" dish was spicier than mine which I ordered "hot, spicy". The hot and sour soup was tasty but also not spicy and IMHO not worth the $1.50 up charge on the lunch for the small bowl. My chicken dish was... More

We moved here from up north and have had a very hard time finding good tasting Chinese food. Well we have found our new place. The food was very fresh and full of flavor. The atmosphere was very nice. A bit small inside but that kept it quite. We will be back again and again. The prices were very good... More

I thought I was bank in New York City!! A great little restaurant for Chinese food as good as you can find in Chinatown NYC. We have been dining here for 16 years and have always had a terrific meal. Family owned and operated, not some fast food pretender. It is our first stop when we return to Sarasota and... More

We have eaten here many times. Wonderful food. Not your fast food Chinese. We found this restaurant when my husband was I hospital. He wanted wonton soup. I found this place. The soup is like Chinese medicine! So good, not salty. Now we come from Venice to get our Chinese food fix!

I ate here once ~ two months ago, and my dinner (orange flavored beef) was wonderful, so I was happy to go back again to try my OTHER favorite, Pork Egg Foo Yung. My husband ordered his fave Teriyaki Beef. We were so disappointed. The Teriyaki beef was lean, very tender and perfectly cooked, but had no flavor. None. My... More
