My husband and Inage there for the first time last night and it was terrible. We ordered boneless spareribs which didn't have any flavor. The duck sauce wasn't even good. We both requested that our meals be totally garlic free. But our Gemeral Gao's chicken...More

This is a small'ish restaurant with excellent Chinese food and great dim sum (there's often a line out the door on Sunday mornings!). It's all good, but I especially love the green beans, which are incredibly tasty!

You do not need to go to Chinatown for great Chinese food! Shangri-La was recommended to me years ago by a Chinese friend living in Boston. Delicious food - particularly love the Taiwanese spicy diced chicken with peanuts. Also the spicy green beans and all...More

I've eaten here 10 times and it's always superb! The lunch during the week is the best value in Boston – – eight dollars for a three course lunch! The dim sum people stand in line for on the weekends!

The food is good and excellent. I have passed this restaurant many times and peeked through the windows to find that it was filled with Asians. Always a good indication so I decided to try it with some friends. I was not disappointed. The decor...More
