I can't believe I waited so long to try this place. Must have gone by hundreds of times, but I'm glad I did. Really delicious food, and their family dinners are great because each person gets to pick an entree in addition to soup, eggroll and rice. Beyond that, the menu is huge, with many choices. Service could have been... More

After living in Sarasota for ten years and not finding a Chinese restaurant we really liked we discovered this one. Great find! Excellent food, clean, nice people and a cozy small place not far from our house. Had the sweet and sour chicken, chicken fried rice and egg rolls. All excellent. We'll be back.

Wonton soup that was DELICIOUS! Small intimate sit down Chinese restaurant.tucked into a strip mall. Great lunch menu and early bird specials. All the classics and favorites served plus more. It was nice to enjoy a good meal with table service and not out of a paper bag. Worth a try....plenty of food, reasonable prices and good service.

If you come before 6, you can take advantage of a great early bird, with an egg roll, fried rice and soup included with your entree. I love the shrimp egg foo yung and other entrees.

For being so busy the staff was very efficient and our wait time was very acceptable. My Shanghai noodles were excellent and weveryone else enjoyed their dishes also. It is definintely a do over. Unfortunately... More

First of all, the service is remarkably slow. So we decided to order take-out. They told me 35 minutes. I showed up after 35 minutes, and sat and waited for FORTY MORE MINUTES. I had already paid, or I would have left. The FOOD: "Orange Chicken with white meat only" had unidentifiable chunks of some organic matter but no white... More

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.
