Since the ownership has changed the food quality and service is terrible. Found a bug in my food and they were not the least bit concerned. That was probably our last visit!

I have only eaten here 10-12 times at lunch, but great food at low prices. The lunches come with soup, egg roll, and your entree. Everything on the lunch menu is great, especially the shrimp in oyster sauce (if you like shrimp). Have not eaten dinner here, but would not think the quality of food would go down at dinner.

We happened to be in the Irondale area and remembered a recent Birmingham News article that loved the hot and sour soup here. My wife had the General Tsao's lunch and I chose the Kung Pao Chicken lunch.

After a visit to U of A, we stayed at a local hotel without a shuttle or car. Luckily for dinner we were able to order Chinese food delivery from Shangri-la. We had crispy duck and chicken Lo mien. Both were above average and delivery was timely and friendly. This was certainly better than a pizza delivery.

Have been going to this place for more than 8 years and they don't disappoint! Exceptional service, the nicest servers around and delicious food! Will not disappoint! We love their sesame chicken, Mongolian beef and hot and sour soup! Enjoy!

Best place for reasonably priced Chinese you'll ever eat. Every visit is a delight with a staff that remembers your face and your menu favorites. Have been coming here for years, most recently yesterday and they were packed as usual. Every dish is done to perfection and the Hot-Sour soup is best I've ever had. Every lunch special comes with...

My family and I had a delightful lunch. The staff was very friendly and service was fast. Everyone was very pleased with their lunch. It's nice that your meal comes with egg roll, chicken wing and soup. For the kids who prefer something other than Chinese food they have nugget kids meal which our kids enjoyed.

Not cooking to make home runs, just consistently good Chinese food--a base hit every time. We especially like the hot and sour soup and General Tsao's chicken.
