We visited for dinner at 7pm on a Sunday night and the restaurant was surprisingly all but empty. We received water and menus promptly, but had to wait quite some time for any staff to return to the table. The wait staff was courteous, however,...More

We had a show at Roundhouse Theatre (about 2 blocks away) and didn't feel like trudging down to Restaurant Row and being deluged with hip, high-end, and designer/celebrity chef choices. So we opted for Shangri-La ... although the outside of the building did give me...More

Excellent food. Flavors delicate and delicious. The Buttery Chicken was the best ever. Ambiance -- especially the music -- quite nice. Maybe we're spoiled -- expected a few more choices on the buffet lunch. Nevertheless, we highly recommend it.

It was one of the better restaurants we ate at during vacation. With that being said, I do like our Nepalese restaurants a little bit better in CO. They were nice and fairly quick considering we were the only ones in the restaurant besides one...More

This restaurant is amazing. The food was incredible, the service awesome. Since we were travelling we couldn't take our left-overs with us. We just about cried to leave them behind.

While this restaurant brought back childhood memories of visiting my aunts restaurant in Delhi, it didn't do justice to the flavors or the helpings of chilli chicken. There are days when you yearn for a home meal, and today was one of those. I am...More

Description
In our ideal restaurant classic vegetarian dishes would be made from locally grown organic produce effused with Indian and Nepalese spices. Meats would be cooked high over hot charcoal in a tandoor (a traditional clay oven) allowing fats to drain, thereby lowering their cholesterol content. He would cook with olive oil, make his own yogurt and bake bread as ordered. Shangrila restaurant would serve the simple fresh, organic, flavorfully spiced foods that a mother would cook if she came from New Delhi or Katmandu.
