Shangrila Chinese Food to Love - Restaurant Review

By Kelsey R.


I often hear people chatting about finding a good Chinese restaurant. I learned that many people are very particular about their Chinese food. Not only is a delicious menu a main requirement but also the atmosphere and customer service. Chinese food seems to be a go-to when enjoying a cozy night in and watching movies. I am happy to report that Shangrila located on White Street in York is one of those fabulous finds.

Appetizers and Soups

Shangrila Chinese Restaurant has a menu that could feed any appetite or any taste bud imaginable. For starters, the appetizers offered have a great variety. Spring Rolls, Barbeque Spare Ribs, Scallion Pancakes, Fried Shrimp Balls, and Steamed Vegetarian Dumplings are a few menu items. During my visit I was given warm Wonton Soup, which was perfect.

Other great choices are the Egg Drop, Bean Curd with Vegetables, and the Cream of Chicken Soup. I was given a piping hot Spring Roll as well which was fabulous. I was sitting in a booth thinking how comfortable I felt slurping on my hot soup, crunching down on my Spring Roll, and enjoying the wonton strips and duck sauce. The atmosphere was comforting.


Chef’s Specials and Roasted Duck

Whenever I see duck on the menu, I typically order it. I like duck in tacos the best. At Shangrila I was given a beautiful Roasted Duck. The entrée was enormous and could easily be shared with others. The meat was perfectly crispy and extremely tasty! When you look over the menu you may see a green chili pepper next to an item which indicated the spice. Some other Specials to try are the Lung Fong Gai Kew, Dragon and Phoenix, and the Harvest Beef. Beef dinners are another favorite of mine. You will see that you can substitute many of the items for beef if you desire.


Crystal Shrimp and Combination Platters

The waitress brought out a plate of Crystal Shrimp. I have never experienced the dish before, and I love shrimp! The texture is the best part, with a little crunch and a little duck sauce, the dish will have you wanting more. The Crystal Shrimp almost looks like popcorn. This dish was a new favorite for me. You may want to order an additional meal if you are craving shrimp. There is Roast Pork Egg Foo Young, Pepper Steak, and Sweet and Sour Chicken. I think the Crystal Shrimp and Sweet and Sour Chicken would be excellent choices to pair together!


Diet Menu

I have been hearing more and more conversations about weight loss and fitness. Dining out can be a challenge if you are looking to maintain a strict diet. But it is hard to pass up a social outing. Shangrila offers a Diet Menu. You can order items with mixed vegetables to help add substance to your meal. There is Shrimp with Mixed Vegetables, and Chicken with Mixed Vegetables.

You can also pick white or brown sauce. There is no excuse to miss out on a great dinner just because you think your diet says so! Next time you want to spend an evening in and watch movies, pull up Shangrila's menu on your phone and order some delicious dishes. The fresh and favorable menu choices are a perfect to share with friends and family!
