    I received a menu on my door from Shangrila and based on the menu items offered my husband and I decided to give it a try. We went to the restaurant to dine-in but we were initially turned off by the outside appearance but decided to go ahead and give it a try. For the sake of getting straight to the point. The restaurant was filthy, I was so shocked at the dirty booths, carpet, ledges, ceilings and silverware. I over heard a waitress tell another patron "sorry for the styrofoam bowl but the dishwasher just got here". It was 5 pm. I might have been able to over look the filthy establishment (that's a joke) if the food had been worth it. It wasn't. We ordered spring rolls and the filling tasted like it had already gone bad and they fried them any way. The waiter accidently brought us someone elses rangoons but let us keep them since it was his mistake, terrible, they were rubbery. I ordered curry delight and my husband ordered fried duck. Everything was terrible including the steamed rice which had clearly been sitting for hours. To add insult to injury this terrible meal cost us $42.00. I would have had a more enjoyable meal at Bejiing Express for much less. I'm not sure how the health department hasn't closed this place down. We weren't even able to order any beer since the waiter was kind enough to tell us the owner lost his license to sell alcohol. I'm not sure how the owner was able to look me in the eye and ask if everything was okay. They boast that they are "blue plate" award winners. Yea back in 2005 and I'm not sure I really believe that.
