Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If the restaurant actually existed, it may have been the best ever place we’ve eaten at. As it turns out Shangri La is probably an apt name for a restaurant which is imaginary. Unfortunately we walked for about a mile and half to discover its...been repurposed as a shop.More

Absolutely outstanding service and delicious food, we arrived late on the night of the queen’s funeral and there was no sit down service but take away was available. The lady was so helpful and absolutely amazing in offering to drive our order and us to...our accommodation so it didn’t go cold. Food was lovely; big portions and very tasty. She even threw in a portion of prawn crackers and prawn toast.More

We were staying in Edinburgh for a long weekend and foolishly hadn’t booked anywhere to eat on a Saturday night….after too many drinks on a Friday night we were hankering for Chinese food, and came across Shangri-La….. Incredible….quite possibly some of the best Chinese food...I’ve ever had in the UK. The service was also wonderful and friendly, with regulars constantly coming through the door. Don’t be put off by the decor, the food is simply excellent and the food is brilliant…and great value tooMore

This is without doubt, my favourite restaurant ever! The combination of gorgeous food and a cosy, home-from-home atmosphere are reason enough, but Tina (the proprietor) takes this little place to a whole new level. We have been popping in for dinner regularly for the last...3 months, since we first discovered Shangri-La, and we go as much for her warm and friendly company as we do for the wonderful meals. I couldn't recommend it more highly! : )More

Took 1hr 45min for delivery and forgot the soft drink. Starter was good,but the chicken curry was stodgy and poor. Will not be using again.

Lovely meal , just as nice as I remember. 1st time since lockdown that we have eaten in the restaurant. Fab food, great value for money and Tina welcomes you back like an old friend. My favourites are lemon chicken, whilst hubby loves king prawn...satay. Highly recommend, have never had a bad meal and we have been visiting and having takeaways for the last 7 years.More

Outrageous customer service!!! I phoned up to check that they could accommodate 2 people for a meal that evening. I was told they were opened till 11pm so asked could we book a table for 9pm. We were told we could. We booked and paid...for a taxi and arrived at 8.55pm to be told 'we sorry, we close' there was no-one else in the restaurant and they did indeed look closed. Outrageous service. We had to book another taxi to pick us up and he helped us find another restaurant. Furious!!!!!!!!!!!More

First time having a take away (delivered) from Shangri-La It was super easy to order online The meal came in about 25 minutes which was brilliant. And it was piping hot! We had lemon chicken - this was good Chips egg friend rice and curry...sauce - all superb Also had prawn crackers - these were so good! Nice and light Salt and pepper chips were full of flavour Vegetable spring rolls were great too The price is so reasonable and generous portions Thanks so much! I’ve struggled to find a really good Chinese take away in Edinburgh that delivers - I think this might be my new favouriteMore

Impressed with this little restaurant. Really friendly staff who were really helpful on this first visit. Ribs were first class and the chicken and peppers in black bean some of the best I have had. Lemon chicken nice but not as good as the Loon...Fung just down the road. Rice good and soft noodles excellent. Very competitively priced and portion sizes excellent for the price. Would recommend and will use again.More

We went here on Hogmanay. It wasn't busy and they apologised for closing early but many other places nearby weren't open at all. Lovely food and service. Don't be put off by the look of the place.
