We Detroiters are at somewhat of a disadvantage in terms of Chinese food options, which is why Shangri-La is so prized. Get your pick of Cantonese-style cuisine, dim sum, sushi, and a smattering of fare from other Asian nations at this spot, which includes a second-floor balcony dining area, bar, and TVs. A favorite of ours? The walnut shrimp.
