Delightful. Family owned business. Outside dining available. The technician at Mac Repair Santa Rosa recomended Shangrila while I was waiting for a quick repair. The tandoori salmon was very moist inside - nice charbroiled flavor out - and served on a bed of greens, onions and peppers. Brown rice or white is available. The daal was nice too. Mango Lassi was delicious. Nepalese family donates a portion of proceeds to a home for elderly women in Nepal.

Almost every Indian restaurant I have been... are always heavy on spices. After one meal feels like don't need to go for few months. I have found Shangri-La the opposite case. I was attracted with the sign of $7.99 Lunch plate then walked in. Had my lunch with glass of Mango Lassi. Could not help to go back for dinner to order Lamb Biryani. They use very little spices... you can ask for very spicy if you dare... They will be happy to make.... Be sure to ask for plenty of lemon sqeezed - carbon filtered tap water ( it's free).

It's a very simple casual eating place. Owner seems to know most of the customer. That tells about the place. Should give a try. Now I'm one of their regulars... Chicken Chili, Palak Paneer with Naan bread.. any thing you order.. can't go wrong.. Oh yes! Samosa Chaat is gret appetizer to start with,. For now.. I give them five star. I may change it if I find them otherwise in the future.

Pros: Plenty of parking, Good food, Friendly service

Cons: Service could be little slow during rush hours

My favorites reflect those of previous reviewers - the Tikka Masala is exceptional. Being vegetarian, I order the veggie version, but I understand from co-diners the chicken version is quite different and complements the veggie tikka when ordered together. The veggie momos (stuffed vegetable pasta) with that heavenly sauce are another favorite. One of the owners of this family owned business fasts every Tuesday - the day of the week she was born on - and donates a portion of profits to a place in Nepal that cares for aging women. Apparently there is little support for that demographic group worldwide - aging/widowed women. Since women outlive men, earn less money for identical work, it has become a worldwide problem - in the US too. The friendly folks at Mac Advantage recommended Shangrila as a great place for lunch while waiting on my mac repair. It didn't disappoint!

I love Shangrila's version of Tikka Masala. It's the best I've found in the North Bay. The momo's are excellent (dumplings suffed with vegetables or lamb) served with a delicious dipping sauce. Fresh, organic ingredients used often -They serve a nice organic mixed green salad - which one doesn't often find in Indian/Nepalese Cafes. (ask for salad dressing on the side - it is the one 'sauce' that tastes bottled here). Owned by a very nice, very hard working family who send a portion of profits to Nepal to support a women's shelter.

These folks stick to what they do best. A small, carefully selected menu with each dish consistently prepared to perfection. Sauces their specialty! Plenty of choices for vegetarians. My favorites are Vegetable Tikka Masala and Palak Paneer (creamy spinach with cubes of homemade Indian style cheese that is quite similar to tofu in texture & mild flavor). The salads are made with fresh mixed baby greens, but the salad dressing is the one 'sauce' that tastes bottled and is a disappointment. Friendly, family run place. Great for take out!

This little restaurant is just so yummy! They have a great curry lunch special with chicken or veggie. Their lentil soup is also wonderful and they serve several different kinds of Naan. Depending on the day, the service can be a little slow but it doesn't matter because the food is so good! I highly recommend this little joint that is right across from Sonoma State University.
