1. Shangri-La 4710 Cass Ave, Detroit, MI 48201 (Midtown)

Frequently lauded as the best place for authentic Chinese food in Detroit, this tranquil Midtown spot is beloved by locals for its wide-reaching menu and vibrant cocktails. Food offerings range from dim sum, noodles, vegetarian rice bowls, sushi, and a variety of different soups, all prepared traditionally and with fresh, flavorful ingredients. The affordable combination deals make Shangri-La a popular lunch destination, but later evening hours of operation make it equally solid for dinner.
