After 37 Years, QC Restaurant Shangri-La Finest Chinese Cuisine Is Closing Down
This resto once served Pope John Paul II.
(SPOT.ph) If you’ve ever had to attend a birthday or banquet in the West Triangle area, chances are, you’ve been to Shangri-La Finest Chinese Cuisine. You’ll want to treasure those memories, because the 37-year-old restaurant announced that they’re closing by August 1, and will remain open for dine-in and take-out only until July 31.
“It is with great sadness that we are announcing that effective August 1, 2020, Shangri-La Finest Chinese Cuisine will cease its operations, due for the most part to the challenges brought about by the ongoing pandemic, which has plagued not only our country, but the entire world as well,” the restaurant writes in a social media post.
“We will cease operations but the memories we had with you will be imbedded in our hearts and minds,” they continue in the post. “We would not be this successful if not for all of you, who celebrated your great moments, achievements, and even your simple get-togethers with us. Deeply, we are moved by your support and loyalty to Shangri-La Finest Chinese Cuisine.”
The restaurant, which is unaffiliated with the hotel chain of the same name, was a go-to venue for many, thanks to its tasty Chinese eats and elegant interiors. In its almost-four decade run, it has catered to many families and special guests, including Pope John Paul II in 1995.
