Yes, this is a very expensive Chinese restaurant. It used to be fairly good -- it was never great. But now, the food is really bad. On my most recent visit (December 30, 2013), some of the food was inedible. The Peking duck was full of grizzle and fat -- I couldn't eat it. I couldn't eat the other first courses either. The main courses were mediocre, but at least I could eat them. It's a comfortable place with good service, but the food is really bad.

My husband and I went for Restaurant week and it did cost us a fortune for lunch. Tasty food but too expensive as the quality was ok. The bathrooms are need for repair. This place needs to be torn down and rebuilt and then I will understand why the cost of food is high. Thanks for the meal.

As an old, regular consumer of Shun Lee West, I have been trying to give this restaurant a break these past couple of years. But to no avail. The food now is actually disappointing, the shrimp dishes don't taste fresh, the sauces are either very spicy or very bland, the service indifferent and impatient.....it really is a pity as it was a wonderful restaurant.

Indifferent service. Fair food. All meals looked alike even though all were different. Entrance smells like bleach. Fixtures and restrooms are worn and need updating. Not good at all after a long and good reputation. Would never go back

What did three of us get for $255.00 ? A "whole" peking duck that was was the size of an underfed parrot, with tough meat, unforgetable dumplings, two tasteless main dishes, one beer, and one ice cream-served by an inattentive wait staff just going through the motions. The reception area and dining room badly need redecorating, and the men's room was so dirty that it should have been closed.

Good food. Sesame chicken is great. I only wish they would expand their menu.

We have been eating here for years and always enjoyed it. We went last week and although the food is still good, and the service was too, the place has really gotten a little seedy. It needs to be spruced up and it is time to renovate that restroom in a back corner of the restaurant that looks like it is in a storeroom!.
