Great food and great atmosphere! We ordered several entrees to share and everything tasted so good! We had an Australian friend visiting who wanted a specific drink on the menu and the bartender was very accommodating to fix it for all of us!

We celebrated my daughters graduation from the U of M, this past Sunday in a private room at Chinos. All in all everyone had a great time. What was disappointing was the food. I have been a Chinos fan for years and had somewhat high expectations, but sadly I was let down. I won't go through each item, but it... More

Chino Latino is one restaurant in the Twin Cities that keeps me coming back. Why? Fun food, fun staff, great ambiance. The food is creative and eclectic - a combination of Latin and Asian, but with a decidedly humorous twist. Not inexpensive though - share an entree - they run around $36 (and are meant to be shared). The small... More

We were there on Valentine's Day, so the place was packed of course! I had made reservations on line, which I was SO grateful for and I would recommend to anyone that they should do so in advance! The food was very unique. It's a mix of Caribbean and Mexican and Reggae all wrapped up in one! I loved the... More

So the foods great, get the pork belly steamed buns. You'll love them. I got a passion-fruit margarita oh my god I'm glad I wasn't driving home it was SO strong! It was really loud. Most of the time we couldn't talk because I couldn't hear the person sitting next to me. Venues fun though. Right in uptown.

I went with co-workers and we weren't impressed with our food, especially given the price and rave reviews we had heard going in. The drinks were good, however, and they saved the day! Running into the front desk girl from our hotel out with her friends was also fun! I recommend the Passionate Eruption (for two)!!!

I teetered a bit between 3 and 4 stars on this place. Truth be told the food is just ok. It tastes like 3 stars. Nothing that you'll have to come back to ever eat again, nothing memorable, nothing stood out. But they definitely get 5 stars for novelty. The food presentation is great and the funky atmosphere is definitely... More

Imaginative food served in a hip night-club-like environment made it the ideal place for our teen son to enjoy dinner out with parents reuniting with college friends. We love Pad Thai and can say this is some of the best we've ever had. Ditto on the paella. When they tell you that the Bang Bang Firecracker Wings are HOT, believe... More

This restaurant looked like a club where meals are served among noisy groups of people drinking shots and shouting. The food was overcooked and wasn't worth it at all. I'm not coming back.
