Go here for good food, value and nice owners. It is hidden in the basement! The choices are excellent for vegitarians and the rest of us. We could have just ordered the eggplant and been satisfied. Excellent bottomless tea pot. I prefer local family owned businesses and this is on our return... read more

I went to Evergreen with my family. The stuff my Dad and siblings got looked good, but the fried tofu my mother and I got was a different story. I expect fried tofu to be deep fried and crispy. This was clearly pan fried and not crispy at all. I decided to go here because I have heard good things... More

8/18/2014 We were vacationing in Minneapolis and wanted to find a vegan friendly restaurant. My child is allergic to egg, and poultry which makes it difficult to eat while traveling. We tried Evergreen on the last day of our trip and regret we did not go there sooner! Their menu is extensive and almost every dish can be made with... More

Stupidly, I did not check the Trip advisor ratings when searching for one Chinese meal to have as I passed through Minneapolis yesterday. Instead, I had just googled, "best Chinese restaurant" for the area and, knowing nothing at all of dining ion the Twin Cities, went with the 2012 top pick by something called "Minneapolis City Pages". Their review has... More

The food here is great and the staff really kind and helpful. But I must admit, the ambiance is lacking and the smell of dampness is really off-putting! I read great things about this restaurant so I avoided the desire to turn and run and really did love the food. So be brave and don't let the small put you... More

Didn't mind the lack of ambience at all, I am all about food. My husband and I visited the evening of May 8th and ordered 3cup tofu, the wide noodle veg lo mein and veg spring rolls. The veg spring rolls were ok, the wasabi mustard mixed with sweet sauce made it great. However the 3 cup tofu was very... More

Each of the 3 of us had delicious meals. Very good vegetarian choices since each diner can choose their protein. As one Reviewer wrote the restaurant ambiance wasn't stellar, but we came for the food. The restaurant is not on street level, the signs clearly directed us to the lower level. We found parking in the rear. The neighborhood is... More

Great mock-everything. Great for mixed vegetarian & meat eater groups. We love eating here. It is lacking in ambiance but the food makes up for it.

We ate here during a recent stay in Minneapolis. Please don't eat here. It looks like lots of folks gave it 4 and 5 stars. I can eat just about anything, anywhere. I gave it 2 stars, and I recommend you do not eat here. It is located downstairs in a rough neighborhood. We were afraid to go downstairs, wondering... More

Evergreen restaurant allows me to eat all the Chinese meals I miss since becoming a vegetarian. With mock chicken, beef, pork and shrimp options, you will never run out of entrees to try (my favorite is the lemongrass mock beef). Just make sure that you don't drive through the little road between the Evergreen and the store next door. Those... More
