My wife dragged me here on a hometown visit. She used to be a regular during her 8 years at the university, and constantly talks about the roast duck. I finally got the pleasure on a rainy Monday. I am not a huge duck fan, unless it is Peking Duck with pancakes and hoisin sauce, but you need to order... More

It's convenient when working long hours at the U, but the food there is not so typical Chinese. Sometimes it's been fatty.

The menu has large selection and the price was fair. The plate serves size was good for two people to eat. It was nice overall.

For about a decade, this was the go-to place for reasonably priced reliably good Asian food. We called it 'the usual.' We were regulars from 1998 - 2010 or so, then went less frequently, maybe 3-4 times a year, so we were really disappointed and surprised by the decline in quality this visit. We ordered calamari, it was literally room... More

My wife and I had lunch @ Village Wok on 12/3/12 based on recommendations from U of M people . We had 3 won-ton dishes: won-ton soup, cheese won-tons, and fried dumplings, The flavor on the cheese won-tons and fried dumplings were good, but they use a thick won-ton wrapper that is very tough and the dishes were very greasy....

Great spot in Minneapolis for fast and tasty Chinese. Started going in college and haven't stopped since. Huge menu, delicious chicken curry, and addicting cream cheese puffs. Service is always super fast. Can get busy, expect to deal with a little bustle. Also, surprisingly good seafood for a midwest restaurant.

The menu here is quite extensive. My daughter is a student at the U and this is one of her favorite places to go. We have had several dinners with her here. The portions are large and prices are decent.

We eat here whenever we in Minneapolis and anywhere near the U of M. The food is great and a good value. We always take food away with us. Love the eggplant but anything we've had has been very good. The atmosphere is crowded academic. And shame on. Them the restroom is down a long dark cellar stairs--inaccessible!
