The sign out front is a "Mess" faded and painted over etc. which made us drive past the place numerous times before a local resident recommended we try it... We ate there one evening and unanimously thought this place should be #1 on the charts. The owner has charm and a really neat story plastered all over the walls. The... More

We have tried many Montana oriental restaurants and none compare! They provide lots of food and the best part is that it is authentic.

This is casual dining, rustic even. Exactly appropriate for a touristy hunting-fishing-skiing town. American and Asian dishes. Service is as good as service gets. My cashew stir-fry was so good we had to return the next day for some more. Vegetarian options. I could eat here almost every day! I could tell that a lot of care goes into the... More

I've tried this place a couple of times now and the service is great. The food is okay, but it just cannot compare to great Chinese food like I have had on the west or east coast. Montana is proving to be a challenge to find decent Asian food. The back story on the owner and chef is endearing and... More

Our family had a great meal tonight at Tien's. Since we're from out of state we were unsure of where to go for dinner. Checked tripadvisor and the reviews for this restaurant were very positive so we thought we'd check it out. We had an excellent appetizer (shrimp and bacon in a roll) and I had the wonton soup as...

I absolutely love Tiens and am so glad that I'm local so I can eat here whenever I want! Their Vermicelli is the best I've had and I have eaten at an array of asian restaurants. Their hot and sour soup is AMAZING! Great service and Tien always says hello to us. Just a great restaurant all around.

We went to Tien's on a Thursday night in mid-September and the place was packed but the waitresses and other staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. We were happy to find many vegetarian options, although the menu was a bit confusing at first. We had a ginger stir fry with veggies and tofu, and crispy noodles with... More

Food was very fresh and tasty, service was exceptional. Sweet and sour prawns were to die for and as other reviewers said, egg rolls are fantastic. We went twice in one week. Didn't care for the combination plates as well as individual dinners but they were very busy on that night (Friday). Prices are reasonable. Glad we discovered this hidden... More

This place has theeeeee best sweet and sour sauce. Their food is amazing and is my favorite Asian place to go. They don't have a lot of room for parties over 6 but still worth it to go and sit in different tables. There is only one waitress who has kind of an attitude (not sure on name) young Asian... More

We happened upon this restaurant in search of a healthy meal. We were not dissappointed. Many of the menu offerings were tempting. We settled on a curry dish and BBQ pork with vegetables, and the combination rice. All the food tasted fresh and spiced to our liking. Tein's story of childhood survival is very moving.
