Tina Louise is not your typical Chinese restaurant. This is a relatively small, family owned local restaurant serving very good quality meals with a variety of specials. The Wong family own & operate 5 or 6 restaurants in the area all of which are better than average. This restaurant is BYOB, no... read more

I have been coming here for years and I have to say I enjoy it very much. The boneless ribs are delicious, pan fried dumplings are equally delicious. I have tried a lot of the selections on the menu and I don't have any complaints. I went there tonight I had the Honey Chicken which was spicy and very good.... More

Went there Saturday for the second time to give the restaurant another chance since the first time was not a good experience. We ordered sauteed shrimp with garlic sauce, sauteed beef with oyster sauce, pan seared chicken with black bean sauce and not only the portions were small,certainly pricey for the size but the food was barely lukewarm and the...

We have been coming to Tina Louise for at least the past 10 years. This visit was "Just wanted a Great Meal without any problems". We travel about 25 miles to come here and it is worth the trip. Tina runs the Kitchen (food is always great) and Louise the front of the restaurant (were the service makes you feel... More

Finally made it here for lunch.Not your typical Chinese take out. Food was good and flavorful. No lunch specials as you know it which I thought was odd. Prices were too high for my taste but I expected that.Lunch with appetizer and entree, no drink, cost almost $30.

Very small dining room. Seemed every table but ours was locals with BYOB. What I wanted was not on the menu, but they made it and they did a great job with it. The portions were not too big; we were both able to polish off our meals. Only problem was it took awhile to be seated (restaurant was not... More

Smaller and more intimate Chinese restaurant. We found this local neighborhood restaurant Some of the best authentic Chinese food, great ambiance, and service. As they say "go where the locals go".

You won't be disappointed at this quaint restaurant. My wife and I like to order a bunch of appetizers and enjoy a nice bottle of wine at this BYO. Enjoy.

Tina Louise is a great experience. The restaurant is tiny and always full. The food is always exceptional. If you call a day ahead you can order Peking Duck which is worth the wait. The Noodles in Spicy Sauce make a great appetizer. We also had the Triple Crown special which was a concoction of beef, chicken and shrimp mixed... More

A small, cozy, brick wall and copper ceiling space with no view to speak of, but there doesn't need to be a view. The atmosphere, food and service keep you focused on your company and the meal. You will likely be greeted by Louise, the hostess that has never failed in being warm and inviting in all the years we... More
