“sweet and sour rocks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

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 girl. Tien is an amazing owner. He makes most of the food. He supports A LOT of events in columbia falls that I have heard of.

“Really tasty food! Great menu selections.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

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. You can read it on the restaurant wall while waiting for your meal.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Tien's is always the first place we stop when were in town. Best egg rolls and the rum cake is to die for, so good. Staff is friendly and always accommodating.

“Not Good”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

When your waitress has to say "sorry for the delay" 5 times, there is a man power problem. Our waitress also had to man the cash register. The food was somewhat adequate. They have what they call a combination rice--it is a cheap imitation of spanish rice--Really ?? in a Chinese restaurant. The Chinese menu is quit limited., it is like they are trying to satisfy all types of food lovers and not succeeding in any of them. This may be all right for Columbia Falls but it shouldn't be. Will not come back and don't recommend.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Delicious food, excellent service, very clean. Alot of the dishes are made with nuts or vegetable oil that has had nuts sauteed in it. I mentioned I am allergic, and the waitress asked what I like, said trust me, and came out with an amazing stir fry. Very reasonable prices.
