I want to start by saying I have eaten in the finest dim sum restaurants in the country. I never thought I would find better than Chinatown in NYC. Well I did and it was in Tinkytown! The food here was second to none. The service was better than the food. We were taken care of from the minute we... More

I have come here for lunch a few times. Pleasing entrees but nothing exceptional. The food is geared towards a standard MN Asian palette.

My wife and I went here on a tip from a friend. We were amazed on how great the food was. The Kung Pao chicken had the best flavor of anything we've ever had before. We also had the General Tsao chicken and it was good too. Would like to give it 5 stars but the service was kind of... More

The restaurant is located in Dinkytown, which is area around the U of M. We went there at 8pm and ordered Dim Sum as well as other items off the menu. It was great to get dim sum at a time other than a Saturday or Sunday morning. They give you a separate sheet to order the dim sum-kind of... More

I love Vietnamese coffee but this one was absoutely bitter. The waitress went ahead and charged us anyways after I complained.

Awesome food Decent ambience Kung pao chicken could have been more spicy. Mangolian chicken has more veggies than chicken Value for money Service was good!

We ordered a lot of food - and didn't like much of it. Our server was Emily, and she was good but couldn't compensate for the food - the lamb with green onions had zero green onions (seriously). Emily got us green onions on the side. Tom Yum soup was not on par. Neither was sesame chicken or the fish.... More

Took my family for an introduction to China. I have visited China 20+ times but my family is going in spring for my son's wedding. Food is as close to authentic you can find in Minneapolis and the crowd is > 50% Asian. Good value and many items they don't have in the suburbs.

Visited today for dim sum. Called yesterday to make a reservation for 1pm then had to call back an hour prior to push back half hour & staff were very helpful despite very busy. Found metered parking spot right outside ($1.25/hr), and although it was hectic, we were seated not long after. Every staff member was extremely friendly & helpful.... More

All you can eat hot pot $19.95 per person. I enjoy the fish , steak and Chinese broccoli the most . It's very filling if you go for the first time I recommend getting half orders of everything especially the tofu. I like the Szechuan broth it's a little spicy . They have different sauces to dip . I always... More
