This restaurant has been around for a long time. We have been there a few times over the years. It usually is very loud during dinner time. So loud, you have to yell at the person sitting across from you. Don't be fulled about the Buddha ice cream, trust me the two of you cannot eat it. It's more like... More

Ate here with some colleagues while visiting Minneapolis. The food was very good. The atmosphere is a lot of fun. One down side is how loud the restaurant got. It was a bit difficult to carry a conversation without feeling like you were yelling. Even then, we had a great time eating a great meal.

Chino is a top restaurant in Minneapolis and probably the best in uptown. It has a cool, edgy club vibe with great asian/mexican inspired dishes. Great for any occasion, good drinks, and great atmosphere.

If you're going for dinner, get a reservation. If you pop in for a drink, get a specialty drink mixed up. Its a great atmosphere within an even great neighbourhood. Go and you won't be disappointed.

Great spot for a girls night out. The environment is really fun and lots for people watching. The servers are great and the drinks are strong. The food is okay, a lot of speciality items. It can be a bit pricy.

Live in the neighborhood and have eaten here on off since it opened over 10 years ago. Dined there tonight and was appalled at he food. Ordered a Senegalese beef curry, chicken potstickers and carnitas taco. All of it was tasteless, devoid of flavor or texture. How can carnitas be that bland and mushy? The curry looked like mud and... More

We come whenever we are in Minneapolis because it is fun and the food is good. The presentation of the meals are always will done, prongs are huge, ... and consistently good. Be sure to check out the bathroom as well. HA! It is pricey, so be ready for that, if it bothers you there are plenty of other places... More

You will love this place. The drinks are amazing. The apps are awesome!!! The dinner is delicious. Everything we ordered was fantastic. Great seasoning, cooked perfect, presented perfectly. You can't go here and not enjoy it. The larger the group the more fun you'll have. You have to go!!!
