This place is barely average. It is your standard "Norwegian/Chinese" so if you like it bland and mediocre, this is your place. The only plus is that they are open late. My first choice, eight blocks north closes at 9:00. The dish I tend to...get every time is the Singapore Rice Noodles. They are average and decent. They've never done a good job with the sesame noodles. Every time I've ordered 'cold' they've been hot, and the last time there wasn't much of any sesame sauce, mostly spicy oil. The fried dumplings are terrible with a thick, gummy dough. There was no crisp on them. I suspect their cooking oil wasn't hot enough. It wouldn't be hard for them to get a new brand with traditional wonton skins. - I know there's no accounting for taste but if you really like this place you have a lot to learn.More

Yucky food, yucky counter help. Screwed up the order, was crabby about fixing it - wanted to charge more to fix it - food was awful.

Placed an order for delivery just last night, Seafood soup and Pu Pu platter for 2. The order was delivered 45 minutes later. It consisted of bean curd soup, bland, tasteless, no flavor and totally cold, old, over-cooked, and inedible Pu Pu platter. After tossing...my plate of food, we called them back to report the problems only to hear "so sorry." I will NEVER order from this place again.More

We order and either pick up or have the Bite Squad deliver. this is not a fine dining sit-down restaurant with atmosphere. I have had multiple dishes repeatedly and all have been fresh and flavorful. They use highest quality ingredients and have talented chef/cooks. Prices...are modest. Best Cantonese/Szechuan in a 10 mile urban radius. I am a snob about Cof very long standing about Chinese food and these people are excellent.More

It's a little whole in the wall place. Mostly take out, but a few tables to eat in. Seems very popular with a stream of take outs in evening. Disregard the thoroughly faded back-lit photos of plates over head and use the paper menu. I...ordered the broccoli with garlic. Although the menu had it in red to indicate spicy, I asked for spicy seasoning. The wait was only a couple minutes as the guys prepped it just a few feet away. I took the front table to eat on and they brought me a plate of rice along with the main dish and a plastick fork and water. The main not only had bright green properly cooked broccoli, but peapods, carrots and water chestnuts. While there were plenty of pepperoncinos, the heat was there but not excessive at all. Perhaps the rather sweet sauce (garlic and tasty, but I could have use less sugar) may have tempered the heat. I think if I hadn't ask for spicy, it would have been too mild foe me. Overall, pretty good. I would go back and try another dish. Sign on wall says they don't use MSG.More

This place is the best you can find within a few miles. The veggies are fresh and the sauces taste good. Plus, the price is right.

we had a marathon business meeting and needed a quick takeout lunch. Fresh Wok was nearby and we had a wonderful, good and quick lunch. The staff was great and remembered us when we went back the next day! Definitely a good lunch place to...keep in mind when in South Minneapolis.More

We love this little joint. It has the best Hot & Sour soup for comfort. We absolutely cannot rave enough about the.Singapore noodles, light curry with just the right amount of heat. Also they've a phenomenal fried duck, our teenager's favorite. Lunch specials range from...$5.55 -$5.75 & include choice of soup, wonton or egg roll, it also includes roast fried rice is a great bargain. The portions are generous, so bring a great appetite. We hope if you are in this area, come in and enjoy a great Chinese meal.More

Quick good meals. I've been coming here for years and it's been the same the whole time with an exception being the egg rolls have gotten smaller.

Whenever I'm in South Minneapolis I stop by. Can't beat their prices. Fill my belly for under $6 with their lunch specials! That's the plug. Or when I'm partying downtown staying at the telly I just order delivery to help prevent a hangover.

The generals chicken is excellent! Real white meat chicken breasts battered and dipped in a sweet and slightly spicy sauce. It's honestly larger quality chucks of chicken with way less batter than the usual I have had@ other places. Best if you order for pick...up since dining is extremely limited.More

Had the best sesame chicken ever! Nice glaze on it, yet not sickenly sweet like most places. Also, the breading was so light and crispy, it seemed like there was no breading at all. Most places serve a lot if dough with very little chicken....Will return, for sure! Plus, they deliver within 5 miles.More
