We recently dined here with a group of 5. The food was uniformly delicious and the tofu was the best we had ever encountered, being crunchy on the outside and so very soft inside. We got orders of crabmeat balls, crabmeat buns, wontons in hot sauce, dan dan noodles, Mapo tofu with pork, green beans (these were exceptional), Kung Pao shrimp, General Tao tofu, and double cooked pork. The food was every bit the equal of the best Chinese restaurant we have been in (I would say that was Cheng's in Northern Virginia). When in Minneapolis again, we will definitely be back here or order take-out. It was a true delight.

For me, the best recommendation for any ethnic restaurant is to see customers from that country.
Good food, and wait staff who will remember you.

The best Chinese food in the Twin Cities. It is the sister restaurant to the Tea House in St Paul only kicked up a notch. Highly recommend it.

Nothing amazing, but just the kind of local Chinese I was hoping to find delivered. One delivery took 20-min, the other 45-50, but the portions are good and the food does the work

We will be back- the food, service and prices were all great. We tried many of the items and we will back back to try others! We enjoyed the the following appetizers in order if our favorites: Hot Sour Soup ($2.75), Mini Juicy Buns ($7.50), and the crabmeat balls ($6.95). Next we enjoyed our entrees of Pork in Garlic Sauce ($10.95) , which was pork with mushrooms & chestnuts, as well as the Szechuan Spicy Stir Fry. ($13.95) which was beef, chicken and tofu with a spicy sauce, jalapeños and red peppers
The service was excellent and attentive.
We enjoyed a Tsing Tao ($4.50)and diet coke ($1.95). Pictures provided of all items. We have plenty of left overs!
