“Fresh, inexpensive and good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

I stumbled in to Chin's while looking for a place for lunch that would be fast, but with freshly cooked items. Like Pei Wei and other more well-known competitors, Chin's accomplishes all with attentive service, tasty food (spicy if you wish) and inexpensive prices. I ordered the Sesame Chicken lunch with brown rice. The portions are sizable for one person.

The restaurant itself has pretty basic decor, but with large windows allowing in a lot of outside light. Parking is easy and free.

My lunch (without drink) totaled a mere $7.75. No tips are expected. For the price paid and service, this is a high value lunch option in Minnetonka.

“Just OK, convenient location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

We like asian food and Chins is convenient, but the flavor is usually too americanized and overwhelmed with msg for our taste. It would be good if the sauces were toned down and not so salty and tangy via unnatural flavoring. It's good in a jam, but I never feel great about making this food choice after the meal.

“Better/Healthier than Leann Chin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

I like the Vietnamese spring rolls at Chin's asia fresh--their curries and sauces are really good seem a bit lighter and healthier than Leann Chin. Make sure to sign up for their text promos because they send out buy-one-entree-get-one-free, which is a great deal!

“DISGUSTING!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2010

FYI I AM ASIAN. And this is the worst Asian restaurant I have ever been to. Service is fine. But the food is HORRIBLE! DISGUSTING! These Americans do NOT know how to make Asian foods! I ordered beef with vegetables and chose a sauce with it. It tastes like it had been frozen and then thawed and reheated. You can tell because the broccoli's are soft and dry! The beef tastes like cheap beef stew that you'd have to chew on it for a while before taking it down. To so-called spring rolls aren't even spring rolls! They're egg rolls instead and are soggy inside. the wantons definitely has been sitting out for a while.The place looks pretty and professional, but the food is cheap and disgusting!! Please think twice before going here. I only write reviews on places that are horrible and great. And this is definitely a place in which I think you all need to hear about!
