The food is excellent, but the service is among the worst I've experienced. Be careful to order your appetizer and hang onto your menu pretending to decide your main course. Otherwise you may get every course at once. Or the main, then the appetizer. Even this method of ordering isn't fool proof. Last night my husband got his appetizer while I waited and watched him uncomfortably eat in front of me. Then my appetizer came and I hurried so we could order mains. We ordered off the kitchen menu and both dishes were missing the rice. How an Asian restaurant can run out of rice escapes me, but we had to wait. Halfway through our dinners the rice came. We had three different servers interrupting our conversation every few minutes. This has been an ongoing problem. At first we gave them a pass because they were new. By now they should have fixed the gaffes. We're done. Food is a 10. Service is a -10.
I have been addicted to authentic food at La Mixteca for over 10 years. There are many reasons why I am addicted to their food. They have a so much variety in their menu I could eat there for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They literally have 14 different preparations for different types of meat. Each is made in a totally separate fashion from the next. When I stop in more than once per week ( which happens frequently ) I can always find just the right meat. They know how to make authentic Mexican food the right way. They do not "Americanize" it they make just like they would if they were at home or in Mexico. They have such a passion for the food they make and it comes through in the food they serve. They care for their customers and make sure they are always happy. I would highly recommend La Mixteca as the best little Mexican restaurant in Bloomington.
Hands down the most delicious Thai in town, although I admit I haven't made it to all of them yet. Cooked to order, the King and I's egg rolls are crispy, flavorful tidbits served with a sweet-spicy dipping sauce that can cause addiction. The satay imbues meats with fine spices, fire-grilled and served with peanut sauce - and cucumbers to cleanse your palace. But the curries are its shining glory, with a wild variety from traditional to fusion. Fresh basil stir-fries, pad thai prepared to your order, and a huge variety of other dishes spiced from mild to mouth-mangle. Dine amid Thai sculptures and other treasures; full bar and interesting desserts. Wish they were back on Nicollet Mall, but we would go very far out of our way to make to King and I, if they weren't so close to downtown.
Don't blink or you will miss it. This little business ran by a couple, does most of their business by delivery, but you can eat in, but onl. It sits a couple miles east of hwy 169 & Rockford Rd., just past the cement underpass on the right. It only holds about 8 people. It is in an old gas station, has an orange roof. It is great food! The couple are very friendly, I have taken several people there and they are always supprised, they say they would never have ever stopped but, it is really really good food! I would highly recommend it!!!
Tasty and generous portion Take-Out or Delivery Chinese food. Our family is addicted to Eddie Cheng's because we consistently receive delicious food, delivered usually within 30 minutes and still piping hot. We always have to add Hot and Sour Soup & Pork Fried Rice to our regular favorites. If you order the "large" portions for the menu items; you will have enough for at least two meals. Their delivery people are always courteous and we have never had a mistake on our order. Look for the coupons in the Value Pak.
Its a good enough Indian restaurant. We had gone for the lunch buffet on a weekend visit to Minneapolis and have no clue about the dinner offering. The lunch buffet menu is fairly standard, though I did end up liking their fried pakoras (appetizers), daal (lentil curry) and also mango falooda (dessert) which is something I havent seen in Indian restaurants I have been to. The cost is also fairly inexpensive with a 2 person lunch coming out to $21. Would definitely go there if I ever visit Minneapolis again.
The food is good, and if you like sushi, there's plenty to choose from, better than many buffets in the area. And their Habachi is good too, for what they offer. Their better than many places in this area. But I have to say that some people commenting here just don't tip worth a damn, I've often seen HUGE 20+ plus families drop a dollar on the table! Thus the servers who sometimes have to really knock themselves out for groups like that (who abuse the heck out the place) try and speak up once in a while.
This place is like a trip to the past, with all the Americanized Chinese food of our youth. Egg Foo Yong is crispy on the outside, silky inside. My personal favorite is the Hunan sauce, real rich. Orders can be personalized for any veggies, MSG or nuts you may not like. Anything with shrimp is great. Moo shoo with pancakes to die for. The place is a little run-down, but hey - they don't speak English in the kitchen, they're still all Chinese, and they are all eating the food!!!
I have been going to the Yangtze for over the last 20 plus years and since the first time I tried their sesame shrimp I have yet to find another restaurant that even comes close to creating a dish that pales in comparison. I would strongly recommend them to anyone looking for very good Chinese food. Since I have moved, down to the Jordan area I don’t get up there that much but every now and than I make the journey and drive the 30 plus miles just for their food for it is that good!
I went here with a friend. She seemed to enjoy her combo platter, but mine was disappointing. The fried rice was tasty, as was the egg fu young, or would have been if there weren't eggshells in it. The waitress was very nice and called the manager. Who was dismissive and did not offer any discount or to redo the dish. The mushroom chicken was made with canned mushrooms just thrown on top, and chicken pieces that were too small to see. Overall not the most positive experience.
