This is the absolute best Chinese food in the area. Delicious, great value, and generous portion sizes. The lunch special comes with your choice of entree, fried rice, your choice of soup and an egg roll or crab Rangoon. Their hot tea is so awesome....More

It's been awhile since I've stopped here but have gotten to go orders a couple times. The food has always been hot and fresh, and ready when I show up.

The family that owns the restaurant has been serving the area for years. We've watched the family grow into wonderfully fun people as we have eaten the deliciously prepared food. The decor is very zen-like. The booths and tables are comfy. It's a great place...More

We ate in and were very happy with our meals. Everything came out promptly and steaming hot. It was all very tasty with good portions. I can see why it is popular as a take out spot.

This is some of the best Chinese food you will find anywhere. Top-of-the-line Szechuan dishes and Moo Shu. Their Hot & Sour Soup is perfect (not slimy). Prices are very reasonable. Terrific lunch specials available until 3:00 daily. Service is just OK.

A visit to Shao Ting Guo is always a treat. The food is always fresh & hot. And never a long wait. Even if they are busy. Prices are good as well. Carry out is available as well.

This is the place to go for the best Chinese food in north-central Iowa. The prices are extremely reasonable and the service is always excellent. As an added bonus, it's located near the historic Surf Ballroom.
