Love going here for the food and the convenience. The meals are always delicious, I've never had anything bad here. They are also very fast with our order normally (we call it in and leave and it's ready for pick up when we get there!). Never eaten in the restaurant but it appears to have a nice, quiet atmosphere.

Stopped at the drive up window, ordered up Vegetable Egg Foo Young $ 5.95. Delicious with a large portion of white rice and the proverbial Fortune Cookie and Soy Sauce.

They were in the midst of cleaning up - vacuuming... and getting ready to close. We were greeted promptly when we went in... asked to sit in a... More

been going here for 35 yrs. food is the best around, they just raised their prices but that will not stop me from going because food is that good,the only thing I think should be changed is the thickness of the potstickers dough.

Some of the best take out Chinese food around. Food is cooked to order and tastes fresh. Chicken in chowmein is bigger pieces not that small chopped up processed stuff. My favorite is the Asia Special Chowmein. Winnie and Tim are very friendly.

This place was close to our hotel, and we were both in the mood for Chinese food, so we stopped by on a rainy Sunday afternoon. I asked what was in the chicken lo mein, and ordered it. When it arrived it was full of something that was not mentioned by the server - mushrooms. I can't stand mushrooms. When... More

Best eggrolls in the Twin Cities. Asia special chowmein is also a hit. The menu is comprehensive in terms of traditional chinese-american food.

They have been around forever and there is a reason for that. I am sorry that I cannot compare Asia to other places because this is the ONLY place I go. I do not live in the area, but make it a point to go there.
